ARK Therapeutic is designing and manufacturing a range of solutions for sensory stimulations and oral motor input for last 18 years. Founded by a speech-language pathologist with an aim to improve oral health of people, the organization designs the products in a unique shape to keep patient involved during treatment. The Ark develops products for chewing, feeding, drinking and other therapeutic tools such as oral motor, navigator. The Bite Saber Sensory Chewelry of Ark Therapeutic is a chewable pendant that helps in improving sensory stimulation and jaw muscle strengthening.
ARK’s Bite Saber® Sensory Chewelry is a safe and super cool solution for anyone who needs to chew. At 4 inches long and just under half an inch in diameter at the tip, it’s just the right size to reach the back molars where chewing is needed the most. Use it to provide calming proprioceptive input to the jaw, and/or as a safe alternative to chewing on fingers, shirt collars, sleeves, pencils, etc. The Bite Saber® features a tactile handle with a smooth “blade” for biting/chewing. And like all ARK chews, it comes in three 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.
Choose your option from the menu above. Each pendant is sold individually with its own adjustable breakaway necklace cord. Color hues may vary slightly.
Designed, manufactured, and assembled in the USA by ARK Therapeutic. 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. Please supervise at all times, regularly inspect the chew, and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear. For the longest lasting chew tool overall, click here.
