Thank you for designing such wonderful oral motor tools."
SALE! Regular price: $29.99
Get the best of both worlds with ARK's Z-Grabber™ - an innovative oral motor tool that combines the benefits of both the DnZ-Vibe® and the Grabber®. Enjoy all the versatility of the DnZ-Vibe® and its over 30 interchangeable tips plus the added bonus of a chewable "Grabber" loop attached to the plastic handle.
For individuals who crave vibration and sensory stimulation from the DnZ-Vibe®, use the Z-Grabber™ to transition them into working on biting and chewing skills with the textured tip and chewable loop. For individuals who enjoy tactile input from the Grabber®, use the Z-Grabber™ for added sensory input and to transition them into using the various tips of the DnZ-Vibe® to work on speech and feeding skills. The loop can also be used as a handle for added convenience.
Most people are either auditory or visual learners. Sometimes, however, these two senses are not enough, and we must look to other options, such as the sense of touch. Speech-Language Pathologists have been trained to use tactile input to teach individuals how to lateralize their tongue, elevate their tongue tip, make a tongue bowl, close their lips, learn a rotary chew, position the articulators for sound production, and various other oral motor skills. The Z-Grabber™ is a tool to help therapists work on these skills in and around the mouth. It can always be used in the off position without vibration. Or, it can be turned on for additional sensory input with its smooth, gentle vibrations. Vibration provides a new level of sensory stimulation to increase awareness and to draw more acute attention to the articulators. Many individuals also find vibration to be calming and soothing.
The Z-Grabber™ is sold with one Textured Bite-n-Chew Tip XL and one Switch Tip. Other tips sold separately. All tips for the Z-Vibe and DnZ-Vibe are compatible with the Z-Grabber. Battery included (this is a special Vibe Battery not sold in stores - we recommend buying a spare).
MADE in the USA out of medical grade, FDA compliant materials that contain NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.
Caution: this therapeutic tool should be used under adult supervision at all times. When changing tips and/or the battery, please use caution as the unit contains small parts that pose a choking hazard.

|Reviewer: Lyana (Shirley, Ny)|
I purchased this item for my daughter (2yr) to reinforce what the therapist does with her. Before she eats, we use it to massage her cheeks and around her mouth. We use the tip it came with to bite down on, and also for waking up the tongue. With the handle its easy for her to hold and she really enjoys not thinking of it as "work" at all!
