New technologies or other solutions?

Postby Skier123 » Fri Jan 24, 2020 5:16 pm

Hey guys,

I just thought I would try a thread to see what everyone is hearing and reading about new ED solutions in development. Maybe it would help some of the brothers in their decision making ...

While I was researching implant surgeons I talked with some of the Docs at University of Wisconsin. I guess one of them is actively working on an electromechanical implant ... i.e. one that could pump itself up somehow.

I have no idea how close or far they are from getting such a thing to work. But hearing about this research actually helped me make my decision to get an implant ... in my opinion it is way more likely that the smart people will come up with a cool electromechanical implant long befor they ever figure out how to get stem cells or some such thing to restore someones' natural erection. (Any thoughts or discussion on that?)

So here's hoping they get that thing working before my first implant wears out ... damn - that would sure be one hell of a revision :)

Nothing really on the FDA's desk as far as I know. Implant-wise it's pretty straightforward technology and as far as I can tell the basic idea has gone relatively unchanged since the 70's.

Other than a malleable type implant that becomes rigid or flexible by way its memory metal in the rods. A certain heat source causes the rods to stiffen and I'm not sure what causes them to soften again (time, or another different stimulus?)

A few months ago I signed up for a survey here on FrankTalk.org conducted by a third party for input directly for Boston Scientific (AMS). The survey focused upon my experience and opinion of the manually operated bulb pump versus a new electronic pump device that is currently in development and will soon be in human trials. It’ll be battery operated and will electrically inflate and deflate the cylinders by use of an internally installed pump operated by either a remote device, or an application installed on your cellphone. The battery pack is engineered to be replaced about once every three to five years, and is installed subcutaneously for in-office replacement by your doctor. My only concern about the battery replacement is the risk of infection. I’m relatively certain that most of us would love this smooth transition from a flaccid penis to hard cock with a simple push of one external button. It’s allegedly slated to be on the market sometime in 2022. I’m just repeating what the surveyor told me, but I have since seen several posts on the internet about an electronic pump currently in development.

Tallmark,

I wonder if we are hearing about the same project from two different sources? Here's hoping so! Damn, what a fun toy that would be (and 2022 isn't all that far away.) Jusy have to hope they design that remote to work on a different frequency than the neighbor's garage door opener :lol:

This is to share my experience in response to postings about new technologies, etc. My urologist injected my penis with the Wharton's jelly portion of stem cells from an umbilical cord 4 months ago to revascularize penile tissue and veins. He also started me on a series of 6 TRT/MTS Shockwave treatments. After one month, I had a baseline ultrasound done by another urologist at my request. This was repeated 3 months later and confirmed that no revacularization has taken place. I'm out $5,500, as well as hope in regaining function short of implantation. A fool may soon be parted from his money but a desperate fool will be parted from his money much sooner. Beware!

Wouldn't it make much more sense to have wireless charging by induction than, swapping batteries?
Also I have read about next generation pacemakers that have a tiny piezoelectric generator that uses heartbeat to recharge itself. Similar think can be installed in scrotum and use your hands to recharge, rather than pump.

I discussed the development of a battery operated pump with Dr. Jesse Mills at UCLA yesterday. He was very aware of the development but believes it will be about 4 years before it clears the FDA and becomes available on the market. He does not think that a manual pump will be able to be "swapped out" for a battery operated pump...it will require removal and replacement of the cylinders as well.

Putting radioactive waste into a battery-like device (I assume it will be well-shielded) so there would be no recharging necessary?

Putting that aside:

I wonder what the power output could be? Would the number of pump-up (having sex a couple times a day) cycles be limited? That is, what would be the wattage, how quickly could the pump-up be done, how often and how quickly after done with one cycle could another cycle begin?

I am thinking that if the device had insufficient power to do an inflation in a reasonable length of time, it could trickle charge a battery that would be able to respond quicker - but then there would be a latency (refractory?) period before a new inflation could proceed.

Rather than having an external controller, I would much rather have a button installed somewhere (scrotum, or midriff perhaps) that could be accessed to initiate erection and deflation. In that way a "natural" erection could be emulated but the potential for loss of the controller device eliminated.
