How a technology company is changing how men think about their sexual health

Guys, there’s something important that they probably did not tell you in sex ed. Healthy erections require strong blood flow. Unfortunately, the blood flow to the penis begins to decrease around 20 years, getting worse with age.

Changing the way men think about their sexual health

The natural decline in blood flow as men age is the leading cause of ED and other performance problems. This is a problem most men will encounter during their lifetime – affecting 40% of men after 40 years and 70% of men after 70 years (Cleveland Clinic).

Pills and injections come up short

Invented in the 80s and 90s, pills and injections for ED only cover the symptoms of poor blood flow by temporarily relaxing vessels and allowing blood to flow more easily.

Like a patch, they mask the problem without solving the underlying problem. What’s worse, many men taking medications like Viagra report that it stops working within a few years (case study) – provided that they can tolerate the side effects. Plus, remembering to take a pill in time for a romantic evening can be a buzzkill.

Low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy

Over the past decade has more than 40 clinical trials and reports has shown that there is a solution to this problem – a superior alternative to a lifetime of pills or injections for most men.

Low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (Li-ESWT), sometimes marketed as “shockwave therapy” or “acoustic wave therapy”, uses powerful, targeted sound waves to safely dissolve plaque in existing vessels and encourage the growth of new vessels in support of healthy tissue .

Can be used with other help solutions

Because there are zero side effects, men can implement Li-ESWT while using pills or other solutions, with zero downtime. However, most men who complete the full treatment protocol (which takes about 120 days) no longer need pills or injections to perform as they did in their teens in the bedroom.

You do not have to wait until you have a problem

Dr. Paul Thompson (Urologist & surgeon) is chief physician at Start medical, and a pioneer in the use of Li-ESWT to help men restore and maintain their sexual health. When asked for a comment, he shared:

“One of the most exciting aspects of Li-ESWT is that men can perform this therapy long before they have problems. Just like changing the oil in a car, keeping your vessels free of plaque and ensuring your tissues have adequate blood flow can mean you never experience ED or other performance problems caused by the natural drop in blood flow that occurs when men age. It’s a game changer that should be a part of every man’s health regime. ”

Phoenix: Revolutionizing male sexual health

Dr. Thompson has been using Li-ESWT in his clinic for more than a decade. He carefully developed protocols to help men maintain their performance, correct the major cause of ED, and manage the symptoms of Peyronie’s disease.

Unfortunately, many men simply cannot afford to travel to a clinic for treatment. The average treatment cost at a clinic is $ 500, and most men would need at least 12 treatments to experience the full benefits – adding up to thousands of dollars.

The second challenge is the hassle of planning multiple appointments and travel for each one. It’s just not practical and many men can not afford to take time off work for several months.

The world’s first home clinical Li-ESWT device in the home.

Enter The Phoenix. Dr. Thompson has partnered with Start medical to develop the world’s first home-used Li-ESWT device. It is the only device on the market that can deliver the same treatments with clinical strength, from home without a prescription or a cumbersome conversation with a doctor.

To date, the multi-million-dollar startup has helped more than 20,000 men restore the blood flow they need for strong, healthy erections of all ages.

How does it work?

Phoenix generates the same shock waves (powerful sound waves) provided by the equipment used in clinics and doctors’ offices (see power plate comparison).

As you move the stainless steel treatment tip along the surface of the shaft, the shock waves are non-invasively transmitted through the skin deep into the tissue of the penis. This helps in two important ways:

  1. Plaque that has accumulated in existing vessels dissolves safely.
  2. Microtrauma of the tissue leads to angiogenesis: the growth of new blood vessels.

By removing plaque, blood flow is improved. The new blood vessels that are formed help introduce stem cells and other essential nutrients to support tissue repair.

How fast do men see results?

The full treatment protocol takes approximately 120 days. Some men report improvements early in the process, but the majority of men will need to consistently stick to the program (like exercising) to get the results they want.

Is it safe?

Phoenix has earned several patents around the world due to the innovative, secure way treatments are delivered. Smart guidance technology helps everyone, even those without medical training, safely place the device and deliver effective treatments – completing the same process that Dr. Thompson uses in his clinic.

There is a 36-hour lockout after each treatment that prevents overtreatment. Some guys think that the more often they perform treatments, the faster they will see amazing results. However, gains with Li-ESWT occur during the days between treatments, as the tissue has time to recover and maximize blood flow. For this reason, Dr. recommends Thompson to perform 2 treatments per week for 30 days followed by 30 days off.
