The Chewy Tubes are created from a durable, non-toxic plastic that is PVC-free and Phthalates-free, and their colors have been FDA approved to be safe for use in the mouth. While intended for individual use, they can last over thousands of chews and are durable enough for long-term use with adult supervision.
There are a number of Chewy Tube designs, each with their own purpose. Yellow Chewy Tubes have a smaller stem and are suitable for younger children, as are the Red Chewy Tubes, which are a little larger but work well for toddlers. Blue Chewy Tubers are larger and perfect for adolescents and adults, while the Green Chewy Tube has additional bumps for increased sensory input. The entire collection is perfect for any rehabilitation program offered by speech pathologists and nurses.
Chewy Tubes can be used by therapists, nurses, and parents to help stimulate oral activity and to help with jaw rehabilitation in children and adults. They are easy to use, safe, and can help develop chewing and biting skills in those who need assistance and rehabilitation
