Battery and Manual Vacuum Erection Devices
Vacuum Erection Devices generally fall into two categories: battery operated and manually operated. There is some cost difference, so it’s only natural to ask what the difference is between the two products. Battery powered ED Pumps are ideal for people who have arthritis or dexterity problems. They also work well for people who want to achieve erection slowly. The batteries in the vacuum erection devices will need to be replaced from time to time, but typically last a long time.
Manual erection devices come in one-handed and two-handed models. There is really no difference in the Manual erection devices may be better suited for those more recently diagnosed with erectile dysfunction. These devices allow the user to determine their own comfortable pace. They also allow for a quicker erection, which some men find preferable.
It is important to note that insurance companies vary in reimbursement for vacuum erection devices. Check with your insurance company to see if they offer reimbursement.
