Has anyone used Restorex?
« on: November 29, 2017, 03:43:29 PM »

This is supposedly developed at Mayo clinic and requires a lot less time per day in traction.  It expensive ($500), so wondering if anyone has tried it and whether it works.  https://www.restorex.com/product/penile-traction-therapy-device/   I'm newly diagnosed and looking for a traction devise that works but I don't have to rearrange my life around.  Thanks

I have not, but I'm also curious. I emailed back and forth a couple of times with the creator, Dr. Trost. He's pretty engaged with it and helping the community. I am wavering on the cost but will probs end up buying one. Because it is new and not yet proven, and requires less time than normal devices, I might use it as directed and then fill in extra hours with an existing device.

I bought it and have been using it for over two weeks.  I think it's great -- possibly a game-changer.  It is specifically designed for Peyronie's Disease and the online video does a great job of explaining how it works.

The best part is the clamp, which looks painful but isn't.  As they say, it mimics the grip of your hand and it's very easy to use.  The device gives an excellent stretch and with the springs, keeps that tension level as the penis stretches out and lengthens.  You do two 30 minute stretches a day.  The first is for straight-ahead lengthening.  For the second, the device bends the penis in the opposite direction of the curvature.  It seems like this would be very effective and no other device offers it.

I previously bought an X4 device, which is a total ripoff.  I don't understand how anybody can use it.  And I hate the sleazy website that preys on desperate people.

I just received a Penimaster Pro but I can't figure out how to get into it.

In addition to Restorex, I'm using a Soma Correct VED according to the protocol on this website.  I just finished my last round of Xiaflex (disappointing) but I think the combination of these two forms of traction (THREE if I can figure out this Penimaster Pro) and the Pentox I'm taking might get some results.

My only doubt about the Restorex is whether only one hour a day of traction can achieve a remodeling of the penis.  Dr. Trost compares traction to braces for the teeth, but you would never get anywhere wearing braces for only an hour a day.

In any case, I will report my results and as soon as I get some time, I'm going to post on my story up until now, with pictures.  I think it could be helpful.  I have benefited so much from this forum.

Back to the subject -- I recommend Restorex highly.

So far there is zero evidence that Restorex works, and a lot of evidence that existing traction devices do work (at a much lower cost). I know what I would be buying right now.

Apparently the makers are running a trial, I would wait until that information is available before buying.

Please share here, many of us are very interested.  I’m thinking of trying before the results are in, what could it hurt?

The straps are actually a lot easier to wear and move in than the rod extender frames that both RestoreX and PeniMaster Pro actually are.
The problem with straps is that there is no way to measure or to provide guidance on setting the tension you should, or need to be safely under. Also, when you move around with the strap option, especially if attached to your leg in the downward stretch option, the tension would obviously vary hugely rather than stay constant. In some cases it may get too high in my opinion (depending on your movement and position of the leg). When trying it, I have had a few occasions where I thought "Ouch, that was too much". OK it's a very temporary over stretch but personally, I'm not a fan of that. Also, the opposite applies. Some positions, like sat on the sofa, there is no tension and you have to discretely 'disappear' to make an adjustment to the strap.

I have the PeniMaster Pro rod extender (which has a strap option included) and yes, the time you have to wear it is very cumbersome and in some cases impossible (as you can't wear any rod extender when you leave the house really) to achieve every day. Having said that, I am very skeptical about the extremely short RestoreX wear time.

Few reasons :

1. The only different thing it is doing is providing the option of a stretch that directly opposes (over an axle) your bend angle. It's still just traction but slightly increased at the axle point of the device

2. I was always under the impression that traction can get results mostly due to a Physiological response to a phenomena called 'time under tension' .... used in everything from Bodybuilding to Sports Injury Rehab. This has mostly been proven with penis extension/enlargement results from traction devices worn for the long periods recommended

3. I personally got no results from traction until I jumped from 2 hours/day to 4 hours/day ( I do intend to go longer but just working up the time period incrementally)

I'm not a 'stick in the mud' though and will be really interested to hear people's results with RestoreX and the published Mayo results. It certainly will be a game changer if wear time goes down to the level they propose

As an after thought, it would be very interesting to study whether RestoreX gives a better result in a new post Xiaflex modelling protocol due to it's ability to bend directly against the plaque / injection site for more sustained periods than the recommended manual stretching against the plaque

I've just ordered one.

I'm only about a week into using an Andro, I have it adjusted so it's reasonably comfortable, but I know there is no way in hell I'm going to keep up with it for 8 or 9 hours a day for 12 to 18 months.

So, I hope the RestoreX program will work on my angle. I'm not as concerned with getting my lost length back, it seems more reasonable to me that wearing a traction device for many hours a day over a long period would be the best for that.

It's pretty expensive, maybe I should have waited for the trial results. But it looks to me that could be maybe 9 months or a year away.

================

update: they aren't cleared for sale in Canada yet, so they had to cancel my order.

Been using RestoreX for about 2 weeks ,so far no problems with wearing it or with the clamp. Emailed Dr. Trost ,theres a link on website for restorex that lets you email him so i did  and he emailed back in less than 24 hours. He told me that data  for a 3 months   study was coming out in March and that results were very promising. Results for 3 months showed 3 to 3.5 cm gained back in length and improvement of 15 degrees in curvature. This is using twice daily for 30 minutes each session.

Does anyone understand why only 1hr can yeild such results and you dont get the same results with PMP? What is the major difference?

