2019 Penile Traction Device: Who is the Inventor?
NEW YORK, May 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Andromedical certifies that Dr. Eduardo Gomez de Diego is the inventor and the owner of the patents of the penile traction device, which is a medical device to change the morphology of the penis. Clinical studies confirm the efficacy of this device to treat the penile curvature of Peyronie's disease. Now the American Urology Association (AUA) and the Canadian Urology Association (CUA) have recommended to treat it with the penile traction device as a remodeling technique. More information is at www.andromedical.com.
In 1996, Dr. Eduardo Gomez de Diego, in his men's health clinic, found that a third of patients asked for a solution for the morphology of their penis. After investigating different methods applied in medicine, such as bone traction or skin development, he found a method based on traction to change the morphology of the penis and created the first penile traction device.
Clinical studies continued in prestigious hospitals and an important application was discovered: the remodeling technique based on the penile traction therapy (PTT), using an adapted traction device named ANDROPEYRONIE, reduces the penile curvature by 60% in Peyronie's disease. It is a user-friendly device, comfortable and FDA approved (www.andropeyronie.com).
Dr. Gómez de Diego is aware of the need to apply a light traction of 1,500 gr. for several hours a day to get the best results. The device is fixed onto the penis easily and it can be worn while walking, sitting, etc. He distrusts other penile extenders, which do not use medical materials (because they can cause allergies), nor do they put ideal traction of 1,500 gr. (because more traction can damage the tissues of the penis) or do not recommend the 8 hours of proper use per day (because with few hours of use the results are very few).
According to his words: "All urologists around the world are very satisfied with ANDROPEYRONIE. It is important not to forget that the penile traction device is a medical product and it is important for patients to be advised by their doctor." (www.andromedical.com).
