1. A device comprising:

  • an extracorporeal shock wave apparatus, wherein the apparatus comprises;

    a housing configured to enclose a penis in a cavity bound by the housing, the housing including;

    a first opening configured to receive the penis into the cavity; and

    a substantially cylindrical inner surface extending longitudinally from the first opening, wherein a first inner surface portion of the substantially cylindrical inner surface is parallel to a second inner surface portion of the substantially cylindrical inner surface that opposes the first inner surface portion;

    a plurality of shock wave generators disposed on the substantially cylindrical inner surface of the housing, wherein;

    each shock wave generator of the plurality of generators is configured to generate a respective shock wave propagating within the cavity; and

    a first shock wave generator of the plurality of shock wave generators is disposed on the first inner surface portion and generates a plurality of shock waves perpendicularly away from the first inner surface portion and perpendicularly toward the second inner surface portion; and

    a coupling assembly covering the plurality of shock wave generators disposed over the plurality of shock wave generators such that the plurality of shock wave generators being sandwiched by the housing and the coupling assembly, wherein;

    the coupling assembly is configured to transmit the plurality of shock waves to the penis; and

    the coupling assembly includes a deformable sac configured to conform to a shape of the penis.
