Chewy Tube - Yellow
The yellow Chewy Tube® is used with a smaller jaw, typically an infant or younger child, or it is used with an individual who cannot open his/her jaw very wide (clonus). In addition, the narrower, yellow, Chewy Tube® is used initially in treatment with children who are very defensive about oral tactile stimulation.
Chewy Tubes® are an innovative oral motor device designed to provide a resilient, non-food, chewable surface for practicing biting and chewing skills for children and adults.
They are used with adults in skilled nursing facilities to preserve biting and chewing skills. They are used in treatment post oral surgery to keep mobility in the TMJ and post radiation treatment for oral cancer to help prevent trismus from developing and they are used in other oral motor treatment applications in the adult population.
Intended for individual use, Chewy Tubes® are non-toxic, latex free and lead free. In addition they do not contain PVC or phthalates. Chewy Tubes® colors are FDA approved.
