Below is a picture of the Mod for the Restorex that I tried from a posting that Dr Trost spoke on.  It is basically a makeup pad with a strap on the bottom.  He stated , "You can basically attach them to the clamp using the attached strap, and then you don't even need to wrap the penis.  They are a game changer for the device with comfort, and I'm hoping that the company will include something like that in future kits ."
 
  I went ahead and ordered a pack of them and all I can say is WOW!  I tried it with one on the top and bottom and I had no slippage at all!  I also didn't even need a wrap!  You can buy them on Amazon -->https://www.amazon.com/BEAKEY-Blending-Available-Products-Non-Latex/dp/B07G4S2YDP .

                                     A big thank you Dr Trost for posting this info!!

Thanks for sharing and providing the photos as well. This looks great, way less hassle than my current approach.

If this works, it could be a game changer.  I wrap a lot, and it can be painful sometimes to unwrap.  I will certainly try this out.

This was a very good post. Like others said, thank you for the pictures. The fact that you don't need to wrap your penis is a game changer definitely!

Thank you for this - defs a gam changer.

I use to use the sponge technique but my penis kept slipping out of the clasp. Does this happen with the sponge at all? Or any advice?

I bought the make-up sponges from Priceline a cheap chain store in Australia selling women's health and makeup gear.
Costs $8.95 they are excellent  and no slippage on stretch or the more prone to slippage full 120° bend.
Good luck guys to those that persevere with RestoreX.

Can someone please explain the strap? i.e how are they taping it to the clamp - double sided tape?

Thank you for this posting! it's a huge game changer for me as I was suffering from constant irritation using the self-adhesive tape, and was considering stopping with Restorex completely. I just ordered some pads and I'm looking forward to trying them out.

One question - are they good for more than one usage?

Henry1953:

Hello! Good on you. I personally think that restorex is the way to go. Yes, you can use them more than once and it comes with a lot of them. I am loving the difference it makes.

Good luck. I invite you to make a post about them and the renewed experience as soon as you try them out!

The make up pads indicated in the link if shipped to Italy cost three times more (about 30 $).

Here is an alternative for less than € 10:

I didn't buy the American ones and can't make a direct comparison, but from the description they look very similar. To the test they are actually absolutely better than the supplied self-adherent wrap which for me is practically unbearable, in particular for the abrasive effect on the skin.

I tried washing the pads and reusinng them, but they become thin and uncomfortable after 2 washes. I was also able to use the strapless pads that come in the bag after securing them with double sided tape. They were just as comfortable as the strapped pads.

I use them with double sided tape - works fine. Should be able to comfortably click down to 3-4 clicks on the clamp.

Great catch, Mike!

Picked up a set of pads from your Amazon link.  Been using for several days and found them far superior to self stick tape which also self sticks to my penis.

Only issue is reduced space for clamping but very small issue.  If edge of glans is located at ridge in the clamp base, I have seen no slippage.

After a month of medication to clear my genital warts that popped up after a several weeks of Restorex, I restarted and so far no warts, growths, or red skin irritation. I went back to using the adhesive tape simply because I had so much trouble without tape trying to place my penis properly, with the glans above the the clamp's ridge. I'm using less tape, maybe 1.5-2 wraparounds, and wrapping much more lightly than I was before. It's allowing me to place the head easily without slippage, even when doing the curvature at level 3 (which is my max at this time). As long as I slowly peel off the tape there's very little friction or pull on my skin. I do wish there were a tape that was soft on both sides with a sticky tab to keep it together. Maybe I'll try that with a soft bandage and a regular bandaid holding it together, just in case it starts irritating me again.
Also, I have noticed a 1/2" increase in length during full erection. I almost cried.
Patience is more than a virtue, it's the only way to get through this. Good luck one and all.

Good to hear Henry!

I'm finding slippage now when using the extension rods with makeup pads. Thinking of other options as well but the tape is just too uncomfortable.

Happy you have seen results!! How long have you been using Restorex?

