Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to use a minimally invasive erectile device for patients suffering from erectile dysfunction.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Erectile Dysfunction Device: Double-S Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The purpose of the study is to use a minimally invasive erectile device support to provide to patients suffering from erectile dysfunction the possibility to achieve satisfactory penetrating intercourse.

The goal of this is to help men who have issues with erectile function (e.g.after radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer, vascular or metabolic erectile dysfunction non-responsive to phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor medications, etc.) to have medication-free mechanical support for their penis in order to obtain sexual penetration satisfactorily.
