The RELIABLE condom catheter

Medical Design Excellence Awards-2008 Winner


  1. Remove both plastic liners from the GelStrip™ adhesive gel and place the GelStrip™ on the surface of the penis behind the glans. While applying a slight tension to the GelStrip™, wrap it completely around the outside of the penis. Overlap the GelStrip™ and press it into place around the penis —DO NOT CUT!

    NOTE: application method for our condom catheter gelstrips differs for non-circumcised males. The foreskin must first be pulled forward over the glans of the penis before the GelStrip™ is wrapped around the penis behind the glans!

    Instructions step 1.
  2. Place the head of the penis into the open end of the condom catheter. Unroll the condom catheter onto the penis, over, and all the way across the GelStrip™ until the rolled end of the external condom catheter is behind the edge of the GelStrip™ nearest your body. Squeeze the condom around the circumference of the GelStrip™ to ensure complete contact and a good seal.

    Instructions step 2.
  3. Remove the protective liner from the SecureStrip™. Center the tape on the outside GelStrip™ “Bump” surface of the condom over the GelStrip™ “Bump.” While applying a slight tension to the tape, wrap it completely around the outside of the condom – DO NOT CUT! This is one of the most common errors in application. Slight tension must be applied with the SecureStrip to ensure that the device will stay on effectively.

    CAUTION: Do not wrap so tight as to restrict the flow of urine or blood.

    Instructions step 3.
  4. To disconnect the Integral Collection Pouch from the GeeWhiz, grasp the end of the GeeWhiz and, while squeezing both ribbed edges on the female connector attached to the pouch, pull the connector off of the male nozzle attached to the GeeWhiz.
