Will the Erec-Tech work for me if Viagra failed?
There are several medical studies that prove that Erec-Tech vacuum therapy systems may work very well when other treatments have failed.

Will it make my penis larger?
It can, this is not something that we promise, but we know from feedback from our clients, that it often does. How much? It depends on the individual and the frequency of use.

How do I know if I have Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
If you are unable to attain or maintain an erection suitable for intercourse, you could have some form of Erectile Dysfunction (ED).

Why consider the Erec-Tech as a daily exercise?
It has recently been recognized that a prolonged erection problem will lead to shrinkage of the penile tissues and reduction in penile circulation (non-use atrophy). Daily use of the Erec-Tech vacuum therapy system may duplicate the benefits of nocturnal erections, reversing penile shrinkage, reconditioning the penile vascular system and promoting the return of good penile health.

There have been several Clinical Studies done by leading urologists that encourage this therapeutic and rehabilitative benefit of daily vacuum therapy exercise. Learn more about how Penile Rehabilitation can help.

The Erec-Tech may also be used to enhance other treatment options and may significantly improve your penile health.

Will this system work if I am taking Viagra?
some doctors recommend using the Erec-Tech in conjunction with Viagra and other medications.

How It Works

Is the Erec-Tech guaranteed?
For many men, the Erec-Tech vacuum therapy system will be the best solution for Erectile Dysfunction. It is safe, cost effective, and produces instant results. It comes with a lifetime guarantee on all major parts. If you order directly from Pos-T-Vac Medical, we also offer a 30-day return policy. These guarantees are further assurance that the Erec-Tech system will be the right choice for you!

How does the Erec-Tech Work?
As easy as 1-2-3:
     The Erec-Tech is positioned over the penis.
     The vacuum brings blood into the vascular network of the penis – filling the penis and causing it to become erect.
     The soft-gel tension ring is transferred from the penile cylinder to the base of the penis. The penis will stay erect until     the tension is removed.
-Pos-T-Vac Tension Systems will hold the erection fully firm for up to 30 minutes at a time, even after orgasm, and wil permit ejaculation escape in most cases.
-The erection will subside with removal of the Tension System.
-This process may be safely repeated again within a few minutes as often as required per day.

Does it really work?
YES! By using the Erec-Tech, you can form an erection suitable for intercourse and maintain an erection for up to 30 minutes at a time. Medical Studies show that vacuum therapy is over 98% successful.

Medical Concerns

Does my age have anything to do with my Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
Age alone does not cause Erectile Dysfunction (ED). The vascular system transfers blood throughout the body and may
have various reasons for not working the way it should, but age is not the cause.

What causes Erectile Dysfunction (ED/Impotence)?
There are many physical causes, listed are some of the main ones, per the publication “Impotence” by Dr. Stephen W. Leslie, M.D.

    - Vascular Disease 40%
          -Arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)
          -High blood pressure (arterial blockages)
          -Venous Leakage (excessive drainage of blood from the penis)
    - Diabetes Mellitus 30%
    - Impotence following radical surgery 13%
    - Spinal cord injury and other traumas 08%
    - Other Endocrine (Pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal gland) problems. 06%
    - Multiple sclerosis. 03%
