ARK Therapeutic Z-Vibe Vibrating Oral Motor Tool
The Z-Vibe is a vibratory oral motor tool that helps build oral tone to 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 draws more attention to the lips, tongue, cheeks, and jaw. Vibration can also be very calming, soothing, and organizing.
Benefits to using the Z-Vibe
Increases oral awareness and motor skills which are needed to make sounds
Decreases oral sensitivities and feeding aversions by gently introducing texture
The vibration can calm and soothe the user
Teaches biting and chewing skills using the different accompanying tips
Helps improve oral hygiene
The Z-Vibe's sleek, innovative design features a lightweight, plastic hand piece 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).
Designed with versatility in mind, there are over 35 (and counting!) tip attachments available in various scents, sizes, textures, and resilience. From spoons to toothbrushes to pencils and more, the same handle can shift goals simply by switching out one tip for another.
The Z-Vibe is NOT a toy. It is a therapeutic tool intended to be used by a professional therapist (or by parents trained by their therapist). It contains small parts (including a battery) that may pose a choking hazard: direct adult supervision is required at all times.
Ordering and shipping
The Z-Vibe is sold with one ARK Probe Tip. Other tips are sold separately. All tips for the Z-Vibe are compatible. Battery included. To turn the unit on, twist the Switch Tip into the handle *just* until it starts to vibrate (please do not over tighten!).
