INTRODUCTION
®
Viberect penile vibratory stimulation device is a US manufactured handheld therapeutic vibrator intended to provoke penile erection for erectile
dysfunction, and to provoke ejaculation. The Viberect is CE certified, cleared
by the US FDA, Health Canada and TGA (Australia) as a class II medical
device.
Penile vibratory stimulation is an easy and non-invasive nerve stimulation
method, similar to sexual intercourse or manual stimulation that helps to
activate nerve receptors (nerve antennas) that are located on the skin
surface of the penis. These nerves communicate with sexual centers of the
brain and spinal cord.
Activation and initiation of sexual reflexes
(pudendocavernosus & bulbocavernosus) by the Viberect device helps to
initiate penile erection, rigidity, orgasm and ejaculation. This device is
designed by urologists specializing in sexual dysfunction to help men benefit
from this modality with ease in the comfort of their home.
This User’s Guide provides information and instructions which must be
®
followed to ensure safe performance of the Viberect device. This User’s
Guide also contains warnings and precautions which must be observed at all
times.
CAUTION:
ALL STATEMENTS IN THIS GUIDE SHOULD BE FOLLOWED
AT ALL TIMES.
Read the instruction carefully before use.

PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE USE
WARNING:
Each
Viberect
device is intended for use by
one person only.
It should
never be shared by another
person, as this will increase risk
of communicable or sexually
transmitted diseases.
Treat
your device like a personal
toothbrush or other personal
hygienic products.
Autonomic dysreflexia may be
caused by various factors such as
for instance an over distended
bowel
or
urinary
bladder.
Procedures which involve triggering
of orgasm or including vibratory
stimulation may precipitate an acute
episode of autonomic dysreflexia.
WARNING: This device should
not be used over swollen or
inflamed
areas
or
skin
eruptions. Do not use in
presence of unexplained calf
pain. Consult your physician.
If the user has spinal cord lesion
and is above the T6 level the user
should obtain careful instructions
from your physician concerning
autonomic dyreflexia, its potential
consequences,
and
whether
vibratory stimulation is acceptable
form of treatment.
WARNING: This device should
not be used for more than 10
minutes a day to avoid skin
injury.
Excessive vibratory
stimulation can increase risk of
skin irritation and temporary
numbness.
If the user is at risk of experiencing
autonomic
dysreflexia,
it
is
recommended to use nifedipine (a
calcium channel blocker), 10-20 mg,
orally, 10-15 minutes before vibration
is initiated and to stop vibration
immediately at onset of ejaculation.
Vibratory stimulation may cause
superficial trauma to the skin
resulting in bruising, bleeding or
superficial ulceration. If any such
condition occurs, refrain from
vibrating
and
consult
your
physician. Do not immerse the
vibrator in any type of fluid. Do not
operate the vibrator in bathrooms
or
elsewhere
under
wet
conditions. If the user is spinal
cord injured an episode of
autonomic
dysreflexia
may
develop as a result of vibratory
stimulation. If so, vibration should
be stopped immediately. Consult
your physician.
WARNING
If the user develops penile erection
after use of the Viberect device that
lasts for more than four hours,
consult your physician or go the
emergency room immediately, as
the user may have developed
Priapism, which is a medical
emergency. Priapism is a medical
condition
in
which
poorly
oxygenated red blood cells are
entrapped in your penis.
This
requires urgent medical or surgical
attention.
Reflexonic® Viberect®
WARNING
Avoid Viberect use in temperatures
exceeding 35 Cº or 95º F.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE FOR EJACULATION
SPINAL CORD INJURED
CAUTION
If your lesion is above T6 spinal
cord level, you must follow your
physician’s instructions carefully to
prevent autonomic dysreflexia.
Autonomic dysreflexia is
experienced as a sudden, pounding
headache, and a rapid increase in
the blood pressure due to
excessive activation of the
autonomic nervous system. If your
spinal cord injury is above the T6
level; your body may have lost
ability to automatically control the
blood pressure.
It is recommended that at least two
vibration procedures are performed
in a clinical setting before using the
Viberect at home.
The following initial setting is
recommended:
Frequency: 100 Hz
Amplitude: 2-3 mm (constant)
Continue vibration until
ejaculation occurs or for a
maximum of 3 minutes followed
by a pause of 1 minute. Speak to
your physician for further setting
recommendations.
The reflex arch can
become exhausted if you
stimulate with high
amplitude vibration more
then 1-2 times every 7-10
days or for more then 3-5
minutes without resting
between each attempt.
Place yourself comfortably before
turning on the Viberect® device
Try lying on a firm mattress,
massage table, or even the
floor.

and the penis by the dominant
hand
PRECAUTIONS
Do not perform penile vibratory stimulation more than once every 24 hours.
In some cases, it is recommended to perform vibration once a week only in
order to avoid “exhaustion” of the ejaculatory reflex.
Determine together with your physician how often vibration should be
performed.
If the user has difficulties ejaculating at the recommended settings, the user
may try another setting.
If the purpose of inducing ejaculation is to attempt to achieve pregnancy,
the ejaculate should be collected in a non-spermicidal container, designed
for sperm collection.
For the purpose of achieving penile erection, start with a low setting and
advance to higher frequency for your comfort.

