At any point in time, it is estimated that 2.3 million men in the UK suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED), with up to half of men between the ages of 40 & 70 suffering from it to some degree.
About 70% of this is due to medical reasons such as cardiovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease and / or diabetes. This is known as vascular erectile dysfunction, and is caused by blocked blood vessels which prevent blood flowing properly into the penis which reduces the hardness of erections.
As there are medical reasons for this, it means that something can be done about it.

ED1000 is a curative treatment for erectile dysfunction using LI-ESWT technology. The benefits of this treatment are:
- It allows men to return to a spontaneous and natural sex life
- It reduces or completely removes the need to “pre-prepare” for sex by taking drugs such as "Viagra"
- Gives hope to chronic sufferers of ED without the need for injections or implants
- Is pain free
- Has no reported side effects
- Treats the causes of Eredctile Dysfunction (ED) rather than the symptoms
- Requires no surgical procedures, and no anaesthetic or sedation
- It is clinically proven
Drugs therapy such as "Viagra" & "Cialis", penile injections, or pellets require planning ahead of time, and apart from any potential side effects, they treat the symptoms rather than the causes. They effectively cause the blood vessels in the penis to temporarily dilate allowing blood to flow into the penis causing an erection.
Some groups of patients such as those with a cardiovascular risk may be unsuitable for this type of treatment. There are also potential side effects such as impaired vision, hot flushes, back ache, scar tissue (in the case of injections), and sustained erections which can cause lasting damage.
Vacuum pumps are placed over the penis and cause blood to rush into it at which point a ring is placed over the penis to keep the blood there. This does not always give a satisfactory solution, it is not spontaneous, and can cause bruising. It is however a relatively cheap option.
Implants require a surgical procedure under general anaesthetic. Types of implants vary and can either use an integrated pump for the patient to gain an erection, or they can be permanently semi rigid. Both options involve surgery and all the potential risks involved, and the inflatable implants may require to be replaced at a later date.
Implants are normally used in the event of failure of other options.
