Lasts for thousands of chews!
Chewy Tubes® are an innovative oral motor device designed to provide a resilient, non-food, chewable surface for practicing biting and chewing skills. Intended for individual use, Chewy Tubes are non-toxic, latex free and lead free. In addition they do not contain PVC or phthalates and their colors are FDA-approved.
To use, the long stem (3/8″ diameter) is placed laterally in the mouth, so the user can bite down on the stem. The handle portion has corrugated ridges to assist with grasping. The yellow Chewy Tube is used for individuals with a smaller jaw – typically an infant (9-10 months) or a younger child, or for an individual who cannot open his/her jaw very wide. In addition, the narrower, yellow Chewy Tube is used initially in treatment with children who are very defensive about oral tactile stimulation.
Chewy Tubes last for thousands of chews. However, inspection is recommended before each use. Replace when signs of wear become visible. Washable with soap and water.
