The X4 Labs extender is a traction-based medical device designed to provide a permanent enlargement of the penis. The device slowly stretches the tissues of the penis, with the claimed growth of up to 35 percent, or about two to three inches for people who start with average-sized penises. The manufacturer also states that the stretching process is safe and produces stronger erections in addition to overall growth.
This company offers its penis extended in one of five traction kits, from a relatively limited starter edition to the company’s X4 Extender Gold Premium edition, which includes stronger tensions springs and a range of extra bonus products. All packages include comfort pads to reduce the risk of injury and a basic instructional CD to help customers learn to use the product correctly. Special extenders and extender parts are available for people who have exceptionally small or exceptionally thick penises, but these come at an additional cost to the purchaser.
How It Works
Traction-based devices like the X4 Labs extender work by constricting the penis and gently pulling it outward. When used correctly, they can increase the size of the internal cavities in the penis, producing a larger erect organ. They may also help increase blood circulation to the penis, increasing overall penile health. Weighted springs help provide consistent pressure and automatic length adjustments, even if an erection occurs while the extender is in place.
A study published in the March 2009 issues of BJU International showed that traction-based penis extenders provided their wearers with an increase in the flaccid length of up to 33 percent. This improvement occurs in patients who wore the devices for between four and six hours per day for six months to a year. Traction-based extenders offer less improvement in girth, but cardiovascular benefits from the device may help wearers enlarge the diameter of their penis rather than just the length.
Only a very small percentage of study participants experienced any significant discomfort or side effects, making this a safe option for many people. This study showed that men who do not technically qualify for enlargement surgery can still gain nonsurgical benefits from extender devices.
