Viberect X3, a
vibratory stimulation system for the penis is free from any side effects and
even approved by US FDA. The device is highly effective in patients having
erectile dysfunction, unable to have an erection, suffering from a spinal cord
injury, have retarded orgasms and anorgasmia. In addition, it can be used to
achieve sexual gratification in selected group of patients.
Viberect X3 vibrates at a high frequency and at specific
amplitude facilitating ejaculation. The system is composed of dual pads,
providing stimulating effect on both dorsal and ventral surface of the penis
giving greater success rate. The ejaculation obtained by using this device can
also be used for sample preparation for intrauterine insemination (IUI) as well
as for vitro fertilization (IVF).
The ejaculation can be
achieved by a single vibratory focus in most men. However, a considerable
number of men require 2 foci, both on the dorsum and frenulum of the penis, for
inducing ejaculation. In such cases, using two vibrators concurrently may pose
a challenge. Viberect is an innovative and easy-to-use device allowing
stimulation of both the surfaces of penis at the same time, thus yielding
Clinical studies have
shown safety and efficacy in patients with erectile dysfunction, retarded
orgasm and those suffering from spinal cord injuries.
significantly affect sexual life. To help in this regard, Viberect, a newly
approved device has proved useful. A survey conducted in 10 patients with
erectile dysfunction (ED) showed that Viberect use was safe, convenient, well
tolerated and the preferred mode of treatment. Before use of the device at
home, these patients were instructed for optimal use of Viberect through unique
repetitive reflex teaching program. Level of patient satisfaction was then
assessed by using Erectile Dysfunction Inventory of Treatment Satisfaction
(EDITS) and Treatment Satisfaction Scale (TSS). 90% patients were satisfied
with Viberect treatment (EDITS Index >50; Mean EDITS index score was 77).
Mean TSS score was exponentially raised as well from 41.8 to 61.8. No adverse
events or complaints were reported by these patients and indicated its further
use and recommendation to others.
Spinal cord injuries
(SCI) can lead to male
. In such cases, penile vibratory stimulation is often
recommended as first line of treatment. A prospective study performed using
Viberect-X3 on 30 anejaculatory men with SCI with injury level of T10 and
rostral, showed ejaculatory success rate of 77% (23/30) with no adverse events
and malfunctions of the device. The study concluded that the device is safe and
effective for inducing ejaculation in men with SCI.
Retarded orgasm is another condition that can lead to
difficulty in achieving orgasm and ejaculation and is one of the most stubborn
forms of male sexual dysfunction. At present, there is no evidence based
treatments that can help to improve this condition. In a study conducted on 36
patients having complete inability to achieve an orgasm during sexual relations
in previous 3 months, were instructed to use the penile vibratory stimulation.
The responses were then assessed at baseline, 3 months and 6 months. The
restoration of orgasm was achieved in 72% of the cases and orgasm during sexual
relations reportedly occurred 62% of the time. This kind of orgasm gain
persisted till 6 months. The study concluded by stating that penile vibratory
stimulation is an effective means for treating retarded orgasm and the device
should be coupled with cognitive-behavioral sex therapy techniques for
achieving maximum effectiveness and satisfaction.
In men without ED, all
nerves, muscles and vessels responsible for erection are well synchronised and
work in harmony for achieving optimal ejaculation. However, in people with
erectile dysfunction this synchronisation doesn't work well and this is where
Viberect plays a critical role and imitates rapid and repetitive manual or
vaginal penis stimulation, an important aspect of sexual behavior in humans and
higher mammals. Concurrent vibratory stimulation of both penis surfaces at
higher frequency (70-110 hertz) for 7-10 minutes can provide erection of penis
A study conducted in 68
patients with ED evaluated penile blood flow parameters induced by Viberect as
compared to intracavernosal injection (ICI) of prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) using
color duplex Doppler ultrasound
technology. The Viberect stimulation was performed at frequency of 70 hertz at
an amplitude of 2mm for 6 minutes, which was then followed by immediate
evaluation by CDDU according to Doppler ultrasound protocol. Once flaccidity
was obtained, ICI using 7-15 mcg PEG1 was administered and CDDU repeated.
Increased peak systolic velocity (90% tumescence; 60-70% rigidity) as compared
to ICI was seen in 29 patients. 17 patients showed 80% tumescence and 30-40%
rigidity with Viberect as compared to ICI. There were only 7 patients that
showed poor erection with Viberect. No complaints of pain, priapism or adverse
effects were seen on use of Viberect. The study thus concluded stating that
Viberect provides similar blood flow and erection responses as seen by ICI in
patients undergoing CDDU evaluation and the device is safe, convenient and
well-tolerated modality for CDDU.
Viberect can also be
used safely and successfully as a part of daily erection recovery process in
men that have undergone treatment for prostate cancer (including prostatectomy,
hormone and brachytherapy). The device can be used by most men as soon as
surgery is over or even one month prior.
Benefits of using
Viberect are collective and not immediate. It takes only 30 seconds for a nerve
to get damaged; however its recovery could take many months. Concurrent
stimulation of both sides of penis is essential for optimum response. The
science behind Viberect and Vibratory Stimulation Treatment erection of penis
is nerve reflex. Millions of nerve receptors that line penis surface, if
stimulated, trigger the spinal cord and brain to start a process that can lead
to penile erection, firmness and ejaculation. At a specific frequency and
amplitude, Viberect can safely stimulate these centres. With the help of gentle
and painless vibrations this device can initiate blood flow in the penis and
stimulate muscles that can keep it longer and thereby making it more rigid.
indicated by FDA is a Class II medical device for home and clinical use, for
provoking penile erection in men having erectile dysfunction and also for those
men who suffer from spinal cord injury and ejaculation therefore does not take
place. The device has been claimed to be safe and easy to use.
