Penis Prosthetic Could Change The World Of Erectile Dysfunction
We talk about penises a lot — and actually think about the scale and scope of infatuation the human consensus has with male sex organs.
Every year millions of dollars are dedicated to understanding sexual behavior, from the perception of size, to stimulation, pleasure, position.
We as a society are completely enraptured by and worried about male genitalia.
It comes as no surprise that the next step in modern culture is to utilize technology to reinforce and sustain the idea of invulnerability when it comes towards penises and erectile dysfunction.
Today’s magical marvel comes in the form of a prosthetic for your penis, developed by a team of scientists from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
Brian Le, a member of the Department of Urology, in tandem with colleagues Alberto Colombo and Kevin McKenna at Northwestern University and Kevin McVary at Southern Illinois University, have investigated the memory shape changing alloy Nitinol, towards developing a minimally invasive treatment towards the growing problem of erectile dysfunction.
Their prototype, which can be viewed below, demonstrates the prosthetic as a possible look into the world of evolving urology development.
The spine-like contraption is devised to attach to the curvature of the phallus and when in the presence of a change in heat, the spine snaps upright and rigid for full use and action.
This utilization of nitinol and other memory shaping alloys for human integration proves that the future is not so far off than we initially perceived.
Daily integrations through wearables are just the very first step leading towards assisted tech like this piece, uniformly dubbed ‘the bionic penis’ by the team.
Currently speaking, the standard for treating erectile dysfunction that isn’t a drug administered stimuli comes from penis pumps, however if the spine is further developed and designed towards a point where it’s discreet, the phallic support system may be upended.
