How does FeelClean™ Technology work?

Only GentleCath™ Glide catheters have FeelClean™ Technology and are designed for a faster, cleaner and more comfortable cathing experience.

Traditional coated hydrophilic intermittent catheters are dipped into a coating and then left to "cure" ensuring the hydrophilic coating adheres to the outside surface of the catheter. Unlike these traditional catheters, GentleCath™ Glide catheters with FeelClean™ Technology have hydrophilic properties embedded into the actual catheter material. This means all surfaces of the catheter are hydrophilic, from the tip to the end.

Benefits of FeelClean™ Technology

FeelClean™ Technology embeds the hydrophilic additive into the catheter material; there is no coating cured to the surface of the catheter. Within a wet environment, it will continue to retain its hydrophilic properties.

Clock

Instant Activation

Some coated catheters have to be ‘soaked’ for up to 60 seconds before they are fully hydrated. As soon as the water hits a FeelClean™ catheter it is ready for use instantly.

Residue

No Stickiness When Dry

Some coated catheters may become sticky when they dry out. The hydrophilic properties of FeelClean™ are embedded into the actual catheter meaning no stickiness if the catheter dries out.

Droplets

Less Extracted Residue2

Our unique technology is designed to reduce the residuals and mess left behind by cathing. In in vitro testing, GentleCath™ catheters with FeelClean™ Technology had less extracted residue than competitive products tested. You can worry less about getting residue on your clothes, hands and body.
