ARK’s Z-Vibe is a vibratory oral motor tool that can help build oral tone and improve a variety of speech, feeding, and sensory skills. Use it to provide a varied sensory experience and/or to provide targeted tactile cues within the oral cavity. Its gentle vibration provides a new level of sensory stimulation to increase oral focus and draw more attention to the lips, tongue, cheeks, and jaw. Vibration can also be very calming, soothing, and organizing. The Z-Vibe®’s sleek, innovative design features a lightweight, plastic handle with gentle bumps around its circumference for a non-slip grip. This texture can also be brushed along the cheeks, arms, hands, etc. for additional tactile input. The handle comes with a blue Probe Tip on one end and a Switch Tip on the other. Use the Probe Tip for oral motor assessment and development. To turn the unit on, simply twist the Switch Tip at the opposite end of the handle just until the unit starts to vibrate (please do not over-tighten!). •Made in the USA, medical grade quality, FDA compliant •NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex •The Z-Vibe is sold here with 1 Probe Tip, other tips sold separately •Battery included (please note: this is a special Vibe Battery not sold in stores – we recommend buying a spare) •Measures approximately 6.5″ in length and less than half of an inch in diameter •Recommended for individuals of all ages and abilities under the guidance of a therapist or a trained caregiver Caution: the Z-Vibe is NOT a toy.
