Penis Stretching Devices
For Men With Peyronie's Disease
Penis stretching devices (penis traction devices) are increasingly seen as beneficial and practical treatment option for men with Peyronie's disease. There are many good reasons for this, as you will discover in this section.
In this articles section I go through the pros and cons of using Peyronie's stretching devices.
I'll explain the difference between the available penile devices, and for which Peyronie's patients each device type is be best suited.
How Do Penis Stretching Device Work For Treating Peyronie's Disease?
All stretching devices work on the same principle, i.e. they apply gentle but consistent traction force to stretch the penile tissues. The traction triggers the body's natural response of growing more tissue to ease the tension.
Simply put, when you stretch soft tissue it responds by growing new soft tissue. This may help correcting the penile curvature and reduce the penile plaque.

The Pros And Cons
Of Using Penis Stretching Devices To Treat Peyronie's
Penis medical devices are non-surgical and non-invasive treatment option. Some are classified as low risk medical devices for all (penis enlargement devices), while others may be better suitable for some Peyronie's patients than others (penis vacuum pumps - VED).
Peyronie's stretching devices are easy to use and patients' satisfaction tends to be high (penis traction devices) or moderate (penis vacuum pumps).
The treatment results from using penis stretching devices to treat men with Peyronie's have been promising. Further controlled studies are required but the initial indications are very encouraging.
Penis stretching devices are also among the cheaper Peyronie's treatment options, as no expensive doctor's visits or drugs are required. Peyronie's medical device treatment includes only the one-off cost of the actual device.
The main downside of using penile medical devices to treat Peyronie's is the time and commitment required from the patient, especially if going for penis traction device. The more committed you are to your treatment, the better result you can expect.
Do Penis Medical Devices Work For All Men With Peyronie's?
Penile medical devices have shown to be effective for penis curvature and may reduce the need for penis surgery.
Penis stretching devices work best for men with mild or moderate penis curvature. Penile surgery may be the only option left for men with extreme penile curvature (they may still benefit from using traction device before and after their surgery).
Dr. Levine, one of the best known Peyronie's specialists in the world today, now recommends traction therapy for all his non-surgical patients. He also recommends using it before (if possible) and after penis penis surgery.
The Main Penis Stretching Devices
Suitable For Men With Peyronie's Disease
The most suitable penis medical devices used to treat men with Peyronie's are penis extenders and penis vacuum pumps. Both are penis stretching devices and work on the same rationale, i.e. to stretch the penis in order to encourage the reconstruction of the scar tissue in the penis.
Penis Traction Device is a non-invasive and low risk medical device and as such suitable for all men. As a Peyronie's treatment, it is likely to give the best results for men with good erection quality and mild / moderately bent penis.
Couple of penis extenders, Andropeyronie and the Peyronies Device, have been adjusted to fit the needs of men with Peyronie's disease. They work on the penis curvature as well as the penis length and girth.
Both devices allow you to control the direction of the traction in order to apply stronger force to the opposite side of the penile curvature, i.e. to straighten bent penises.
Penis Vacuum Pumps
Penis Vacuum Pump, or vacuum erection device (VED), can improve or stabilize penis curvature and may reduce the number of men with Peyronie's requiring penis surgery.
Vacuum pumps are easy and convenient to use. They are particularly beneficial for Peyronie's patients that suffer from low quality erection or erectile dysfunction.
Men with Peyronie's should only use qualified penis pumps. It is vital that the pressure does not exceed 200-250 mmHg, i.e. to reduce the likelihood of pressure induced penis injury. Androvacuum penis pumps are within the acceptable safety limits.
Vacuum Protector System
The Vacuum protector system works on the same principles as the other penis stretching devices, i.e. by applying gentle stretching on the penis.
It cleverly combines the traction and vacuum technology and offers addition choice for men with Peyronie's disease.
Phallosan Forte is the only patented orthopedic belt system with this vacuum protector technology. It is safe and easy to use, with high patient satisfaction.
Phallosan may benefit some men with Peyronie's disease. It has shown to be effective in enhancing the penis (length and girth) but also to improve erection quality and may also work on the penis curvature.
Medically Approved Penis Stretching Devices
The quality of the penis medical devices varies greatly and some brands are more suitable to treat men with Peyronie's disease than others.
Most penis stretching devices available on the market today were originally designed to treat other penis problems than Peyronie's disease, like short penises (traction device) or erectile dysfunction (VED).
Couple of manufacturers have realized the potential of using penis stretching devices to treat Peyronie's disease. They have adjusted their penis enlargement device to meet the needs of men with Peyronie's disease, i.e. their traction device addresses the penis curvature as well as the penile length and girth.
When choosing the right penile device you should consider the device quality carefully. Peyronie's is a medical condition and you don't want to risk making your condition any worse than it is.
All the main penis device manufacturers claim their penis devices are medically approved but don't just take their words for it, make sure you confirm their claims.
I show you how to do exactly that in How To Choose The Right Penis Extender For Peyronie's Treatment. The same principles apply for any penis medical device you might be considering.
Comparing Peyronie's Medical Devices
My penis device comparison table at the end of this document will help you to compare the different Peyronie's medical devices available and find the one that may best suit your condition.
When making the penis device comparison you should consider the pros and cons, the possible risk involved, as well as the device quality, and the total cost of the treatment.
I have standardized the reporting format for all the Peyronie's treatment option that I cover on this website in order to make comparing the treatments consistent and clear.
For each penile stretching device, I list up the following; how it works, the benefits, the downside, side effects, and health risk involved. I summarize the reported results and link to the relevant penis device studies I have found.
I share my personal experience of the treatment (if any) and my personal opinion, i.e. would I consider the treatment or not based on the supporting evidences. I also encourage you and other visitors of MyPeyronies.com to share your experience and opinions with us.
I also give cost indication though comparing the cost of different Peyronie's treatments can be tricky. For this purpose, I have created five cost categories ($ = USD).
These cost categories are for guidance only. You may find cheaper or more expensive Peyronie's treatments available in your area / country:
|Cost Category||Cost Of Peyronie's Treatment|
|A||Less than $ 100|
|B||$ 100 - 299|
|C||$ 300 - 499|
|D||$ 500 - 1,000|
|E||More than $ 1,000|
Peyronie's stretching device treatment is among the cheaper treatment option. Most penis medical devices fall safely within category B (though you can find some brands in category C).
Compare the penis stretching devices you like best with the other Peyronie's treatment options available to you before making your mind up.
The best Peyronie's treatment plan for you may be achieved by combining more than one form of Peyronie's treatment. Penis medical devices are frequently used in conjunction with other treatment options, like oral treatments or injections.
Dr. Levine for example recommends Combined Nonsurgical Treatments to his patients, including oral medication, injections, and the use of penis traction device.
