 How do Vacuum Erection Devices work?

An erection is caused by an increase in blood flow to the penis when a man is sexually aroused. Vacuum therapy duplicates this process. The erecaid creates an erection by placing the penis in a vacuum cylinder and applying a gentle negative pressure vacuum with a manual or battery operated pump. The negative vacuum draws blood into the penis which creates the erection. The erection is then maintained by a specially designed tension ring that is transferred by the patient from the device to the base of the penis. The erection will be maintained as long as the band is on, even through ejaculation. The tension band will hold the erection for up to 30 minutes.

Warning: The tension band should not be worn over 30 minutes


What if my vacuum device is not working?

Most failures are due to improper use. However, the device will not work for a small percentage of men who may be sensitive to the vacuum pressure or who may be anatomically restricted. Common mistakes include; not using the proper lubricant or amount of lubricant, allowing enough time for penile engorgement, or using the wrong tension band. Using the right lubricant is a critical part of the process. Use a generous amount of water based lubricant like Soma Therapy Lubricant or Osbon Lubricant on the pubic hair and on the penile shaft. The lubricant aids in maintaining the vacuum seal through hair and skin which is necessary for engorgement and allows the penis expansion in the cylinder. Do not use a petroleum-based product for the vacuum process and try to keep as much lubricant as possible off the testicles.

Maintaining vacuum level is another common mistake. The maximum vacuum one should use is the amount tolerable without experiencing pain or discomfort. The erection does not always engorge at the same time vacuum is increased. The maximum tolerable vacuum should be maintained until the penis becomes fully engorged. This process may take a few minutes. Transfer the band to the base of the penis while the vacuum is still applied. Losing vacuum before the band is transferred can cause a loss of engorgement. The tension ring should be tight enough to hold the erection during intercourse, but should not be worn over 30 minutes. You may have to experiment with different size bands to find the proper tension required for your success. Some men experience excessive venous and require a special high-tension ring. See Tension Bands for ordering information. If you are a customer and have questions regarding the use of your vacuum device, contact us for professional assistance.

Are there precautions in using vacuum erection devices.  VED  is a safe method for treating impotence. The tension band is not to be worn over (30) thirty minutes. The blood must return to the body after thirty minutes. Patients with sickle cell anemia or who take MAO inhibitors should consult with a Physician before use.
