Zhenxi Circumcision Ring
(Weihai Zhenxi Medical Equipment Corporation)

The Weihai Zhenxi Medical Equipment Corporation was a South Korean company with facilities in the Shandong province of the People’s Republic of China, specializing in the manufacture and supply of circumcision rings for men. The company seems to no longer be in business, which is a very good thing. The devices were clearly marketed for self-circumcisions. The consequences could be dire (see below).

Although their websites (now gone) carried token warnings that medical supervision was recommended, the emphasis was that this device was suitable for self-circumcision. This was a part of its marketing in both Korea and Europe. A correspondent to Circlist was ill-advised enough to try this, with disastrous results. One of his comments was that it required more than one pair of hands! He ended up having the mess rectified (successfully) by a surgeon. Other websites have similar scary tales - see this one in BME (Body Modification E-zine).
