Question 3 of 9

Good dexterity

‘Dexterity' means the small movements of your fingers and hands. If you select ‘yes’ to good dexterity, your video guide will assume you can grip the catheter between your fingers. If this might be a problem for you, please select ‘no’.

Question 4 of 9


Select ‘yes’ if your stomach blocks your view of your genital area. Your video will then give you advice on how to make it easier for you to see what you’re doing properly.

Question 5 of 9

Preferred position

Choose the position you find most comfortable for cathing. Remember, you can always update your video and change your choice of position, if you want to try something else.

Question 6 of 9

Your catheter

Check the name on the packaging, carton or insert, if you’re not sure which GentleCath™ product you use.

Question 7 of 9

Type of tip

You can check this by looking at the tip of your catheter. Also, if ‘Tiemann’ or ‘Coudé’ is written on the packaging or carton you’re using a curved tip catheter.
