GentleCath and me+ Program by Convatec
GentleCath™ catheters and support tools offered in the GentleCath me+ Program are designed to make catheterization safer, easier, more hygienic, and less stressful. Only GentleCath™ intermittent catheters feature FeelClean Technology. This unique process helps make self-catheterization more comfortable and less messy.
GentleCath™ designed their GentleCath™ Glide intermittent catheters with innovative and advanced technology to transform their users’ intermittent catheterization experience. GentleCath™ Glide catheters with FeelClean™ Technology are designed to finally offer a clean and comfortable catheterization experience without the mess, drying out, and sticky situations.
When GentleCath™ Glide catheters are manufactured, the FeelClean™ Technology additive is embedded into the catheter material itself. Whereas traditional hydrophilic catheters are dipped into a cured surface coating. GentleCath™ Glide catheters’ hydrophilic properties are in every part of the tube’s material.
Features and Benefits of FeelClean Technology
Activation is Instant
There is no need to wait for the GentleCath™ catheters to be activated due to FeelClean Technology. Unlike some other hydrophilic catheters that require soaking in order to become fully hydrated, GentleCath™ catheters are ready to use right when you need them.
Hydrophilic Properties are Maintained
Because of FeelClean Technology, GentleCath™ Glide catheters maintain their hydrophilic properties. The full length of the catheter is embedded with this innovative technology so that it maintains hydrophilic properties within a wet environment. This provides a more smooth, safe, and more comfortable catheterization experience.
No Stickiness or Drying Out
The GentleCath™ Glide catheters will not dry out or become sticky since the FeelClean Technology is embedded into the catheter material itself. From start to finish, GentleCath™ Glide catheters remain smooth for the entire catheterization process.
With FeelClean Technology, there is no more worrying about getting a mess on your hands, body, and clothing. ConvaTec went the extra mile to make sure that their GentleCath™ Glide catheters leave less residue behind than other competitor products.
How FeelClean Technology Works
The Four GentleCath™ Intermittent Catheters
1. GentleCath™ Glide Catheter
This less messy option makes catheterization a fast and easy experience. GentleCath™ Glide catheters feature a handling sleeve for touchless cathing, and because of the FeelClean Technology, they are low-friction and ready to use right out of the packaging. They are also free of DEHP, a plastic softener that may be linked to cancer and reduced fertility, so they are a safe option.
2. GentleCath™ Hydrophilic Catheter
The GentleCath™ Hydrophilic Catheter has a water sachet that activates the costing once it is "popped." This catheter also allows for a touch-free catheterization experience with its handling strip, reducing the risk of possible infection.
3. GentleCath™ Uncoated Catheter
The soft, rounded tip and polished eyelets of the GentleCath™ Uncoated Catheter make insertion and removal smooth and easy to help minimize friction. This intermittent catheter is available in both straight and coudé tips.
