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.

PVP Free En


GentleCath Glide™ catheters are the only hydrophilic catheters that are not made with PVP (polyvinylpyrrolidone). PVP is used in glue and is what makes catheters sticky when they dry.

No Sticking En

No sticking*

As coated catheters dry, they can become sticky which makes removal uncomfortable. With FeelClean™ Technology, it takes 39% less force to start removing than the leading coated catheter.*

Minimal Mess En

Minimal mess and residue*

Because FeelClean™ Technology locks in the hydrophilic properties and doesn’t require a coating, users can enjoy more comfort without the unpleasant mess or residue associated with coated catheters.
