ARK's Grabber® P Tube
Color & Toughness: orange, XXT
ARK's Grabber® P Tube is just like the original Grabber, but about 5cm of the stem is hollow instead of solid.The tube-like stem is perfect for individuals who want their chew tool to "collapse" more, whether as a sensory chew and/or in feeding therapy. As an oral motor tool, use it to practice biting/chewing skills without the risk of choking, build jaw strength and stability, and exercise the mouth muscles.Put puréed foods inside the tube for functional biting/chewing practice so that the individual gets a taste of food when they bite down. Because the hollow tube provides less resistance than the solid original Grabbers, this is a great "starter" chew tool for individuals with very limited jaw strength.Like all ARK chews, it comes in 3 color-coded toughness levels: Standard - This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewing and/or individuals with very limited jaw strengthXT / Medium Firm - This is the middle level, which we call XT ("Xtra Tough"). It's firmer, but still fairly chewy.XXT / Very Firm - This is the toughest level, which we call XXT ("Xtra Xtra Tough"). This level provides the most resistance/feedback to the jaw.**Important note: because it is hollow, the extension will feel much softer than other ARK chews in the same level** Each Grabber® measures about 5cm across the loop, 13cm long, and 1,3cm thick. Please note: these hollow chews are not recommended as a long lasting option for avid/aggressive chewers. Check out any other solid chews for longer lasting options.Caution: This product is not a toy. Recommended for children 2.5 years and up. Although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible. Wear/tear may be expected given the nature of the intended use. How long they last is typically equal to the amount and intensity of the chewing, as well as other variables (such as jaw strength, stress/anxiety levels, if other sensory strategies are in place, etc.). While for some people a chew tool will last forever, for others with heavy/aggressive oral needs, they may go through it very quickly. Please supervise at all times, regularly inspect the chew, and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear.

ARK's Z-Vibe Animal Kit
ARK's animal tips for the Z-Vibe® or Z-Grabber® are the ultimate tool for sensory-based oral motor therapy.Especially for children in early intervention. The friendly faces of the animals immediately arouse curiosity, improve concentration and increase the child's will to participate in therapy. Each attachment has a variety of shapes and surfaces for sensory input within the mouth and around the lips and face.LOGICANA recommends:Use the non-smooth ears as spoons to reduce aversion to different textures of foods. The chewing blocks on the back are good for working on jaw graduation or jaw stability.The animals measure approximately 5cm from ear to ear. Included in ARK's Animal Kit:1x Z-Vibe in blue1x mouse tip,1x dog tip1x cat tip and a storage box (transparent).You save 20% compared to the single price! Attention: The Z-Vibe is NOT a toy. It is a therapeutic tool that should be used by a professional therapist (or by parents who have been trained by their therapist). It contains small parts (including a battery) that may pose a choking hazard: Direct adult supervision is required at all times.

ARK's Flower Chew Necklace
Color & Toughness: lavender, XXT
ARK's Flower Chew Necklace is budding with possibilities! This fun floral shape is a robust chew necklace for anyone who needs to chew. Each pendant measures about 5cm at the widest part and 2,5cm in thickness - a great option for chewing with your front teeth (for more slender options that reach the back molars, click here). Because this is a more robust shape, it's also a good option for tougher chewers. Use it as a safe alternative to chewing on pencils, shirts, fingers, etc. and to help calm, focus, and self-regulate.Like all ARK chewelry, it's made in USA and is available in 3 color-coded toughness levels:Standard - This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not chew through anything). XT / Medium Firm - This is the middle level, which we call XT ("Xtra Tough"). It's firmer, but still fairly chewy, recommended for moderate chewers.XXT / Very Firm - This is the toughest level, which we call XXT ("Xtra Xtra Tough"). It still has some “chewability” to it, but it’s fairly rigid / pretty firm. No chew tool is indestructible, but this is usually the longest lasting level for avid chewers.Please note: because it has a more robust shape, each level of the Flower will feel tougher than the same toughness level in one of our more slender shapes. So for example, if you like the Krypto-Bite® in the middle XT level, you may want to "size down" a toughness level and order the Flower in standard. Medical grade, FDA compliant, NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.Caution: This product is not a toy. The clasp and cord are not intended for chewing. Contains small parts that may pose a choking hazard - direct supervision required. Recommended for ages 5 years and up. Although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible. Wear/tear may be expected given the nature of the intended use. How long they last is typically equal to the amount and intensity of the chewing, as well as other variables (such as jaw strength, stress/anxiety levels, if other sensory strategies are in place, etc.). While for some people a chew tool will last forever, for others with heavy/aggressive oral needs, they may go through it very quickly.

