  • Ark's Bite Tube Tips


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.


    Developed in partnership with Shari Martin, OTR/L, ARK's Bite Tube Tip for the Z-Vibe® is specially designed for targeted, functional biting and chewing practice.  It's much like the Bite-n-Chew Tip XL, only with a hollow center for food. Simply fill the tube with soft foods, such as applesauce, yogurt, stage 1 baby foods, etc.   Use the Bite Tube Tip to establish the concept of needing to bite and chew to eat food. It's also an excellent way to incorporate real food as you practice the motor planning of eating skills. We have the Bite Tube Tip comes in two different versions: 
    Hard Textured (blue), 
    Soft Smooth (lavender)
    For individuals with a weak bite, start with the soft tip and progress to the hard tip. For individuals who need more proprioceptive input to the mouth, the texture provides both tactile input and added resistance. Use these tips to improve chewing motion and jaw strength. If desired, they can be trimmed for a shorter length.

  • Z Grabber


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.

    Get the best of both worlds with ARK's Z Grabber™ - an innovative oral motor tool that combines the benefits of both the Z Vibe and the Grabber. Enjoy all the versatility of the Z-Vibe® and its many interchangeable tips plus the added bonus of a chewable "Grabber" loop attached to the plastic handle. For children who crave vibration and sensory stimulation from the Z Vibe®, use the Z Grabber™ to transition them into working on biting and chewing skills with the textured tip and chewable loop. For children who enjoy tactile input from the Grabbers, use the Z Grabber™ for added sensory input and to transition them into using the various tips of the Z Vibe® to work on speech and feeding skills. The loop can also be used as a handle for added convenience. 
    Why Vibration?
    Most people are either auditory or visual learners. Sometimes, however, these two senses are not enough, and we must look to other options, such as the sense of touch. Speech-Language Pathologists have been trained to use tactile input to teach individuals how to lateralize their tongue, elevate their tongue tip, make a tongue bowl, close their lips, learn a rotary chew, position the articulators for sound production, and various other oral motor skills. The Z-Grabber™ is a tool to help therapists work on these skills in and around the mouth. It can always be used in the off position without vibration. Or, it can be turned on for additional sensory input with its smooth, gentle vibrations. Vibration provides a new level of sensory stimulation to increase awareness and to draw more acute attention to the articulators. Many individuals also find vibration to be calming and soothing.
     

    The Z-Grabber™ is sold with an extra large bite'n'chew tip. All tips for the Z-Vibe are also compatible with the Z-Grabber. We have included the option to add the brush tips at a discounted price as this is great help for children with hypersensitivity making tooth brushing traumatic. Battery included (this is a special Z Vibe battery not sold in stores).

    MADE in the USA out of medical grade, FDA compliant materials that contain NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. Caution: this therapeutic tool should be used under adult supervision at all times. When changing tips and/or the battery, please use caution as the unit contains small parts that pose a choking hazard.
