What is BladderVoid?
BladderVoid is a medically patented device designed by doctors to deliver soothing heat to the muscles and nerves in the genital region to help stimulate the urge to urinate and to help empty the bladder completely.
How Does BladderVoid work?
The bladder is made of muscles. There are also muscles at the neck of the urethra that control the flow of urine from the bladder. When the BladderVoid hot pack is applied, the muscles relax, allowing urine to flow freely and for a complete void of the bladder.