2 years of development with Peyronie's disease in mind while engineering. Keep in mind that the Dr has a long list of credentials and has been treating Peyronies Disease patients(among many other male anatomy related issues) and is very familiar with what's already on the market. The controlled, consistent and calibrated tension while using is also key. Amount of tension is probably more than one would guess and is safely applied. I've had great improvements as well. All recorded by Dr Trost at my last appointment. Mayo Clinic and PathRight Medical may have just hit a home run with this one.

I have been using the RestoreX for about a month now.  I recently completed an entire cycle of Xiaflex which (I'm estimating) reduced a simple dorsal curve of about 75 degrees to 45 degrees.  Now I'm on Pentox, daily dose Cialis and a whole lot of the supplements that are usually mentioned here.

I use RestoreX for an hour a day.  Here is my "protocol".

1.  5 cycles (pump up and release) on the Augusta Medical vacuum device with the medium cylinder.
2.  30 minutes with Restorex (straight-on stretch)
3.  5 cycles VED
4.  30 minutes RestoreX (downward curve stretch)
5.  5 cycles VED

Other than when it's in the VED, my dick has a Hot Hands glove warmer tied onto it, or in my underpants.  That's all day, before and after the stretching.

This is, if I say so myself, a genius protocol.  The penis comes out of the RestoreX looking pretty much like a smashed-up ball of grey dryer lint (although that is to be expected).  With the first pump of the VED, blood flow is completely restored.

My dick comes out of this feeling great.  Erections are better than ever.  (Other than the curve, which I feel and HOPE is diminishing.)

I'm 54 and was experiencing some ED and general poor performance before Peyronie's came along.  If I would have known the benefits of this kind of traction, I would have begun spending an hour and a half a day doing these crazy traction exercises.  They're that good!

I'm taking pictures and I'm going to post a comprehensive report as soon as I have some time.  I'll keep tracking my condition with pictures that I'll post.

But what I have to say about RestoreX is that I think every guy with Peyronie's should buy it immediately.  Yes, there are a lot of questions about it and it has not been "proven".  (But remember that nothing other than surgery has really been "proven" to treat Peyronie's.)  RestoreX is the only device that is designed to treat our condition.  It is the only thing that will bend the penis against the curve.  Nothing can beat the stretch it gives.

The only two potential negatives I can say about RestoreX are:

(1) You could perform a much too intensive stretch and aggravate your problem.
(2) Those intense, directed stretches for only one hour a day may not be as effective as many hours of low-level stretching.

Also, the device is cheaply made.  They desperately need to come out with a "beta" version.  I've had failing clips and stripped screws, etc.  But they're customer service is great.  I have the personal email of their representative and he answers any email I send within an hour.  They ship out replacements overnight BEFORE you send back the defective unit.

This company is clearly dedicated to making an impact against Peyronie's disease.  They are 100% on our side.  I wouldn't spend another dime on sleazily-marketed "Penis Extenders" like X4, Andropenis, and that ripoff piece of junk called Penimaster Pro.

I think it would really benefit our community if we could get a big thread going here of guys reporting their progress with RestoreX.

BadChetta- are you using the RestoreX in 30 min intervals? If placed properly, the penis in the clamp, you should be able to use it without restricting blood flow(grey penis?) Make sure you use the 3m wrap around the glans for comfort. Have you adjusted the height on the clamp itself? There are three different positions. Make sure that you have pulled all of the scrotal skin through the bottom of the ring, where that extra opening at the bottom is. These things will give you a better and more comfortable stretch. One other thing. At my last appointment I was told you can wrap some gauze around the penis were it comes in contact with the device while doing the angular stretching to avoid any friction.

As far as the device feeling "cheap in quality", it was explained to me that some things could've been made differently to make it "better"(not in terms of effectiveness) however it would've driven up the cost and they wanted to avoid that. A lot of time went into this and the price reflects that.

WhatNext81,

I'm doing everything you said and everything exactly according to the instructions.  I think I exaggerated when I said my dick looked like a smashed ball of grey lint when it came out of the clamp.  I think the clamp is a great design and it is not uncomfortable to use for an hour.  I was just making the point that any clamping on the penis is going to restrict blood flow to an extent, and using the VED immediately after pumps those empty vessels full of blood.

I can appreciate the monumental task the designers and engineers faced in designing and mass producing the device.  When I said "cheaply-made", I meant:

1.  The spring-locking mechanism occasionally fails (not a big deal).
2.  One of the screws was stripped so you could not expand the clamp.
3.  The plastic mechanism that holds the clamp shut broke (but could still be used, kind of awkwardly).

In all cases, customer service was GREAT!  Responded to emails immediately.  Sent replacement parts out immediately with return packages for me to send the defective parts.  All of my feedback goes to the engineers as they are genuinely interested in fixing whatever weak areas this, and any new product, will inevitably have.

None of the criticisms is anything close to a deal-killer.  I think every guy on here should buy this thing now and I honestly believe it's going to be the go-to treatment, or at least the go-to adjunct for treatment, for Peyronie's Disease in the future.

Gotcha! I've had the same expierence with a few issues. I bought it on the first day it becamce available. PathRight is awesome with turn around. I've received a replacement and the return box, with a free return shipping label within 1 business day. Of the 3 isssues you mention, they're being addressed and should be resolved sometime soon. Possibly this week! So you have tried the dry gauze in conjunction with the self-adheasive wrap that's inclueded? And are you doing hour sessions? Or two, 30 min sessions per day?
