What is GAINSWave?

GAINSWave is a non-surgical medical procedure used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) and enhance male sexual performance. GAINSWave utilizes low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT) to eliminate micro plaques and improve blood flow and angiogenesis (the growth of new blood vessels).

How is GAINSWave intended to be used?

GAINSWave is intended for addressing erectile dysfunction (ED), a medical condition where a man experiences ongoing challenges in achieving or sustaining an erection suitable for sexual activity. ED can result from a range of factors, including physical, psychological, or lifestyle-related causes, and it can affect a man’s sexual performance and overall well-being. GAINSWave approaches ED treatment by improving overall blood flow by delivering acoustic waves to the affected tissues.

How does GAINSWave work?


GAINSWave Therapy Overview:

  • Handheld device administers shockwaves to the penis.
  • Shockwaves are high frequency and low intensity.
  • Initiates angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels.

Blood Circulation Enhancement:

  • Newly generated blood vessels improve blood circulation to the penis.

  • Essential for attaining and sustaining erections.

  • Erection relies on adequate blood influx to fill erectile tissues.


Micro-Plaque Disintegration:

  • GAINSWave therapy can disintegrate micro-plaque within existing blood vessels.

  • Micro-plaque is a buildup of cholesterol and other substances.

  • Buildup can constrict and stiffen blood vessels, diminishing blood flow.


Release of Growth Factors:

  • Shockwaves trigger the release of growth factors within the treated area.
  • Growth factors facilitate the repair and regeneration of tissue in the penile region.

Cumulative Effects:

  • Improved blood flow, micro-plaque disruption, and tissue repair have cumulative effects.
  •  Over time, these effects lead to the renewal and revitalization of erectile tissue.
  •  Enhancement of erectile function.
  •  Improvement in the quality of erections.

What are the typical treatment areas?

The treatment area for GAINSWave is the penile tissue.

How is GAINSWave different from other penile rejuvenation devices?

Unlike other treatments, Gainswave is completely safe and non-invasive. In the multitude of studies done on shockwave therapy, not a single major adverse event was reported. A study published by the NIH showed that positive, long-term improvement in erectile function was seen in Indian men who had vasculogenic ED. While the PDE5i drug therapy also works, it just doesn’t compare to Gainswave. Additionally, GAINSWave targets the root cause of erectile dysfunction (ED), that being the lack of blood flow to the penis. By treating the root cause, GAINSWave allows men to experience improved blood flow to the penis which lets men experience long-lasting and optimal sexual health. Other benefits of GAINSWave include the following:

  • Non-invasive treatment.
  • Painless.
  • No downtime.
  • No side effects.
  • Ensures erection and better sexual performance.
  • Patient no longer needs to take medications like Viagra® or Cialis®.
  • Cost-effective treatment.
