Releve Vaginal Splint

360° Support for Stress-Free Bowel Movements

Releve features a soft silicone balloon that inflates to support the vaginal walls, preventing bulges and pouches that could trap stool. Unlike traditional splinting devices with a rigid design, Releve conforms to your natural shape and is adjustable to your preferred size. Its unique design can address multiple forms of pelvic organ prolapse at the same time, making bowel movements easier and more complete with less strain.

How Does Releve Work?

Releve is user-controlled through a squeeze bulb and an air-release button. After inserting into the vagina, the user can adjust the balloon's size by inflating or deflating it according to their preference. The handle helps in optimally positioning the balloon for bowel movements and ensures that it stays in place. By occupying the vaginal space, Releve aids in preventing rectocele, cystocele, and other forms of pelvic organ prolapse, facilitating more efficient emptying with less strain. There is no need for forceful pressure against the herniated wall. After use, simply deflate, remove, clean, and store the device for future use.

How is Releve Different from Other Vaginal Splinting Devices?

Unlike rigid splinting devices, which can be difficult to insert, Releve's insertable portion is the size of a tampon. Users can inflate the device to their desired size, and when complete, the device deflates back to its original insertion size. By inflating the balloon to occupy the entire vagina, Releve eliminates the task of locating the hernia and, most importantly, allows users to relax during a bowel movement. Its curved handle ensures comfortable sitting during use.

Benefits of Using Releve

  • Reduced straining.
  • More complete bowel movements.
  • Less time spent on the commode.
  • Fewer trips to the bathroom.
  • Discreet, reusable, with immediate results.

Hear from Patients and Clinicians on their Experiences with Releve

I have been using Releve for about two years and feel that it fits its name very well. I have been intending to get surgery for rectocele repair, but have been too ill to undergo the procedure. Luckily, Releve has been able to tide me over until I can. I honestly don't know how I would live without it. I have tried other splinting devices, but they don't work for me. The fact that Releve forms to the shape of my particular body has made it much more effective than anything else. It was recommended to me by my physical therapist, and I am so glad she told me about it.

I'm also grateful for the fact that the Releve staff is so easy to work with and accommodating. I highly recommend this product to ladies who are probably at their wits' end, as I was.

The Releve device has been a game changer in my practice as a pelvic health physical therapist! It has already helped SO many of my patients with bowel dysfunction and prolapse, and there is nothing better. It is so refreshing to find an alternative to digital vaginal splinting, and something that is super easy and user friendly for my patients to operate.

The Releve team is also the best! They are always helpful and punctual any time that I need them. Top notch product and great team, I could not be happier with what they are doing for the pelvic health community!
