The company did had some trouble with the FDA warning BUT the device itself is very safe and effective to the people who use it. When you purchase the $495.00 PRESCRIPTION system it came with the a life time guarantee along with numerous tension tings. Yes you can go online and find systems that are similar and possibly from the same company (Augusta Medical Systems is the only Company that manufatcures and had Medicare billing privillages) but when you are buying from a different website you might not get all of the pieces that are supposed to come with it. Yes the componets are a little pricy but they are (for the most part) a multiple use system so you can use it more than once and as long as you are follwoing the directions and instructions that are given to you by the company thean you will have great luck with it. Like all things in life you have to want to make it work for you. It wont magically fix the issues but with time and patience it can help a male feel whole again.
