The New Viagra: Erectile Dysfunction 'Can Be Cured With New Sonic Therapy Machine'

Posted: Updated:

A sound-wave machine, hailed as the new Viagra, is promising to eradicate flagging libidos for good.

The revolutionary ED1000 treatment for erectile dysfunction has the ability to reverse the cause of impotence by blasting the area using sonic therapy.

The treatment involves sending 100 blasts of low-intensity shock waves per minute through the penis, stimulating the growth of new micro blood vessels inside the penile tissues.

The sonic therapy is said to break up hardened arteries or narrowed blood vessel pathways, which restricts the blood flow through the penis – a common problem in a quarter of men over 40 suffering from ED.

The ED1000 Shock Wave Therapy, created by Medispec, is an "innovative approach to vasculogenic ED (erectile dysfunction) using acoustic technology,” according the company website.

The machine utilises low-intensity shock waves, focusing on blood vessels and encouraging neovascularisation in the penis shaft and crus. The low-intensity shock waves help relieve vascular deficiency, a common cause of erectile dysfunction.”

In order to turn love lives from flaccid to fabulous, patients would need to endure 12 quarter-hour sessions over a period of nine weeks. Although the treatment sounds painful, it’s claimed that the patient will only experience a tingling feeling shortly after.

It’s been two years since the first trials of the ED1000 machine, and according to Medispec, patients have reported long-lasting effects following the treatment.

Over half of men aged between 40 and 70 years old suffer from some degree of ED, while transient erectile dysfunction can affect men of all ages.

Viagra (otherwise known as a ‘PDE5 Inhibitor’), treats ED symptoms on a temporary basis but does not tackle the cause, which is why the ED1000 is bringing fresh hope to ED sufferers wanting to cure the condition.

The treatment is now being offered to men for the first time in the UK at the Spire Murrayfield Hospital in Edinburgh, for the price of £1,500 for 12 visits over nine weeks.

“This treatment is a revolution is the management of erectile dysfunction. For the first time we are able to cure some patients with ED rather than treat them symptomatically,” Dr. Roland Donat says on the hospital website.

The treatment claims to work on men who've previously failed to respond to PDE5 Inhibitors like as Cialis, Viagra or Levitra. It is considered among urologist the biggest revolution in the past 15 years.

What is erectile dysfunction (ED)?
ED is the inability to get and maintain an erection that is sufficient for sexual intercourse. ED can be caused by a range of physical and psychological factors, but is mainly due to the narrowing of the blood vessels through the penis. This could be linked to high blood blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes. Psychological factors include anxiety, depression or relationship problems.

Lifestyle is a major contributing factor to the problem of erectile dysfunction. The NHS recommends making the following lifestyle changes to help treat the condition.
