Chewy Tubes are innovative oral motor devices designed to provide a resilient, non-food, chewable surface for practicing biting and chewing skills. Chewy Tubes have been designed to be used with the new Jaw Rehabilitation Programme, a patented methodology offered by Speech Pathology Associates LLC, to develop jaw motion for biting and chewing skills.
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.

Red - offer a slightly wider stem size.
Blue - 75% thicker than red or yellow Chewy Tubes
Green - designed to increase sensory input
Super Red - offer a slightly wider stem size.
Super Green - offer a slightly wider stem size.
Chewy Tubes colours are all FDA compliant and CE marked.
Chewy Tubes are offered to children and adults as a safe and effective tool for practising biting and chewing skills.
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.
NOTE: Chewy Tubes are not recommended for use with children under 9 months of age.
P & Q Chewing Aids provide provide more resistance than the Chewy Tubes, as they do not easily compress when chewing or biting takes place.
