A vacuum pump device is an external pump with a band on it that a man with erectile dysfunction can use to get and maintain an erection.
The Vacuum pump device consists of an acrylic cylinder with a pump that may be attached directly to the end of the penis. A constriction ring or band is placed on the cylinder at the other end, which is applied to the body. The cylinder and pump are used to create a vacuum to help the penis become erect; the band or constriction ring is used to help maintain the erection. It is also useful for penile enlargement & correcting the bent penis.
To use a vacuum pump device:
Intercourse can be attempted with the constriction band in place to help maintain the erection. The band can be left on safely for up to 30 minutes to allow for successful intercourse.
There is a vacuum release valve, which can be used, once the pressure is too much or there is pain in the penis.
