Energy Specific Far Infrared Radiation Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction
A preliminary study to determine the possibility of using far infrared (FIR) radiation to treat impotency.
Erectile dysfunction is characterized by the regular or repeated inability to obtain or maintain an erection. Erection depends on a complex interaction of psychological, neural, vascular and endocrine factors.
We are proposing a non-drug and a non-invasive radiation treatment for the enhancement of erection.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Measurement of the regional temperature of the body or an organ by infrared sensing devices, based on self-emanating infrared radiation.
The inability in the male to have a PENILE ERECTION due to psychological or organ dysfunction.
Inability to achieve and maintain an erection (ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION) due to defects in the arterial blood flow to the PENIS, defect in venous occlusive function allowing blood drainage (leakage) from the erectile tissue (corpus cavernosum penis), or both.
Surgical insertion of cylindric hydraulic devices for the treatment of organic ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION.
A condition caused by a brief whole body exposure to more than one sievert dose equivalent of radiation. Acute radiation syndrome is initially characterized by ANOREXIA; NAUSEA; VOMITING; but can progress to hematological, gastrointestinal, neurological, pulmonary, and other major organ dysfunction.
