ARK’s Z-Vibe® is a unique vibratory tool with extraordinary versatility for oral motor therapy and beyond. Even though it is only the size of a ball point pen, the Z-Vibe® provides a vast range of sensory stimulation.
Most people are either auditory or visual learners. Sometimes, however, these two senses are not enough, and we must look to other options, such as the sense of touch. Speech-Language Pathologists have been trained to use tactile input to teach individuals how to lateralize their tongue, elevate their tongue tip, make a tongue bowl, close their lips, learn a rotary chew, position the articulators for sound production, and various other oral motor skills. The Z-Vibe® is a tool to help therapists work on these skills in and around the mouth. It can always be used in the off position without vibration. Or, it can be turned on for additional sensory input with its smooth, gentle vibrations. Vibration provides a new level of sensory stimulation to increase awareness and to draw more acute attention to the articulators. Many individuals also find vibration to be calming and soothing.