I had used Restorex for 4 weeks when I noticed a small wart on the underside near the glans. My urologist prescribed Imiquimod cream which I used for a month and the wart disappeared without any irritating side effects. If the wart reappears then he'll remove it in office. Would really like to avoid that. I want to get through the recommended 3 months of Restorex and then assess the situation. If I'm not happy with the results I'll probably avoid plication and go straight to the incision surgery. Doing research on that now. I'm not overly concerned about the almost 2" of length I've lost, but I really do want to get rid of the curvature, which veers to the left at 30-35 percent. Even though I can attain a 90% erection at this time, I'm dealing the prospect that my sex life most probably will never be the same, which at times can be very depressing. Thankfully this forum is a lifesaver, figuratively speaking, for me. Thank you for your input, there is much comfort in knowing that I'm not alone with this problem, which is a medical condition I'd never even heard of until 18 months ago. That said, my heart especially goes out to the younger men who are dealing with this. It's difficult to live with this, but because of this forum I feel there is some hope of resolving it.
Regarding a substitute for the tape, I'm checking out various other tape-related products that might make it easier to a consistently strong and painless grip. I'll of course post anything I find that might work.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. Henry, if you feel like you want to vent then don't hesitate to post on the Psychological aspects board. We are here to help how little we can and hopefully members will chime in. No doubt about how this destroys people on the inside.... It is just so hard to deal with it...

Here is another mod that you can use if you are in need of greater traction with restorex. All credits go to jj

For anyone interested - I found those rectangular makeup pads to be clamping my head in an awkward and tight position which started to give me pain in both the glans and shaft (perhaps the penis was being stretched on a slight angle?).

I changed the mod to circular makeup pads with sports tape that tapes directly onto  the pad, this seems to be much more comfortable and gives a better stretch.  See pic.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I just order pads from Amazon.

BMarc

I just got the pads from that link.  Much appreciated.  I JUST ordered the RestoreX too.  I've had Peyronie's for I would estimate about 8 or 9 months.  I'm hoping it's not too late to get started.  I've been doing hand stretching and taking the recommended supplements plus pentox and a quarter viagra per day.  I'm at about 60 degrees.  Makes it hard to get in.

jj21

Bmarc - definitely not too late! Lot of people here had peyronies for years, some were able to cure themselves with traction and VED even after all those years - have a read through the forums.

Best of luck,

I got the make up pads.  They work great.  Thanks for the info.

Great find! Just slip the pads on, adjust the clamp height, and bob's your uncle...instant comfort. Or at least as close to comfort as it gets :-). Like those pads were made for the job.

Thanks so much for posting this!

I got a set of makeup pads delivered and wow, what a difference. RestoreX traction alone ain't no peach and the tape was at best uncomfortable. The pads make "yoga" much more tolerable.

I agree, have been using the pads for 3 weeks now after finishing a Verapamil treatment. Such a difference compared to my previous regime with tissue and gauss. Way less skin irritation too.

A game changer, nothing less.

These Men Extender Foam Pads for Foam Tube Stretch Extension Memory Foam on Amazon are way better than the makeup pads. Just slip it over your penis, clamp and 30 minutes with ease.  I use these every single day. No issues at all perfect for the RestoreX. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FNDQKDB/ref=ox_sc_saved_image_1?smid=A27AZ1V7WD4LWG&psc=1

I tried these, and they are not suitable uncircumcised men. If you are circumcised, avoiding the foreskin is a big part of clamping. With these cylindrical foam pieces, you can't see your foreskin and have to clamp blind.

The washable memory foam is nice, though. Should be great for circumcised men. If anyone wants the 4 unused pieces, contact me and I'll mail them to you.

I see what you mean about it being more difficult for uncircumcised men. That said, I am not circumsised and using the sponges work great for me. It is a bit tricky to pull back the foreskin with the sponges blocking the view, but I got the hang of it after a while. It is tricky but way more comfortable and leads to less skin irritation than my previous wrapping approach, but that is just me.

That is simply not true. Check my traction diary before you part ways with your gear: https://www.peyroniesforum.net/index.php/topic,17356.msg150174.html#msg150174

Works perfect for me, and i have no shortage of skin on my glans.

I agree the foam cylinders are way more comfortable than wrapping, but makeup pads are nicer still. You don't need to wrap and can see what you are doing.