STEP BY STEP VIBERECT® OPERATING INSTRUCTION
For provoking penile erection
Approximate Stimulation time: 3-10 minutes
FOR OPTIMAL SEXUAL RESPONSE, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU
FOLLOW THESE IMPORTANT SUGGESTED OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS. IT MAY REQUIRE SEVERAL SESSIONS BEFORE
YOU LEARN HOW TO PROPERLY USE YOUR VIBERECT DEVICE TO
ACHIEVE OPTIMAL RESULTS.
Step 1: Choose a quiet, private, and dim room in your home. Your bedroom
is an ideal location. STANDING IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE POSITION.
You may also sit or lie down.
Step 2: To get the best results, we recommend that you become as relaxed
as possible, and think of sexual thoughts or memories, or perform Viberect
as part of foreplay. Remember, it is very difficult to obtain an erection if
you are anxious, worried, and impatient. Do not focus on the use of
the device. Focus on sexual thoughts.
Remember:
+
Sexual Thoughts
= Sexual Response
Genital Nerve Stimulation
Step 3: Expose your penis, with your shorts down to prevent constriction of
blood flow by your underwear. If you are uncircumcised, pull your foreskin to
expose the head of your penis.
Step 4: To prepare the penis for Vibratory stimulation, it is necessary to
expose the nerve antennas that are located on the surface of your penis,
especially on the head of your penis.

Now, perform the following exercise!
“Bulbocavernosus reflex”.
A. Using one or both of your hands, gently grab the head of your penis
using your thumbs and index fingers. Only grab the head and not the ring
(corona) of your penis. Only grab the head and nowhere else.
A
B1
B2
B. Gently stretch your penis in the air until it reaches its normal limit as
shown in image B1. Stretch and release without letting go of the head of the
penis. After several repetitive stretch and releases every 2-3 seconds, you
should feel your penis and pelvic muscles contracting very quickly and
resisting your gentle pull for a tiny half a second after each pull. Never
stretch your penis excessively, just enough to your normal length when you
are erect.
STRETCH……RELEASE……STRETCH…….RELEASE….(B1-B2).
C. This “pull-back reaction” is a completely normal and painless body reflex.
It is called the Bulbocavernosus reflex. As you gently stretch your penis
to its limit, your penis quickly pulls back. This motion is caused by reflex
contraction of many muscles in your pelvic area, including your rigidity
muscles, anus, and urine control muscle (sphincter). You may need to
repeat this exercise to fully learn this technique.
D. Once you learn this technique, you can gently pull the penis to its normal
stretch and release to elicit this reflex repeatedly once every 2-3 seconds.
This is not rubbing of the penis, but gentle pulling and releasing. Perform
this technique for 2-3 minutes (2-3 seconds apart). Once you perform this
exercise correctly, you can expect gradual engorgement of your penis,
especially the head of your penis, and rigidity.

Step 5: Hold the device in your dominant hand, as demonstrated below:
You may choose to use small amount of lotion or lubricant.
Step 6: Turn the device ON by pushing the touch pad power
button.
The device is ready, but no vibrations will occur until you bring the two
bodies together with your hand grip. To provoke erection, start with
frequency of 70-75 Hz (1-2 lights).
Step 7: Keep your penis gently stretched by the device while
stimulating. Apply pressure on both arms by closing your fingers. The
device will activate.
Reflexonic® Viberect®
Page 12 of 16
User Guide 2011-1-0 Rev-1
Step 8: Bring the vibrating pads in contact with the surface of your
stretched penis on both sides. Focus on the head of the penis. Keep your
penis gently stretched. The Viberect device will now stimulate your penis.
You can increase the pressure and sensation by putting your hand and grip
closer to the vibrating end of the device, and even pushing more with your
free hand pushing of the vibrating end. You should find a "sweet spot" on
your penis, where sensations are the strongest. Apply the Viberect on the
sweet spot. Note: The user should never force the device together
excessively, as this can damage the device or your penis. You may move
your hip back and forth while stimulating to mimic sexual intercourse
Step 9: As you stimulate the surface of the penis, you may choose to
increase the intensity of stimulation by pushing the frequency adjustment
buttons with your thumb that is holding the upper housing. Begin with the
lowest frequency. You may also change the mode to A: Upper only B:
Lower only and C: Both. Now completely relax and focus on
intense sexual thoughts!
Step 10: If sensations are too intense or you wish to stop the device
immediately, you can easily relax your grip and the device will immediately
stop. You can decrease the intensity of stimulation by lowering the
frequency as well.
Step 11: Continue stimulating your shaft and head of the penis. Focus
mostly on the head of the penis. If you feel an area that is especially
sensitive, then hold the device there for about 3-10 minutes depending on
your body and the situation. It is important for you to relax completely
and focus on thoughts of sexual nature. Sexual reflexes and pathways
won’t work in a non-relaxed setting. The process takes several minutes
and is NOT immediate! You may feel your penis slowly filling with blood and
becoming more firm. The device will open easily and gradually to
accommodate the enlarging penis.
Step 12: You can easily deactivate the device by either turning the device
off, or just letting go of your hand and releasing the pressure. Push the
power button for 3 seconds, and the device will turn off.
Reflexonic® Viberect®

User Guide 2011-1-0 Rev-1
Once you reach optimal rigidity, release your grip, and set the device away.
You may begin sexual intercourse if your rigidity is satisfactory.
Note: Not all men may respond to the Viberect stimulation in the
beginning. It may take several sessions until you become comfortable
with the operation of the device.
Penile Rehabilitation after Prostate Cancer Treatments:
Use the device as soon as possible after surgery, radiation or
other treatments. Continue use daily or at least three times a
week. Effects are gradual and incremental. You can combine
therapy with oral meds or injections.
