We support the right of men with disabilities such as spinal cord injury (SCI) or ejaculatory dysfunction to have children or enjoy a healthy sex life.
Towards that end, we collaborate with leading medical institutions in the research and development of non-invasive products to facilitate ejaculation and the treatment of male infertility, using penile vibratory stimulation – PVS (also designated TMNS – Transcutaneous Mechnical Nerve Stimulation).
We welcome you to learn more about our FertiCare Personal Vibrator, Viberect, and Intimate Rider products, and our efforts in this field by exploring our website.
The Concept of Penile Vibratory Stimulation (PVS)
While maintaining a healthy sex life is important to many people, the ability to ejaculate is decreased after spinal cord injury. This is the primary cause of infertility in spinal cord injured men. The use of the vibration concept has proven effective in the treatment of infertility. While the technique is often performed initially in a clinical setting, it can also be performed at home – as is being done by more than a thousand men world-wide.
The Medical Explanation
To induce ejaculation by penile vibratory stimulation (PVS) requires an intact ejaculatory reflex arch to provide transmission of afferent stimuli from penis to the sacral, lumbar and lower thoracic segments of the spinal cord, and efferent stimuli from these segments to the ejaculatory organs. The above mentioned spinal cord segments will, even when isolated from the brain, respond to PVS.
