Between January and August 2017, the people using the vacuum erection devices Active Erection System® and Manual Erection System® in Europe were directly questioned for the first time. We were interested in the degree of satisfaction with the product and in the frequency of use, but also in the age- and health-related prior history of the respondents. The survey was undertaken by company KESSEL MEDintim GmbH.
Erection devices are tried-and-true medical devices, for which the patients suffering from erectile dysfunction have been reimbursed for many years by statutory health insurance, e.g. in the case of diabetes, intake of anti-hypertensive medication and after prostate surgery.
Overall, the survey reached 1500 men, and due to the very personal nature of the topic, it was partly also anonymous. The initial assessment is based on the answers of the first 100 respondents.
