Penis Pump

There are three main components that make up a majority of all penis pumps for sale on Vitality Medical. These components include the cylinder for which the penis is inserted into; the pump, which is either motorized or manual; and the tension band, a ring device that fastens around the penis to keep blood from exiting the erection.

At Vitality Medical, all penis pumps for sale are designed using vacuum technology. The basic physics behind these tools is simply pumping the air out of a cylinder, which the penis has been inserted into. This effectively creates a low pressure, so that the penis glands receive blood and an erection is achieved. However, the way that each brand operates may vary slightly with features that affect both comfort and convenience of use.

The Three Factors: Cylinder, Pump, and Tension Band

The cylinder is typically made of hardened plastic that is transparent and smooth. It will typically come in a standard size meant to compensate for most sizes, but alternate size cylinders are sometimes available through the manufacturer for those who sizing unique to most.

The pump attaches to the cylinder to remove the ambient air within the chamber. For convenience, a motorized unit can simply be powered on and have an adequate low pressure within the tube in seconds. However, some prefer the manual pump to get the perfect pressure and be able to stop the lowering pressure with better perceived accuracy (for motorized units, a quick-release mechanism is a good feature to look for if the user is concerned about injury).

Tension bands are used when the erection is achieved and are fastened onto the base of the penis. Most cylinders have a loading cone to slide the elastic ring onto the cylinder and a ring ejector to glide the penis ring gently onto the shaft of the penis. Tension bands are sometimes used alone if the patient can achieve an erection without pumping, yet needs assistance maintaining the hardness. The rings sometimes have loops on the outside to pull open and have one placed onto the penis without any other device.

A Note on Lubricant

With the three main devices in mind, one may want to make sure their comfort is ensured through the use of personal lubricant when it comes to purchasing a penis pump. With lubricant it will make several steps preparing the penis pump and the penis easier.

Lubricant will be needed to get that perfect seal between the penis and the cylinder.

The lubricant will allows sliding the tension band to the base of the penis easier. After the ring comes off the cylinder and onto the penis, the penis should be prepped with lubricant.

The applied lubricant will also assist in sex especially if there is any vaginal dryness with the partner.
