ARK’s Probe™ – Oral Motor Therapy Tool
ARK's Oral Motor Probe™ is designed by Debra Lowsky, MS, CCC-SLP, Speech and Language Pathologist. It is an excellent tool for oral motor and sensory development. The rectangular tip is bumpy on one side, striated on the other, and smooth along the edges. These textured surfaces provide tactile input, awareness, and sensation. Use the Probe to stimulate the gums, palate, lips, cheek, and tongue by tapping, stroking, and applying gentle pressure.
The white handle is rigid for an easy grip. The light blue tip is softer and is made from the same material as the ARK Grabber. It has more "give" so that it is gentle on the lips, cheeks, and tongue. The Probe is lightweight, compact, and portable. It is ideal for oral motor exercises, gum massage, and sensory stimulation and can be used at home, in therapy, or anywhere in between!
Please note that the Probe does not vibrate. For vibrating handles, please see our range of Z-Vibes
The Probe head measures approximately 2.1cm x 1cm x 1cm. This size is generally recommended for children aged 2 ½ years old and upwards. For younger children or smaller mouths use the proMini Tool instead.
Overall length is approximately 12.5cm
ONE Probe is supplied. Group photos are for illustrative purposes only. Colour hues may vary.
