Ark's Textured Hollow P Grabber® Chew
ARK's Textured Hollow Grabber® is a textured version of the innovative P shape design but has a hollow stem which can reach the back-molar area. The Hollow Grabber® has an easy-to-hold loop and features 3 different surfaces to chew on: one smooth, one with circular bumps, and one with rectangular bumps. These textures simulate the feel of actual food for realistic non-food chewing practice.
This hollow chew is useful for when “collapsible” oral feedback is required - Ideal for feeding therapy, biting and chewing practice. You can also place puréed foods inside the tube so that the user gets a taste of food when they bite down.
***Important note- because it is hollow, the extension will feel much softer than other ARK chews in the same level***
If your child throws things then the Grabber chew can be secured to belts, bags, harnesses etc using a chewigem chewipal (purchase separately).
The chew adds extra tactile sensation to the lips, cheeks, gums, and tongue to help desensitise the mouth, can decrease oral defensiveness/aversions, and transition individuals with sensory issues from puréed to textured foods.
ARK Grabber® comes in 3 colour-coded toughness levels:
- Standard (Yellow) - These are the softest ones with the most “squishiness” and “give” to them. Recommended for mild chewers and/or beginners practising biting/chewing skills
- Medium Firm / XT (Blue) - XT stands for "Xtra Tough," recommended for moderate chewing. These are firmer, but still chewy.
- Very Firm / XXT (Orange) - XXT stands for "Xtra Xtra Tough," recommended for more avid chewing. These are the most firm and provide the most resistance to the jaw. No chew tool is indestructible, but these are very tough.
* One grabber supplied-please choose colour/toughness.
* Measures approximately 13 cm lengthwise, just under 5 cm across the loop, and half an inch thick.
N.B Screen resolutions vary so the colours may be slightly different.
