Description

Chewy tubes are designed to provide a resilient, chewable surface for practicing biting and chewing skills as well as providing tactile oral motor stimulation. The chewies help improve jaw stability and provide valuable sensory input to the jaw. Chewy tubes are made of FDA approved material, are latex free, lead free and do not contain any PVC.

Chewy Tubes are available in four attractive colors:
  • Yellow Tube has a smaller stem size for chewing (3/8"diameter, 9 mm)
  • Red Tube offers a slightly wider stem size (1/2"diameter, 12mm)
  • Blue Tube offers a larger diameter stem size (for adults (5/8"diameter, 15 mm)
All chewy tubes are approx. 3" long. If a child cannot close the jaw in response to tactile stimulation, the larger size tube should be introduced first, with a transition to the narrower tube after more consistent and graded jaw closure is demonstrated. If a child demonstrates difficulty opening the jaw, start with the narrower tube and work your way up to the wider one. Chewy tubes are an effective tool for children with Sensory Processing disorder or those on the Autism Spectrum that tend to chew on clothes. The chewy tubes are a safe alternative for children with Autism. Chewy Tubes may be washed with soap and water. They are recommended for children 10 months and up.
