The most versatile tip attachment with 3 different textures built in|||ARK's Probe Tip is the most versatile tip attachment for the Z-Vibe®. Its rectangular shape features three different surfaces: bumpy, striated, and smooth. Use it to provide varied sensory input to the gums, palate, cheeks, tongue, and lips. It can also be used to provide targeted tactile cues during oral motor therapy.

Caution: this therapeutic tool should be used under adult supervision at all times.
What is the difference between the standard and soft versions?
The standard Probe Tip is rigid, but still with some flex to it. The Soft Probe Tip is more flexible with more "give" to it. For that reason, we recommend the soft version for individuals who have a bite reflex. Some individuals with sensory issues also prefer the soft version, as it doesn't provide quite as much resistance (feedback) as the hard version.
What age do you recommend these for?
This can vary depending on the mouth size, but typically we recommend them for ages 2.5 years and up. For children under 2.5 years, we recommend the Mini Tip (same design, just smaller in size).
How exactly does the Probe Tip compare to the Mini Tip in size?
Their overall dimensions are the same. The head of the Probe Tip is larger than the Mini Tip (see the image below for a comparison). The Mini Tips can be found here.
