Title (EN) CLITORAL TREATMENT DEVICES AND METHODS
(FR) DISPOSITIFS ET PROCEDES SERVANT A TRAITER LE CLITORIS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Therapeutic devices and methods according to embodiments of the invention encourage or cause clitoral engorgement to assist in the treatment of female sexual dysfunction. A vacuum is created over the clitoris, or suction is applied to the clitoris, to create a negative pressure in the clitoris that is lower than the systolic blood pressure. This tends to promote engorgement of the clitoris with blood.
(FR)Dispositifs et procédés thérapeutiques permettant de stimuler ou de provoquer l'engorgement clitoridien afin de contribuer au traitement du dysfonctionnement sexuel chez la femme. On crée un vide au-dessus du clitoris ou on exerce une aspiration sur le clitoris, de manière à créer une pression négative dans le clitoris qui est inférieure à la pression sanguine systolique. Ceci tend à favoriser l'engorgement sanguin du clitoris.
