Was the Penis Traction device developed for Peyronies Disease?
No, it was actually developed in its' present form to treat a condition known as micro-penis syndrome. This is a condition in which a penis under one inch in erect length is steadily stretched over a prolonged period of time to lengthen and enlarge it. It was found to be highly successful and effective for this use.
How does Penis Traction help Peyronies Disease?
The same type of device has been approved as a treatment for Peyronie's and bent penis syndrome for several years. By adding increased traction along one side of the penis, the penis can be steadily straightened.
How long does it take to straighten a penis?
This method of penis straightening can take up to 6 months, traction devices have been shown to have a therapeutic element to them. Traction helps to strengthen the penis shaft and improve blood flow. This leads to stronger & straighter erections.
Have Clinical studies been done on Traction devices?
Yes, Seven doctors in the Urology department at the University of Torino, Italy had participating Peyronie's disease patients wear spring loaded arm traction devices. The patients average age was 53.3, and all of the subjects had non congenital curvature due to Peyronie's disease. The average time duration of the disease was 16 months, and all of the subject patients had clinically stable disease. There were 40 patients in the test with one dropping out after a few days due to discomfort caused by the device. The patients received no additional medication or use of any E.D. meds. during the study. There was no reduction in plaque size, but at the end of the study most of the patients were rated as showing acceptable improvement. One of the byproducts in this study were increases in penis length and girth. The majority of the patients were listed as satisfied with the results. The doctors stated at the end of the study, that the best time to pursue nonsurgical treatment is in the acute stages, that is in the first twelve months of onset. The patients in this study with stabilized disease achieved on average a 13.5% reduction in curvature. In a prior study with patients in the acute stage, there was a recorded average 33% reduction in curvature over six months time, using traction alone as the treatment program.
Why not use a Vacuum pump, instead of a Traction Device?
Traction devices have been shown to be effective in treating Peyronie's disease. Vacuum pumps have been known to cause lumps, blood clots and bruising of the penis. They do not have the ability to put traction on one side of the penis over the other, so they have been known to cause curvature damage and increase damage in Peyronies disease patients.

You will need to read the section on product comparisons. There is a big difference in the comfort between some brands. I know from experience. I wasted my money on a cheap product and then had to go with a better design. The end result was I spent more money than I needed to. I should have purchased a better quality one first.
