Key Features of the GentleCath Glide

gentlecath glide hydrophilic catheterThe Glide is a recently launched low-friction hydrophilic catheter with options for both men and women that was specifically designed with FeelClean™ technology to reduce the mess left behind by lubrication after cathing. It’s a fast and easy option for those who want a comfortable, super-smooth catheterization experience from start to finish. Simply break the included water sachet to coat the catheter and activate the low-friction hydrophilic surface, and it’s ready to go with no additional waiting time. The No-Touch sleeve helps make insertion more simple and lessens the risk of contamination from your hands, which may also reduce the risk of infection.

  3. Let the water coat the entire tube from end to tip.
  4. Now, your GentleCath Glide is ready to use with no waiting or setting a timer!
  5. Open the package by peeling apart the easy-open tabs.
