What is a Penis Extender?
Penis extenders are also known as penile traction devices. It is important to know that a genuine medical grade penis extender is not the same as a penis stretcher. A penis extender is worn on the penis and applies a very specific amount of tension to the penis to promote cell division and cytokinesis within the penis and is therefore considered a penis enlarger . In other words this means a very precise amount of traction is used to literally create new penis growth. The optimal operating tension for a penile traction device is between 900 to 1500 grams. Applying tension to the penis beyond this range has shown in scientific studies to retard and slow growth. It is believed the tissues and ligaments within the penis become over-stressed to the point where they need to adapt in a different way to growing, they need to strengthen instead.
An similar analogy could be used when a gymnast or athlete lifts relatively light weights for endurance and explosive performance. The muscles can still remain very flexible. However, if weight lifting is done with the intention of over-stressing the muscles to build mass, the muscles will not be as flexible because the body has been stressed to a point where it’s main priority is to become stronger to deal with the stress.
Optimal Tension of a Penile Traction Device:
It is very important that the right amount of tension is used when using a penis extender. As explained above if too much tension is used, slow penis growth can occur as well as other unwanted side effects such a penile injuries and using can be far too uncomfortable to gain any penis enhancement results. We’ll expand on this further down, under the penis stretcher injuries section.
The First Penis Extender
The first and original penile traction device was developed by a medical company in Denmark in 1994, the brand name is Jes Extender. One year later another a medical company in Spain released a very similar medical penile traction device. It is unknown whether this was a pure coincidence or if there was previous knowledge of the first penis extender design. To this day, these two medical grade penis extenders are the only devices that have been able to obtain Australian TGA registration. Jes Extender has been granted registration for the main purpose of penis enlargement making it a genuine penis enlarger. The second traction device has been granted registration for the main intended purpose of Peyronie’s disease treatment. Both penis extenders have undergone various studies and have been medically documented for the purpose of penile traction therapy (PTT).
What is Penile Traction Therapy?
Penile Traction Therapy, abbreviated PTT, is the medical terminology used to describe using a medical grade penis extender for the purpose of a specific outcome. Several penile traction therapy studies have been done over the last decade and have shown promising results in many areas of male sexual health. Probably the most notable finding of using a penis extender is for the purpose of penis enlargement. The second most notable result of penile traction therapy would be the proven efficacy of penis curvature correction. In it’s more severe form, penile curvature can be diagnosed as a medical condition described as Peyronie’s disease.
Penile Traction Devices
A genuine penile traction device has to be built to very specific medical standards. Before being sold to the public, a medical grade penile traction device has to pass the same strict quality standards as any true medical grade product. Part of those quality standards involve trialing the device with real patients in order to gain feedback about how efficient the product performed, and if there were any health issues that arose during testing or after the trial. That is why a real medical grade traction device has studies and medical documentation to support it. As stated above, there are only two medical grade traction devices in the world that have been properly designed to strict specifications and have undergone proper testing and approval. This process is mandatory of all medical products capable of changing or influencing the natural biology of the human body.
Parts of a Traction Device
The parts of a properly manufactured and tested medical penile traction device must be safe for prolonged human skin contact. A spring loaded device is worn on the penis with the opposite ends pushing away from each other. A base ring will sit against the pubic region and around the penis while the other end will secure the penis glans with a penis extender noose or comfort strap. The quality of the components must be of a very high standard to ensure it will not break or injure the user. Further, the tension levels must match that used in the clinical trial testing (assuming the traction device was properly trialed and tested). The important reason for ensuring correct tension levels are used is to make sure the product will deliver reliable and repeatable results, whether it’s to be used as a penis enlarger or for penile curvature reasons. Specific factors and specifications are an integral part of why genuine medical products get granted approval. If those specifications change the product is no longer the same. To summarise, if a different level of tension or specification is introduced for an already approved product, a whole new set of testing and trials would have to take place to show the safety and efficacy of that design change.
