ARK's Textured Bite Tube (Hollow)

ARK's Bite Tube is a hollow chew tool with a different diameter on each end.  Each end also has a different texture - bumps on one end and ribs on the other for lots of sensory input.  Use these Hollow Bite Tubes as a safe outlet for anyone who needs to chew and/or 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, 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.  Available in 3 colour-coded toughness levels:

  • Standard - This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not chew through anything) and/or those with limited jaw strength
  • XT / Medium Firm - This is the middle level, which we call XT ("Xtra Tough").  It's firmer, but still fairly chewy, recommended for moderate chewers
  • XXT / Very Firm - This is the toughest level, which we call XXT ("Xtra Xtra Tough").  It still has some “chewability” to it, but it’s fairly pretty firm (although not as firm/tough as our solid chews).  

Made in the USA by ARK Therapeutic.  Medical grade, FDA compliant, NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.  Each Sidekick is sold individually - choose your desired colour and toughness level. Exact colour hues may vary slightly.

*Caution: This product is not a toy.  Although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible.  Wear/tear may be expected given the nature of the intended use.  How long they last is typically equal to the amount and intensity of the chewing, as well as other variables (such as jaw strength, stress/anxiety levels, if other sensory strategies are in place, etc.).  While for some people a chew tool will last forever, for others with heavy/aggressive oral needs, they may go through it very quickly.  Please supervise at all times, regularly inspect the chew, and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear.
