About Impotence


Erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence refers specifically to problems achieving or maintaining an erection and is the most common sexual health condition in men. Often referred to as 'ED' this can affect men of all ages who often have a healthy libido, but their bodies fail to respond to sexual encounters by producing an erection Causes range from anxiety and stress to surgery, tiredness or lifestyle choices.

Symptoms of erectile dysfunction include erections that are too soft for sexual activity, erections that last only briefly and an inability to achieve erections.   

Erectile dysfunction is a common condition. In fact, more than one in 10 men will struggle with erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives.

Vacuum Therapy Solution

Impotence can be temporary or permanent and is mainly caused by physical problems but can also have a psychological origin. 
To understand the reasons for erectile dysfunction, it’s important to know how an erection occurs. When aroused, your brain sends signals to the blood vessels in your penis, relaxing the arteries and allowing blood to flow in. The veins then close to trap the blood in your penis, causing it to expand and harden. Anything that interferes with these impulses or restricts blood flow to the penis can result in erectile dysfunction.
Vacuum erection devices, also called ED pumps, offer an alternative to medication. To use an erectile dysfunction pump, the penis is placed inside a cylinder. Then the pump draws air out of the cylinder to create a partial vacuum around the penis causing it to fill with blood, leading to an erection. An elastic band worn around the base of the penis is used to maintain the erection during intercourse.
