Designed For You 2

Designed for you

Awarded the iF Design Award for an innovative design that was seen to blend perfectly into women’s day-to-day lives.

Simple And Discreet 2

Simple and discreet

All features of GC Air™ have been finely tuned to meet the needs of women cathing on the go – for example, the sleek case has a lid that screws back on after use, so you can seal your used catheter inside and throw it away when you can.

Helps Prevent Contamination 2

Helps prevent contamination

When cathing, bacteria from your hands can get on the catheter, which can cause infections. The easy-to-grip FreshSleeve™ on GC Air™ means you never need to touch the catheter tube itself – this helps to minimise the risk of contaminating your catheter with bacteria.

Switching is simple.

How does it work?

Feelclean Technology

FeelClean™ Technology

GC Air™ uses unique technology to achieve its smooth, slippery surface. We call this ‘FeelClean™ Technology’

But…how exactly does “FeelClean™ Technology” work?

Many catheters have a hydrophilic coating. ‘Hydrophilic’ means a substance that draws water towards it, like a magnet. The water drawn towards the coating makes it slippery, creating a sterile lubricant.

However, as the coating dries it can become sticky. This can cause discomfort as you insert or remove your catheter.

So, instead of a hydrophilic coating, FeelClean™ Technology uses hydrophilic properties that are embedded inside the catheter. The catheter surface then draws water towards it to create a smooth, well-lubricated surface.

FeelClean™ Technology in GC Air™

GC Air™ contains a small water chamber inside the case, which the catheter is pulled through as you remove it. This activates the FeelClean™ Technology so your catheter has a smooth surface and is ready to use.

Freshsleeve (1)

FreshSleeve™ helps prevent contamination

When cathing, bacteria from your hands can get on to the catheter and cause infections. To help minimise the risk of contaminating the catheter, the GC Air™ catheter tube is covered by FreshSleeve™. 

Attached to the sleeve is the GuideTip™, designed to be easy to grip and use.
