According to Mr. Osbon, “our direct clinical experience as educators and trainers within Urology clinics in 50 states around the country is what created Soma Therapy-ED™. We simply listened and learned from men using vacuum therapy products to drive product innovation. Augusta Medical Systems has effectively channeled learning and feedback into improving erectile dysfunction patient outcomes with vacuum therapy. As designers and manufacturers, clinical experience has been the key to driving significant improvements beyond the original design.”

Soma Therapy-ED™ is considered the best in class medical grade erectile dysfunction pump because it was created “for men suffering from erectile dysfunction,” “by men suffering from erectile dysfunction.” Augusta Medical Systems products are available throughout the world. The company is excited that men can now purchase our devices in the United States without a prescription!
