Arms Assigned Interventions
1 Radiation: Far Infrared Radiation
Far Infrared Radiation (5μm to 20μm wavelength) for 30 to 40 minutes each session.

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.
