Only GentleCath™ is powered by FeelClean™ Technology

Designed for a faster, cleaner and more comfortable cathing experience. 

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. With FeelClean™ Technology, GentleCath™ catheters have hydrophilic properties integrated within the catheter itself so you can enjoy no sticking and minimal mess.*
