A vibrating oral motor tool that can help build oral tone and improve a variety of speech, feeding, and sensory skills.

Use it to provide a varied sensory experience and/or to provide targeted tactile cues within the oral cavity. 

Its gentle vibration provides a new level of sensory stimulation to increase oral focus and draw more attention to the lips, tongue, cheeks, and jaw. Vibration can also be very calming, soothing, and organizing.

The Z-Vibe®'s sleek, innovative design features a lightweight, plastic hand piece with gentle bumps around its circumference for a non-slip grip. This texture can also be brushed along the cheeks, arms, hands, etc. for additional tactile input. 

The handle comes with a blue Probe Tip on one end and a Switch Tip on the other. 

Use the Probe Tip for oral motor assessment and development. To turn the unit on, simply twist the Switch Tip at the opposite end of the handle just until the unit starts to vibrate (please do not over-tighten). 

Designed with versatility in mind, there are over 35 tip attachments available in various sizes, textures, and resiliencies. From spoons to toothbrushes to pencils and more, the same handle can shift goals simply by switching out one tip for another.

Benefits:
Increase Oral Awareness:
The Z-Vibe is highly recommended for individuals with hyposensitivities and low oral tone. 
Its gentle vibration can help increase oral awareness and provide much needed proprioceptive input to the lips, cheeks, tongue, and jaw. 
For sensory-seekers who crave oral stimulation, massaging the gums with the Soft Brush Tip can be particularly helpful.

 

Decrease Oral Sensitivities and Food/Texture Aversions:
The Z-Vibe is also recommended for hypersensitive individuals. 
In these cases, vibration as well as the various textures/shapes of the tips can help gradually desensitize the mouth and decrease oral aversions and sensory defensiveness.

 

Calm and Soothe:
Vibration can be a very helpful tool for calming and organizing. The Z-Vibe's smooth vibration provides gentle sensory feedback to the lips, gums, tongue, jaw, and inside the cheek area. 


This oral input (under supervised use) can help decrease self-biting or chewing on one's hands, shirts, pencils, etc.  While it is mostly used inside the oral cavity, it can also be used outside the mouth on the cheeks, neck, and arms for additional feedback.



Why it works:
When just touching the lips, tongue, cheeks, etc. doesn’t provide enough input, simply turn the Z-Vibe® on. 
Its gentle vibration provides a new level of tactile awareness for additional sensory feedback, to help "wake up" the mouth, and to draw more acute attention to specific movements of the cheek, jaw, lips, and tongue.


Some people simply do not like vibration - and that's ok!  
Even without vibration, the Z-Vibe® can still provide a vast range of sensory stimulation.

Frequently Asked Questions ~ About ARK's Z-Vibe® and Z-Grabber®

Q: I just got a Z-Vibe® or Z-Grabber®. How do I turn it on?
A: Twist the Switch Tip (the knob end) into the handle *just* until it starts to vibrate. Twisting any further will not increase the vibration (but significant over-tightening may be harmful to the motor.)

 

Q: I am a parent/caregiver. Can I use ARK’s Z-Vibe® or Z-Grabber® at home?
A: Absolutely! It is very important for parents to follow through with recommended therapy techniques at home. You can often accelerate learning by working on your child's therapy homework at home. 

Be sure to ask your therapist to explain and demonstrate the exercises and to give you tips for making progress at home. Remember, direct adult supervision is required at all times.

 

Q: Can my child use the Z-Vibe® / Z-Grabber® on their own?
A: ARK’s Z-Vibe® / Z-Grabber® is designed to be used by a therapist and/or parent. Children must not use the tool independently. If the child wants to hold the tool him/herself, we recommend using hand-over-hand assistance.  As a medical device that contains small parts, it must be directly supervised at all times.

 

Q: Is ARK’s Z-Vibe® / Z-Grabber® a toy?
A: No, it is a therapeutic tool intended to be used by a professional therapist (or by parents 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.

 

Q: Can the handle be chewed on?
A: No, the handle should not be chewed on. Chewing on the handle (especially the end where the battery goes in) may damage the device and/or cause internal rust and corrosion. Only the appropriate chewable attachments should be chewed on. The Switch Tip end should not go in the mouth. 

 

Q: How do you assemble the Z-Vibe® or Z-Grabber®?
A: If you just bought your Z-Vibe® or Z-Grabber® - no assembly is required (it comes pre-assembled and ready to turn on). Twist the Switch Tip (the knob end) into the handle *just* until it starts to vibrate and you'll be ready to go.
Twisting any further will not increase the vibration, but significant over-tightening (although very hard to do) may be harmful to the motor.
If you are replacing the battery, or if all of the parts were removed and you need to get them back in, please see the diagram below:

 

Diagram on how to replace the battery

 

Q: How long does the battery last for?
A: Each battery lasts for about 24 hours of continuous use. So if you use it a few minutes a day for example, it will last a long time. If it's on for an hour per day, it'll last for about 24 days. If you’re replacing the battery, see the diagram above for assembly instructions. Please note: the Z-Vibe® and Z-Grabber® come with a specially modified battery. We recommend purchasing spare batteries from an authorized supplier.

 

Q: How do you clean ARK’s Z-Vibe®, Z-Grabber®, and tips?
A: Wipe the handle with a disinfecting spray or wipe (such as Clorox Anywhere). The tips can then be removed and either:
1. Scrubbed with mild soap and water.
2. Put in the dishwasher (no drying cycle or added heat). Please make sure the parts are secured and won’t fall onto the heating element at the bottom of the dishwasher.
3. The tips can also be boiled as long as it is only for a few minutes, and as long as you wait a few hours before using again (so that they can cool to the core not just to the touch).
