Vacuum Protector System
For Treating Peyronie's Disease
The vacuum protector system (VPS) cleverly combines the traction and vacuum technology. It works on the same principles, i.e. by applying gentle stretching over time to enhance the penis (length and girth).
Like with the other stretching and vacuum devices, this prolonged stretching may also help straightening the penis curvature and therefore benefit men with Peyronie's disease.
It may also help with erectile dysfunction, which is common among Peyronie's patients.
PHALLOSAN® forte is the only patented orthopedic belt system with this vacuum protector technology so this article is based on how Phallosan works for men with Peyronie's disease. Focusing on the main benefits, potential health risk associated with use and scientific support for those claims.
What Is Vacuum Protector System?
The vacuum protector works on the same principles as the other stretching devices, i.e. by applying gentle stretching over time to enhance the penis (length and girth). It combines the traction and vacuum technology and as such is an interesting addition to the stretching device category.
The penis is inserted into the device and the air is sucked out (like vacuum pump). However, this micro vacuum is maintained by locking the vacuum protector, providing gentle traction while wearing the device (like traction device).
Phallosan offers less stretching than traditional stretching device but more prolonged stretching than using vacuum pump, i.e. meets in the middle sort of.
The special vacuum action and the permanent gentle stretching stimulate the formation of new cells over the entire penis.
Orthopedic belt is used to secure the device in place so you can wear it discreetly for prolonged periods. The more you use the vacuum protector system, the better success you can expect (same as with traction device).
How To Use Phallosan For Peyronie's Disease
Using the vacuum protector is the same for men with Peyronie's as for other users. Protection cap (vacuum condom) is put over the penis glans. The penis is then inserted into a suction bell and the suction pump activated.
The air is sucked out, creating micro vacuum that is maintained by locking the vacuum protector. Suction pressure is applied evenly over the whole penis, including the penis glans.
Finally, the orthopedic belt over the hip is used to secure the device firmly in place. It is recommended to change the direction of the pull every two days.
Phallosan should be worn for minimum 6-8 hours every day for minimum 6 months for you to achieve permanent results.
It can be used for up to 12 hours a day with brief pauses but do stop the use immediately if you experience any pain.
Phallosan can be used safely while sleeping (unlike traction device). Natural erections usually occur few times at night but the vacuum condom will stretch to accommodate them.

What Are The Benefits Of Vacuum Protector System?
Phallosan is non-invasive and non-surgical device. It is manufactured according to the medical requirements of the European health authorities.
It is easy and safe to use and user satisfaction tends to be high. Results tend to be permanent after prolonged use of the device (6 months or more).
It is commonly reported to be comfortable to wear and not noticeable when wearing it. You can wear it confidently outside the privacy of your own home.
However, if you do not like wearing it in public for some reason then you can wear it while you sleep. According to the manufacturer, it is perfectly safe to use Phallosan while sleeping.
It is in similar price range as other stretching devices, making it one of the cheaper Peyronie's treatment options available.
What Are The Downsides Of Vacuum Protector System?
The main downside is the time and commitment required from the user. For permanent results, you need to wear the device daily for minimum 6-8 hours for over 6 months. The more you use Phallosan, the better result you can expect.
However, this is hardly a downside, since all Peyronie's treatments require commitment and take months.
What Are The Potential Side Effects?
Vacuum protector system is perfectly safe to use if you follow the instructions carefully (like with any medical device). You should never use it for longer than recommended or maximum 12 hours (with short breaks in between).
You should not use Phallosan if you have infection or open wound on your penis. Nor should you use while sleeping if you have used any substances that may affect your natural sensitivity to pain, like alcohol, drugs, painkillers, sleeping pills, sedatives, etc.
Does The Use Of Phallosan Involve Any Health Risk?
There is a risk of thrombosis (blood clot) in the penis if the vacuum protector system is used for longer than recommended so never use it for more than 12 hours (with short breaks in between).
Does Phallosan Work For Men With Peyronie's Disease?
The main purpose of Phallosan is to increase the penis length and girth. However, Phallosan works on the same principles as the other stretching devices and as such may benefit men with Peyronie's disease as well.
There are number of unofficial reports that Phallosan has reduced penis curvature and increased penile length in men with Peyronie's disease. It can also help men with erection quality and erectile dysfunction, both common among Peyronie's patients.
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.
He used to use traditional traction devices but has found newer devises that apply vacuum to the glans (like Phallosan) to allow more prolonged wear as his patients find them more comfortable to wear.
Scientific Support For Vacuum Protector System As Peyronie's Treatment
There are some scientific studies about the use of Phallosan but their focus has been on penis enhancement, not on how it works for Peyronie's patients.
This Study included 24 men and all experienced growth in both penis length and girth. Many also reported enhanced penis sensitivity, harder and longer lasting erections. Impressively over 90% of the patients were satisfied with Phallosan after using it for 6 months.
The study included one Peyronie's patient and he reported reduced curvature from 60 to 40 degrees within three months.
This is encouraging but by no means sufficient sample. Further studies are needed, i.e. on the effect on the Peyronie's curvature.
The following prospective study on the effects of a penile stretching system (Phallosan) for penile augmentation in patients with normal sized penises concluded that:
"Continuous use of a stretching device can produce penile length augmentation after 6 months. Measurements under "stretched" conditions coincide with subjective results. Further trials in patients with penile deformities (Peyronie's disease) should be accomplished" (J. Sex Med 2006 )
My Personal Experience And Opinion Of Phallosan
I have not used vacuum protector system for my Peyronie's disease (I used traditional traction device). I though like this addition to the other stretching devices.
I sincerely believe that stretching devices can benefit most men with Peyronie's disease, not least those in the early stages with mild or moderate penis curvature
Phallosan is one more option for those men. Which stretching device is most suitable may be down to personal preference. I can imagine that Phallosan may appeal strongly to the following Peyronie's patients:
- Those that for some reason do not like wearing stretching device outside the privacy of their home (can use Phallosan while sleeping)
- Those that would like to improve their erection quality as well as work on the penile curvature
- Those suffering from erectile dysfunction and penile curvature and prefer traction device (for the curvature) but are currently using vacuum pumps because of the erectile benefits
In my Phallosan Forte Review I explore the pros and cons of the Phallosan vacuum protector system in more detail.
