ARK's Bite Tube is a hollow chew tool with a different diameter on each end.  Use it as a safe outlet for anyone who needs to chew.  Hollow Bite Tubes can also be used as an oral motor tool to work on jaw strength and stability.

 

The tube-like extension is perfect for individuals who want their chew tool to "collapse" more, whether as a sensory chew and/or in feeding therapy.  As an oral motor tool, use the hollow Bite Tube to practice biting/chewing skills without the risk of choking, to build jaw strength and stability, and to exercise the mouth muscles.  Put puréed foods inside the hollow tube for functional biting/chewing practice - when the individual bites down, they will be rewarded with a taste of food.  The two different diameters allow you to work on varying jaw heights.  Because the hollow tube provides less resistance than solid chews like the Grabber, this is a great "starter" chew tool for individuals with very limited jaw strength. 

Each chew measures about 5" long overall, 1/2" in diameter on one end, and 3/8" in diameter on the other end.  It is hollow all the way through the core.  Like all ARK chews, the Bite Tube is available in Standard - This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not chew through anything) and/or those with limited jaw strength
