RigiScan® Background

It is generally recognized that healthy men have somewhere between 3 and 6 erections every evening. Because the penis is one of the only parts of a man’s body where there is skin, but no muscle under the skin, most experts in the field of sexual medicine believe that nocturnal erections are the body’s method of keeping the tissues inside the penis healthy. In other words, nocturnal erections are likely the way the body “exercises” the penis so that the penis is healthy enough for sexual activity when the opportunity presents. 

The System

The RigiScan® Plus Rigidity Assessment System is a non-invasive ambulatory diagnostic tool used to measure the frequency, rigidity and duration of both nocturnal and provocative erections. RigiScan® testing can be quite helpful in differentiating between organic and psychogenic erectile dysfunction. RigiScan® test results can also provide important insight that helps health care professionals determine how to best initiate treatment for erectile dysfunction. This insight can lead to better initial treatment and improved outcomes when managing a patient suffering from erectile dysfunction.
