Who is the ideal patient for the Viberect® device?
Penile vibratory stimulation works best for men with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction, and it can help men recover from pelvic surgery. It can also help men who have suffered spinal cord injury to obtain ejaculation.
Men with severe ED can combine penile vibratory stimulation with other modalities to improve response.
How does Viberect® work?
Millions of nerve receptors (antennas) line the surface of the penis. These nerves communicate with important sexual centers in the brain and spinal cord. These nerves play a critical role in the physiology of sexual response and urinary function.
Sexual arousal (erotic thoughts, sights, genital stimulation, etc.) lead to excitation of sacral spinal cord sexual centers. Their activation leads to a complex cascade of events which cause the penis to fill with blood. In order to achieve firmness, the blood must be prevented from leaking out of the corpora (erection chambers) of the penis.
Many important muscles are strategically located around the base of the penis, which scientists believe are greatly responsible for stabilizing the penis during rigidity phase of erection. They help squeeze the veins to prevent blood from leaving the penis; hence strengthening the rigidity and maintenance of erection.
For younger men without ED, all nerves, muscles, and vessels responsible for erection are optimized, and they effortlessly play in perfect harmony. As we get older, less healthy, depressed, over-medicated, or have interventions for cancer, then the Nerve/Vessel/Muscle triad plays out of tune. There is less flow, less excitement, less firmness due to venous leakage, and so on.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the inability to develop and maintain an erection for satisfactory sexual intercourse or activity. ED is a highly prevalent medical condition often associated with multiple causes. More than 50 million Americans suffer from mild/moderate to severe erectile function.
From Neurophysiological viewpoint, scientists believe that penile erection is a culmination of multiple successful nerve reflexes that initiate a vascular event.
The proprietary Viberect® method mimics rapid and repetitive manual/vaginal stimulation of the penis, which is an important aspect of sexual behavior of humans and higher mammals. Simultaneous vibratory stimulation of both surfaces of the penis at high frequency (70-110 Hz (hertz) for about 7-10 minutes can provoke penile erection and ejaculation by amplifying sexual pathways.
