Vacuum Therapy Device Instructions

Vacuum therapy devices are the first treatment option offered to patients with erectile dysfunction or impotence. Impotence or Erectile dysfunction is the body’s inability to get or keep an erection for a period of time. Vacuum therapy devices are only one of the treatments for ED. Also offered are medications, penile implants, surgery to reroute the blood flow to the penis as well as injections. Vacuum therapy devices are also known as penis pumps or ED pumps. ED pumps and penis pumps can be purchased without a prescription through many online retailers.

Vacuum therapy devices range in price, but are still much less expensive overall than any other treatment options. Vacuum therapy devices come in a variety of colors and models, and can be found through many online retailers; some of which will help process Medicare or private insurance payments. Vacuum therapy devices are all made of the same basic parts: penile tube, pump and sometimes constriction rings. The penis is inserted into the penile tube that is sometimes outfitted with a sleeve. The tube is placed down onto the pelvis and the pump is then engaged. This causes the blood to rush to the penis, causing an erection. The vacuum therapy device is still in place when constriction rings are placed at the base of the penis and the device is then removed. The rings help to sustain the erection for sexual use.

Vacuum therapy devices can be used as many times as needed, and as often as needed without serious side effects like other treatment options. The pumps are sometimes covered by Medicare or private insurance policies depending on medical need. If a doctor were to prescribe the vacuum therapy device, it is more apt to be considered a medical need and therefore paid for with little to no out of pocket cost to the patient.
