The vibrations in erectile dysfunctions
NEW publication of Dr. Calabrò - IRCCS Bonino Pulejo Neurolesi Center on vibrations in erectile dysfunctions
The Journal of Clinical Medicine, a Swiss journal specializing in the open access publication of the latest academic research, has published the latest work by the Neurolesi Center team Bonino Pulejo (Messina) led by Dr. Calabrò, our testimonial for Vibra 3.0 .
The work focuses on assessing and understanding how selective focal vibrations can impact erectile dysfunction in patients with incomplete spinal cord injuries.
It has been observed that following 3 weekly sessions of 30 minutes for 5 weeks with selective high frequency (150 Hz) focal vibrations and low intensity pressure (approximately 4 mm) the sexual functions of these subjects IMPROVE ALSO THANKS TO THE REDUCTION OF THE SPASTICITY OF THE PELVIC FLOOR MUSCLES, in particular perineum, supra-pubic and sacrococcygeal areas with the following surveys:
- Muscle tone improves (evaluation on the modified scale of Ashworth (MAS));
- The international index of erectile function (IIEF) improves;
- The reflexes involved improve (cremasteric, bulb-cavernous, pubescent) and increase (electrophysiology of the bulbar-cavernous nerve, somatosensory evoked potential of the pubidus).
This feasibility study, also carried out in patients with serious neurological pathologies, represents a first milestone in the use of focal selective vibrations in the urology and erectile dysfunctions, which also follows the efficacy in uro-gynecology for rehabilitation of the pelvic floor female.
