Out of the 21 participants of the study, 16 were able to successfully complete the extender regimen and achieve results. What may have been the most surprising was the fact that results did not deteriorate once usage was stopped.

Recent clinical studies have indicated that penile extenders or traction devices can effectively be used as an alternative means to plastic surgery or augmentation. Conducted by the Canadian Journal of Phalloplasty in conjunction with X4 Labs Inc., the study finds that men who used traction devices achieved gains ranging between 32% and 36%.
The study analyzed the use of traction devices like the X4 Labs device on 21 patients ranging from 18-65. The results yielded were fairly promising indicating about a 32% increase in length and a 36% increase in penis width. While penis extenders had been previously shown to be effective on Peyronie's Disease patients, there was a lack of independent research on their efficiency in terms of increasing penis size.
Patients in the clinical study were required to use the device for 6 to 8 hours per day, for a period of 5 months. The medical stretcher produced by X4 Labs was to provide them with between 500g to 2000g of tension, what many urologist consider the required amount of stretch.
Lead researcher, Dr. Frank Clementine stated the following: "Out of the 21 participants of the study, 16 were able to successfully complete the extender regimen and achieve results. What may have been the most surprising was the fact that results did not deteriorate once usage was stopped."
These devices have been widely advertised; however, the research published in the March issue of the Canadian Journal of Phalloplasty substantiate the devices efficiency. Many doctors and urologists who may have previously shunned away from such devices, or the notion of penis enlargement in general, will very likely now be open to the notion of natural alternatives to surgery.
Finding of Research on the X4 Labs Device:
- Using the traction device for 6 to 8 hours per day provides permanent results, in both erect and flaccid length.
- 16 of the 21 patients included in the study, indicated an average increase of 32% in length and 36% in girth.
- Erectile strength is also increased with usage and treatment. Participants reported an average increase of 36% in erectile strength. (Measured via blood circulation and hardness)
- Correction of penile curvature and deformities in penis shape and size.
Dr. Clementine stated that "while there are a wide variety of treatments including girth and length enlarging surgery; penis extenders remain a cost-effective and low risk means of increasing penis size.
The initial study concludes by indicating a solid stance on the efficiency of the stretcher, increasing both flaccid and erect length. Further studies are to be conducted by a variety of medical journals, however; if these studies indicate similar results, the penis extender should used as the primary method for penile lengthening. This is particularly interesting, as it brings forth the potential for the expansion of an industry often touted as non-medical.
