Uroshock can be performed sitting, standing, or laying down. Unlike other acoustic wave machines Uroshock is nearly silent. It does not create jarring sounds that will frighten other people at home.
We recommend that a water-soluble lubricant be applied to the penis prior to use. This will help to facilitate the Uroshock tip gently gliding over the surface of the penis, and acts as coupling agent to facilitate transmission of the shock wave.
Most patients will find the treatment to be pleasant and calming. For those that have heightened sensitivity, 5% Lidocaine jelly (which does not require a prescription) is readily available at drug stores. We also make both the water-soluble lubricant and Lidocaine jelly available on our website.
The device should be fully charged prior to use. With our premium battery that is included in each unit, each charge will last for multiple applications. The device is easily powered on by depressing the button at the bottom of the unit. Pressing the button a second and third time will sequentially increase the frequency.
The shock wave tip is gently and sequentially stroked over the top 2/3 of the penis. The bottom of the penis is not to be treated, since this could injure the urethra. Similarly, the glans penis (head) is not treated. The two corpora cavernosa, or corporal bodies are largely responsible for erections. These reside in the top 2/3 of the penis. If one were to pull his penis straight up, the part of the penis that is closest to the body is the dorsum. This is the part of the penis that should be treated. The part of the penis which is furthest from the abdomen is the ventral aspect, which should not be treated.
Following treatment there are no particular restrictions, other than to not engage in sexual activity the day of the treatment. Patients who are taking pde5-inhibitors may continue this practice. Patients may not receive maximum benefit from the Uroshock treatments for 3 months or longer, and it would not be unusual for patients to continue to require medications particularly during the early weeks of treatment. Similarly, patients may continue to use vacuum erection devices, and injections, although not on the same day as treatment.
Not all patients will be able to discontinue the use of medications, injections, or vacuum devices. Some patients may notice that their erections are better than they were previously, but they may still need additional support.
Uroshock knows that erectile dysfunction is a sensitive issue, and we want everyone who purchases any of our products to get the best possible outcome. We stand by our products. Please contact us with any concerns or questions during normal office hours.