Roll it along the Ulnar nerve, across the facial muscles, around the TMJ muscles to relax tooth grinders, around the knuckles for individuals with arthritis, etc. Please note: this tip is for proprioceptive input and sensory stimulation outside of the mouth - this tip should NOT be used inside the mouth. Made in the USAMeasures approximately 3,8 cm x 1 cm Sold individuallyCompatible with the Z-Vibe or Z-Grabber (sold separately). Not compatible with the original Z-Vibe that has only one threaded end.Please note: When used with vibration, the stainless steel ball will move/rattle against the plastic.

This wand is a handheld chew and does not come on a cord, but it does have a hole on both ends in case you'd like to add one.Please note: because of geometry, in any toughness level, the star end will feel firmer than the handle (because the handle is slimmer). Also, please note that by nature, the standard/softest level will have a little "wiggle" to it when doing fairy magic or knighting young princes. The tougher the level, the more rigidity it will have.Designed, manufactured, and assembled in the USA by ARK Therapeutic.

The Right Bite
Take a bite out of feeding therapy with the Right Bite!For individuals with feeding issues, the ability to visually judge food and take an appropriately sized bite can be a difficult task. Invented by Jaci Dale, MS, CCC-SLP and developed by ARK Therapeutic, the Right Bite solves this problem by allowing you to present a prescribed, manageable amount of food to the individual. Simply slide a cookie, cracker, cucumber slice, or the like into the opening until it protrudes from the semi-circle opening. Then offer the Right Bite to the individual and instruct him/her to "take a bite." Since only a portion of the food is presented at a time, the Right Bite encourages appropriate bite sizes, prevents mouth stuffing, and paces the rate of eating to allow for adequate chewing time. For jaw grading and control, use food items of various thicknesses and practice gauging how far to open the mouth for each food item. No matter what your goal is, the Right Bite eliminates the risk of the therapist/caregiver being bitten during feeding therapy. Furthermore, being presented with a prescribed bite decreases the visual sensory concerns that some individuals may have with large pieces of food. Made in the USA, medical grade, FDA compliantNo lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. The Right Bite is recommended for individuals of all agesMeasures roughly 10 x 5cm with a bite opening of 3,5 x 1,5cmSold individuallyDishwasher-safe

Therapy needs for malocclusions

The issue of misaligned teeth and braces affects more and more families these days. Through early intervention and education of families, some braces could be prevented. And more importantly, repeat orthodontic intervention can often be avoided through myofunctional therapy.  It can often be difficult to find the right ones in the jungle of products. On Logicana, for example, there are bite rings that are recommended in the special case of an open bite or myospots that help to adopt and learn the correct tongue rest position. Other products that support the malocclusions can be found here.

The use of the tongue muscles

Is crucial for the development of the jaw. If the tongue lies against the palate at rest and during swallowing, the muscles of the tongue act on the upper jaw bones. In this way, the dental arch and the palate are formed around the tongue and malocclusions can be prevented at an early stage, or the growth of the jaw can be supported. Would you like to automate the correct tongue rest position? With the Myospots from our online store you have made the right choice. The little helpers on the palate support you in learning and automating the correct tongue rest position.

What factors have a negative impact on the development of the face?

Thumb sucking, excessive pacifier use, continuous mouth breathing, incorrect tongue rest position, fingernail biting and other harmful habits such as bruxism (teeth grinding), biting cheeks or tongue, etc. affect facial growth. Therefore, it is our concern to make speech therapy for orofacial myofunctional disorders colorful with innovative therapy materials. Thumb suckers or children who use the pacifier for too long often suffer from an open bite. Individuals who frequently chew on their tongues or cheeks are often found in practices with a cross bite. And mouth breathers often develop a narrow face shape, tired eyes and also different tooth misalignments.
