Aliso Viejo, Ca. 2/10/09: An inexpensive new erectile dysfunction testing device developed by a California company is designed to give men the earliest warning yet of the onset of health problems affecting the heart and vascular system. The new device may increase lead-time in treating serious health issues by months and perhaps even years.
Called an Erectile Quality Monitor, EQM for short, the device measures the internal pressure of the erect penis. A drop in this pressure reading can indicate the onset of cardio vascular disease, hypertension and diabetes. As an early warning device, the EQM is a breakthrough in preventative medicine.
“ED which is manifested by diminished penile rigidity has been shown in many men to be the very first indication of wide-spread vascular disease including coronary/heart disease. Using this device at home can allow a man to check his vascular health painlessly, quickly and privately,“ said Dr. Laurence A. Levine, MD, FACS, a leading researcher and Urologist in Chicago.
Exercise and diet issues or other factors often lead to Erectile Dysfunction and its underlying causes such as hypertension, diabetes, coronary and vascular disease. By the time the symptoms are discovered or reported to a physician it is often too late to minimize damage already caused. The EQM is designed to give physicians the chance to begin treatment far earlier than before and produce better outcomes as a result.
The EQM was developed by Fastsize LLC of Aliso Viejo, Ca. with the co-operation of
the Spanish inventor of the technology. Company spokesman Mike Hays said, “As a medical device manufacturer dedicated to sexual health and well-being, we have seen the need for inexpensive technology that can provide early warning of erectile problems in men. Devices that measure internal pressure of the penis have been around for some time, but they are inaccurate,
cumbersome, or very expensive. We looked at this technology and realized we could redevelop
it in a device that costs less than $100.00.
“That means every man out there can afford to test the state of his health and get help sooner than ever before when it is needed. “The EQM is exactly the kind of simple, inexpensive testing device every healthy man should have in his medicine cabinet. In less than a second it can confirm your healthy status, or tell you to see your physician. This device works for men’s health the way a testing meter works for diabetics, you know exactly from the reading what your condition is,” said Hays.
The EQM delivers a pressure reading when it is pressed against the tip of the erect penis. A color-coded LED scale provides a reading in grams of pressure. Above a certain reading means normal health, below it means there may be cause for concern. The EQM can be ordered from physicians and urologists and also directly from Fastsize LLC at fastsizemedical.com.
