The 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 surface of the catheter meaning no stickiness if the catheter dries out.

Droplets

Less extracted residue1

In in vitro testing, GentleCath™ catheters with FeelClean™ Technology had less extracted residue than competitive products tested; 87% of users rated this better than their usual catheter for cleanliness2.

How does FeelClean work?

Unlike traditional catheters that have a hydrophilic coating applied to the outside, FeelClean™ Technology embeds the hydrophilic additive into the catheter material. This means all surfaces of the catheter are hydrophilic, from the tip to the end.

FeelClean™, exclusive to Gentlecath™

Only our catheters have FeelClean™, designed for convenient, low friction hydrophilic cathing, with less messy residues3.

Traditional coated hydrophilic catheters are dipped into a coating which is then left to cure ensuring the hydrophilic coating adheres to the outside surface of the catheter. FeelClean™ catheters are made differently.

Only GentleCath™ products have this technology. Learn more about GentleCath™ Glide.
