The Z-Vibe was developed by a speech-language pathologist as a vibrating tool for oral-motor stimulation and sensory input. The Z-Vibe gentle vibrations are great for stimulating the gums, palate, and tongue, mouth, cheeks and lips. The z vibe is great for strengthening oral awareness and motor function.
The Z-Vibe comfortable to hold handle is approx. 3.5" long and is made of textured medical grade plastic. The Z-Vibe comes with one Probe tip that is 7/8" in length that is perfect for a child’s mouth providing a smooth texture and two bumpy textures. Other tips are sold separately.
All z-vibe tips are made of sturdy, medical grade plastic that is FDA approved and contains no latex. Z-Vibe tips easily screw into the handle and are easy to change out. Often the z vibe Spoon Tips are used to provide oral stimulation during feeding therapy. Although tips are easily washed for sanitation, we recommend that tips are not shared between individuals.
Please note the Z-Vibe is not a chew toy. The attachment tips are not designed for constant chewing or biting. The Z-Vibe should only be used under adult supervision and tips need to be checked periodically for replacement.
Note: the Z-Vibe takes a special battery which is not readily available in stores. We recommend buying a spare one.

Our son loves his Z vibe. He was first introduced to it at Music Therapy and he took to it so much, we ordered him one. It holds up well to his chewing and biting.
