Ark's Bite Tupe Tip Combo (1 hart og slétt, 1 hart með áferð, 1 mjúkt með áferð)
Developed in partnership with Shari Martin, OTR/L, ARK's Bite Tube Tip 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. Place the tip on the side of the mouth in between the pre-molars or molars. Or, place it along the full length of the molar surface to one side. When the individual bites down, he or she will be rewarded with food! 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.
Set includes: 1 Hard Bite Tube Tip, 1 Hard Textured Bite Tube Tip, and 1 Soft Textured Bite Tube Tip. For individuals with oral defensiveness, start with the smooth tip and gradually progress to the textured ones. For individuals with a weak bite, start with the soft tip and progress to the hard ones. For individuals who need more proprioceptive input to the mouth, the hard textured one provides both tactile input and added resistance. Use any of these tips to improve chewing motion and jaw strength. If desired, they can be trimmed for a shorter length.
