|Official Title:||Phase 1 Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of Using Energy Specific Far Infrared Radiation Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction.|
- The primary end point is to determine the therapeutic effects of far infrared radiation on erectile dysfunction. [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- The effect of far infrared radiation on other male conditions like prostate cancer [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||August 2007|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||May 2009|
|Primary Completion Date:||February 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Radiation: Far Infrared Radiation
Far Infrared Radiation (5μm to 20μm wavelength) for 30 to 40 minutes each session.
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.
