Penis Enlargement Devices: How Yhey Work
The device category of penis enlargement has been the focus of more and more publicity recently, leading some to wonder if this is a new, untested idea. The truth is, the traction technique has its roots in ancient tribal customs, cultural and spiritual practices and even modern-day medical methods for rebuilding tissue in surgical patients. The idea has been around for centuries. What's new is the availability of safe, effective, medically developed devices for home use -- and now the idea behind them is well-tested and documented, with a long history of dramatic results.
Most people are familiar with some of the more extreme examples of traction, such as the use by African tribal peoples and Amazonian indigenous tribes of lip disks, ear disks or neck rings to stretch these body parts to almost unbelievable size or length. Think National Geographic or the Discovery channel: you've surely seen photos of the amazing enlargement capability of the human body.
Many native people have used traction to increase the size of the penis, too: the Sadhus holy men of India, Peruvian Cholomecs and Papua Indians of New Guinea who ritually employ penis stretching to lengths of up to 22 inches! There are numerous other cultural examples of this type of penis elongation.
Today, traction is the medical term for carefully calibrated, continuous pressure applied to help with healing after surgery, injury, trauma or burns. Simply put, it means stressing tissues by stretching, and then allowing the body to rebuild itself naturally.
Examples are mastectomy patients, who require expansion of the skin and muscle in the chest prior to reconstructive surgery; penis enlargement surgery patients, who employ traction to help heal, strengthen and straighten the penis; and burn patients, who can create their own skin grafts by means of traction which "stretches" or enlarges an area of tissue prior to transplant.
The stretching opens up spaces between cells, and triggers a growth or healing response in the body, in which adjacent cells begin to divide and fill in the space. With continued use, the growth can number in the millions of new cells, significantly adding size and tissue to the area.
Penis Enlargement Devices
That, essentially, is the idea behind penis enlargement devices. In one popular and well-documented device -- designed by a urologist and created by a medical company in Denmark -- traction is applied by means of adjustable, calibrated bars between an anatomically curved base that fits comfortably at the root of the penis, and a surgical-grade band that slips of the glans (head) of the penis.
As the penis lengthens, the traction and distance can be adjusted. This device is meant to be discreetly worn under the clothes and/or during sleep. Marketed under the name ProExtender, the device can be obtained from your medical practitioner or online.
Medical studies and many medical applications of the ProExtender show that real, permanent growth can occur in both length and girth, measurable in inches. This device is far from being a "quick fix," however; the device must be used properly and over a period of time to give the body ample opportunity to grow and build new tissue.
