How to Choose a Penis Pump

With a variety of pumps to choose from, many men have difficulty deciding which type of pump to buy. iMEDiHelp offers some guidance as to choosing your first vacuum erection pump.

Manual vs. Battery One of the first decisions a man must make is whether they want a battery or manual pump. Battery operated pumps work by simply pressing a button. Create a seal between the skin and the pump cylinder and then suction can commence.

Manually operated pumps work by a hand operation. This operation will vary between brands. For example, the Power X Manual Pump is operated by pushing in a round plunger on the end of the cylinder. The CLASSIC Manual Pump is operated by squeezing a lever that is attached to an ergonomically designed hand grip.

If you don’t know which one to try first, the most economical option is the PRO ACTIV DUO Pump. These impotence pumps are both battery and manually operated, so you can try it both ways.

What Size Penis Tension Band Should I Get?

Selecting the right sized tension band or penis ring size is often difficult to determine. For many men afflicted with erectile dysfunction, finding the right penis ring is a matter of trial and error. There are three factors to consider when selecting a penis ring. These factors are the size of the tension band, the amount of tension the band provides, and the amount of displacement.
