This is not a CIA facility
Will the market for this mouse outpace the one for vibrators?
If you experience impotence, instead of a little blue pill maybe you want to apply shockwaves to your privates instead.
Experiments now suggest directing shockwaves at penises can help treat erectile dysfunction.
"We can really reverse erectile problems with this," researcher Yoram Vardi, head of the neuro-urology department at Rambam LiveScience.in Haifa, Israel, told
"While patients with erectile dysfunction can function with Viagra or Cialis, this is not a cure - when they stop the medication, they cannot function," he added. "This is only a preliminary study, but here with shockwaves, we can do something biological for the problem - after treatments, these patients can function without the need for medication."
At each session, a device that resembles a computer mouse applied shockwaves at five different sites on their penises.
"These are very, very low energy," Vardi said. Each shockwave applied roughly 100 bar of pressure - some 20 times the air pressure in a bottle of champagne, but less than the pressure exerted by a woman in stiletto heels who weighs 132 lbs. (60 kg).
"This sort of energy is completely different from what you would get in a massage, although everyone can do what they want," Vardi said.
