Brief Summary:
A preliminary study to determine the possibility of using far infrared (FIR) radiation to treat impotency.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Erectile Dysfunction Radiation: Far Infrared Radiation Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Erectile dysfunction is characterized by the regular or repeated inability to obtain or maintain an erection. Erection depends on a complex interaction of psychological, neural, vascular and endocrine factors.

We are proposing a non-drug and a non-invasive radiation treatment for the enhancement of erection.
