Linear focused shockwave therapy for the treatment of ED

Using shockwaves to treat ED

Worldwide more than 160 million of men suffer from ED.

German data: 19% of men are affected*
2%   (aged 30 – 39 years)
10%  (aged 40 – 49 years)
16%  (aged 50 – 59 years)
34%  (aged 60 – 69 years)
53%  (aged 70 – 79 years)

We have developed a solution. It is innovative and nothing short of groundbreaking!

The continued development of the piezo shockwave technology along with the use of a therapy source with an extended linear therapy focus has led to a decisive breakthrough in the search for ways of using shockwaves to treat vascular erectile dysfunction. Used in combination with the new, optimized therapy concept LSTC-ED, the application technique and therapy outcomes have improved significantly.

Erectile Function

Healthy blood vessels matter!

Erection is the result of a complex synergy between blood vessels, the nervous system, hormones and muscles. During an erection there is increased blood flow to the penis, which in turn increases the pressure. Sufficient blood flow to the cavernous bodies plays an most important role in erectile function.

Arterial Factors in Erectile Function!

Reduced arterial inflow reduces venous compression, resulting in an insufficient erection. Arteriosclerosis is one of the most common causes of ED.

Risk factors

  • Chronic nicotine abuse
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood cholesterol levels
  • Chronic renal disease

LSTC-ED®

A unique therapy concept
Treatment of erectile dysfunction using linear focused piezo shockwaves.

The LSTC-ED technique is a quick and comprehensive treatment covering the entire cavernous bodies. The therapy source is placed at right angles to the cavernous bodies and moved longitudinally along the penis (the cavernous bodies) and the perineum (crura of the penis). This results in maximum, homogeneous transfer of energy; treatment is quick and lasts only a few minutes.

Treatment

Treatment is carried out on an outpatient basis without anesthesia. It is painless and only takes a few minutes.
The therapy head is positioned above the cavernous bodies and moved longitudinally along the penis.
Treatment should be administered once or twice a week; a full course of treatment is 4-6 sessions. There are no known side effects.

The Mechanism of Action!

Mechanical stimuli can influence many of the cellular functions of living tissue. Extracorporeal shockwaves – an established treatment in modern medicine for more than 30 years – function as mechanical stressors which trigger biochemical changes in living tissue.

ED-specific Effect:

  • Angiogenesis (vascularization)
  • Improved microcirculation
  • Relaxation of muscles

Credibility and evidence are important to us

A multicenter, placebo-controlled study of 75 patients found that treatment was successful in 81.3% of patients, as measured and defined by IIEF scores.