Not All Penis Extenders Are Made Equal
Due to the above explanation, it is easy to see why many sellers and companies get caught out when an observant customer asks for some form of proof as to their products performance or safety claims. There is a lot of misinformation from U.S companies who sell unapproved penis extenders. The so called penile traction devices are really nothing more than a low quality penis stretcher. They use dangerous and untested amounts of tension so they can make misleading claims such as “the most powerful” and “highest tension”. All the while, they are doing nothing but providing their customers with products that are downright unsafe or can not be used effectively. All that is required to check the honesty of these U.S companies, is to simply ask for testing documentation to support the claims being made. Government issued registration certificates such as those issued by the Australian TGA or U.S FDA show that a product has proven itself with a certain level of safety and performance. Unapproved products usually make many absurd claims because they add disclaimers to the bottom of their advertising effectively saying “these statements have not been evaluated” or in other words, have not been proven. Those disclaimers should speak volumes to any keen observer.
What these untrustworthy sellers and companies are doing is identical to the following scenario. Imagine something that requires a Doctor’s approval such as a medication of some type. It has to go through medical testing and approval just like a genuine penile traction device does. Now consider that a dishonest company decides to make a similar looking, but low quality imitation made on the black or grey market. However, they decide to double the medically approved dose to a very risk level that can produce side effects. Unfortunately, safety guidelines are not of any concern to these suppliers. They are only interested in advertising that their product is “better” because it’s “more powerful”. Unsuspecting consumers come in droves and believe the hype. All the while, they are putting their own health at risk because they did not do any research. This sort of deception has been going on in the penile traction industry for at least a decade. If any company, brand or website states their products are of medical grade it is very important to ask for proof. Any consumer buying medical grade products online should ask for proof that the product is certified, registered or approved. Failure to do this simple research when buying a penis extender has resulted in many men experiencing penile injuries and other unwanted side effects.
Penis Stretcher Injuries
The difference between a genuine medical grade penis extender (also known as a penile traction device) and a simple penis stretcher should hopefully be clear by now. Because penis stretchers are not genuinely approved and use dangerous amounts of tension, it greatly increases the risks of penis injuries and side effects, some of them quite extreme. A penis stretcher is certainly not the same as a genuine penile traction device or penis enlarger. One of the most well known issues with men who learn about penile traction to enlarge the penis, is they want results almost immediately. The cocktail of this eagerness and the dangerous tension levels of an imitation penis extender can be disastrous. For a general idea, a genuine penile traction device will exert a maximum force of 1500 grams on the penis. New users often times have difficulty reaching the minimum traction level of 900 grams within the first month of use.
The unsafe penis stretchers available online get sold with untested tension levels of 2800 grams and some even beyond that. So what does a new and eager man that wants results overnight do? He experiments and tries to reach the maximum tension level, of course. Believe it or not some men actually do succeed and decide to start in the deep end. For a new penile traction user to use at levels above 1200 grams is next to torture. The male penis is a very fragile and sensitive organ and it’s extremely important to start and progress slowly.
When the penis is injured because someone has purchased an imitation penile extender (or as we describe them, a penis stretcher), the penile tissues must heal. At times, and depending on the severity of the penis injury, slight scar tissue can be left after the healing process is complete. If this injury continues repeatedly, the scar tissue can compound and the injured site may form what is known as plaque. If enough plaque builds up due to a severe penile injury or from repeated smaller injuries, the result can be curvature of the penis. In some extreme cases, these injuries can result in the medical diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease. This condition gets diagnosed when penis curvature reaches 30 degrees or more. It is quite paradoxical that genuine penis extenders used in penile traction therapy can actually assist in penile curvature reduction. However, if a man already has this condition and he purchases an imitation penis stretcher instead of a proper penile traction device, he may find his condition gets worse. Alternatively, he may use the product for many months and see no improvement at all because the quality and proper tension levels of a true penis extender have not been achieved.
To summarise the above points, a true penis extender is always designed, manufactured and tested by a genuine medical company. Because they are legitimate medical grade penile traction therapy devices they must adhere to strict Government manufacturing guidelines and specifications. Those specifications must be the same as when undergoing the initial clinical trials and approvals. Some examples of these Government approvals include Australian TGA registration or American FDA registration. However, it should be noted that the United States Food and Drug Administration do not require third party proof of the products they approve. The Australian TGA on the other hand, is much more strict and requires a very stringent approval process to take place before a medical grade product gains Australian TGA listing or registration.
