Improving the lives of the people we touch

 
ConvaTec is a global medical products and technologies company focused on therapies for the management of chronic conditions, with leading market positions in advanced wound care, ostomy care, continence and critical care, and infusion devices.

As leaders in continence care for over 30 years, ConvaTec are constantly looking for ways to improve the users' experience. In 2018, they launched GentleCath™, a range of intermittent catheters with unique FeelClean™ Technology designed to make catheterising as simple and convenient as possible.

Gentle Cath
GentleCath™ Glide is designed to make catheterising as simple and convenient as possible. The smooth, slippery surface is designed to make catheterising easier and the no-touch handling sleeve helps to prevent contamination of the catheter with bacteria from the hands. Users can start catheterising as soon as they break the water sachet and wet the length of the catheter.
Amcare group
The Amcare™ Group are dedicated providers of support services to the continence community. We respect the care plan you’ve put in place for your patients. We support with a discreet, reliable home delivery service to any address requested. Our ordering process is complimented with caring advice, built on years of experience working in partnership with medical professionals and patients.
Feel clean logo
GentleCath™ Glide has unique FeelClean™ Technology. Unlike other catheters, the hydrophilic additive is embedded into the actual catheter meaning there is no coating cured to the surface of the catheter. This means there is no stickiness when the catheter dries out and less extracted residue1. FeelClean™ Technology is designed for a comfortable catheterising experience.
