NEW YORK, US (Dec 14) – Competitive Technologies, announced that it has obtained exclusive rights to a new bicycle seat technology. The patent pending technology encompasses a bicycle saddle designed to minimize erectile dysfunction in men as well as sexual dysfunction in women.
Bicycle seat neuropathy is one of the most common injuries reported by cyclists and can lead to sexual dysfunction. Such dysfunction is proven to occur twice as often in cyclists as it is in non-cyclists, according to the results of a study recently published in an article, entitled “Research Shows Higher Incidence of Erectile Dysfunction in Cyclists” in Bicycle Retailer & Industry News.
“I never imagined that biking could jeopardize sexual health until meeting recreational riders who suffered permanent damage. Sexual health is compromised by bicycle seats which put pressure on arteries and nerves that provide blood and sensation. To eliminate this threat, I designed a seat that removed the rider’s weight off critical areas while still permitting full control of the bike,” said inventor Doug Webler.
“There are numerous studies showing that existing bicycle seats can cause sexual dysfunction in cyclists,” said Suzanne N. B. Alent, CTT’s Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, “and we believe this new technology will help alleviate the problem by providing a safer saddle.”
Ted Kutrumbos, Business Development Executive for CTT added, “We are excited about this technology, especially in light of the fact that the public is recognizing the potential danger posed for cyclists. We are in discussions with several of the world’s largest bike and seat manufacturers and are encouraged with their level of interest.”
