Mechanical penis enlargement traction devices work on the principal that the human body will adapt under pressure. These devices are designed to trigger growth in the penis by applying a constant stretching force over the length of the penis. The body which then adjusts to this force begins to build new, bulky tissue cells.
Over the centuries, this principle of traction has been used to enlarge various parts of the human body. In places like Burma, it has been used to elongate the necks of woman. Some African tribes have also used this technique to stretch both ears and lips to exaggerated sizes. In contemporary orthopedic surgery, this principle of traction is used to lengthen fingers or legs and also to cover tissue defects of the face.
Penis traction devices are worn over the penis whereby a plastic ring is fastened to the base of the penis, while a flexible silicone ring is attached to the penis head. There are two adjustable bars that run along the sides of the penis and can be adjusted to vary the tension amount by anywhere from 1.5 to 3.5 lbs. of force.
While there is no set amount of time that the device must be worn, most manufacturers recommend 2 to 8 hours a day for optimal results. These devices are designed to promote permanent growth, unlike vacuum pumps, and once the desired size is attained its use can usually be discontinued.
Some traction device systems, like the one offered by SizeGenetics, combine penis enlargement exercise techniques along with use of the device. The added stimulation from a natural exercise workout routine helps to augment the size gains achieved thought the use of these devices. The result of this type of combined approach means greater gains in length and width and improved erection strength in a shorter period of time. Both methods have been individually tested and proven effective at enlarging the penis. Traction devices have also been shown to help in straightening the penis and combating the effects of Peyronie's Disease.
