Erectile Dysfunction is a frustrating condition that commonly increases with age due to blood flow. Experts say this affects over 50 percent of men between the ages of 40 and 70. Unlike other current treatment options for ED, Linear Shockwave Therapy is unique in that it aims to restore the erectile mechanism to enable natural or spontaneous erections. This treatment stimulates the formation of new blood vessels and is 80 percent effective on mild to moderate ED. Major Advantages are:
- Non-invasive and anesthesia-free
- Short protocol and painless treatment
- Complete coverage of the treated area with dual applicators
- Comfortable for the seated patient
- No need to attend or assist the patient during treatment
Unfortunately, many providers now offer ED treatments using untested devices with inadequate energy levels that do not provide the same results as shockwave therapy. It’s easy to identify these procedures because they often have the term “wave” in their name, like:
- Acoustic wave
- Acoustic pressure wave
- Radial wave
That’s because providers usually use acoustic wave devices or radial pressure wave devices in these treatments. But, this is not the same as shockwave technology. The MoreNova device has an FDA Class 111 rating, which requires pre-market approval, clinical documentation proving its safety and effectiveness and can only be used by a medical professional in approved ways.
What sets shockwave therapy apart from wave treatments
It’s easy to confuse acoustic wave therapy with shockwave therapy because they both create sound waves. However, acoustic waves only travel 10 meters per second compared to the 1,500 meters per second seen with focused shockwaves. Acoustic wave therapy doesn’t come anywhere near breaking the sound barrier, which is required to trigger the neovascularization process at a cellular level.
Acoustic waves don’t have enough energy; they only create surface pressure, like a vibratory massage. That means they never penetrate the surface of your skin to reach the damaged tissue inside your penis, causing your ED symptoms. Instead, you experience redness and discomfort on the surface of your penis, with little to no change in your erections. It’s also why these treatments usually require numbing cream and anesthesia.
Linear shockwave treatments come with considerable research showing proven clinical results.
