Vacuum Erection Device also known as Vacuum Constriction Device or VED in short is a device that helps in creating erection in the penis in just 60 seconds. The device is a wonderful mechanism that helps people of all ages and is effective irrespective of the medical condition.
For older people it’s of help even if they are having BP, Diabetes or Cardiac problems and for young it’s helpful for early discharge problems. Since its non-invasive and the erection is created through creating vacuum externally only the side effects are nil.
BASIC PRINCIPLE :
The basic principle on how erection occurs is actually based on blood flow to the penis. Pills do this internally by increasing the heart pumping which normally leads to side effects like headache, dizziness and vision and hearing issues since blood flows with high pressure to these organs as well. Vaccum Erection device too increases the blood flow but without effecting any other organ. It’s a onetime buy product and the repeated visits to doctors and chemists can simply be avoided.
HOW IT WORKS :
This mechanical device consists of a plastic cylinder placed externally over the penis. The sleeve is then pushed up and down and within 60 seconds the erection occurs and the cylinder is removed leaving the ring at the base of the penis to sustain the erection for around 30 minutes. It is recommended that after 30 minutes ring must be removed to relax the penis muscles.
