Chewy Tubes are innovative oral motor devices designed to provide a resilient, non-food, chewable surface for practising biting and chewing skills. Chewy Tubes have been designed to be used with the Jaw Rehabilitation Programme, a patented methodology 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
Chewy Tubes are available in 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 are offered for tactile input at the location of the molar dentition/molar gum region as follows:
1. Present one Chewy Tube laterally into the mouth.
2. Touch the stem of the Chewy Tube to the cutting surface of the molar teeth/gum.
3. Help improve jaw stability and provide valuable sensory input into the jaw through biting on the Chewy Tube.
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.
P & Q Chewing Aids:
P & Q Chewing Aids provide more resistance than the Chewy Tubes, as they do not easily compress when chewing or biting takes place.
The Super Chew was developed to increase the range of Chewy Tube brand products available to develop biting and chewing skills. The Super Chew is a variant of Chewy Tube that offers a variety of features that complement those found in other Chewy Tubes.
First, the Super Chew is solid rather than hollow. This feature gives the Super Chew greater rigidity and consequently greater resistance to chewing than do Chewy Tubes that are hollow.
Second, the Super Chew features a closed loop handle to facilitate a secure grip on the product when in use. This feature is especially useful to individuals lacking fine motor skills in the hands and fingers
The Super Chew is available in two varieties. The Green Super Chew is smooth and offers a uniform surface for practising biting and chewing skills. The Red Super Chew is textured and can be used both for biting and chewing exercises as well as enhancing tactile stimulation for sensory integration. Super Chews enhance the variety
of Chewy Tubes available, based on the patient’s needs.
