Chewy Tubes offer a safe, non-toxic surface for developing biting and chewing skills. Chewy Tubes are latex-free and lead-free. In addition, they do not contain PVC or phthalates.
Chewy Tubes are available in 4 fun and attractive colours. Yellow Chewy Tubes offer a smaller stem size for chewing while Red Chewy Tubes offer a slightly wider stem size. Chewy Tubes colours are all FDA compliant and CE marked.
Therapists may select Chewy Tubes for use in treatment of individuals who are developing initial oral motor skills, or rehabilitating the jaw after surgery, trauma or stroke.
Youngsters seeking additional proprioceptive input into the jaw may also like biting on Chewy Tubes.
Children with autism require professional supervision when using Chewy Tubes.
NOTE: Chewy Tubes are not recommended for use with children under 7 months of age.

Chewy Tubes should always be used with supervision. Assessment of the jaw is recommended prior to biting on Chewy Tubes. Patients should follow the recommendations of their therapist or caregiver when using Chewy Tubes.
