According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 140 million women worldwide suffer from vaginal tearing, genital herpes, bacterial vaginosis, vaginal atrophy, and other conditions. These conditions can cause excruciating pain when urinating, often leading to a consequential fear of urination.

That’s where Alivio comes in. Alivio gives women the freedom to live normally without worrying about their condition.

Rebecca Hjorth, Founder and President of RH Medical Design Company created Alivio. Ms. Hjorth. “Urination can be excruciatingly painful for women with these conditions. And finding a solution has been difficult. That’s why I created Alivio.”

Alivio is a small disposable device that funnels urine from the body away from the vagina minimizing contact with sores. Alivio minimizes the surface area exposed to urine, alleviating and sometimes eliminating pain. In other words, it makes going to the bathroom much less painful for women with these conditions.
