Credé's method (maneuver)[krĕ-dāz´]
a technique for manual expression of urine from the bladder used in bladder training for paralyzed patients: the hands are held flat against the abdomen, just below the umbilicus. A firm downward stroke toward the bladder is repeated six or seven times, followed by pressure from both hands placed directly over the bladder to manually remove all urine.
