More About This Product
Ice Finger New research shows that this thermal stimulator stays cold throughout the entire therapy session. Helps improve oral motor and oropharyngeal strength and sensation for feeding and swallowing impairments in clients. The totally-sealed, malleable gel core is frozen for thermal stimulation and can be refrozen so one per client can be used for the entire duration of therapy. For additional stimulation, it can be dipped into sour substances. The small grip at the top makes it easy to evoke mouth opening, insert for sucking, or to overcome a hypersensitive gag reflex. Easy to use with clients who resist intraoral stimulation or have difficulty following one-step commands. Each is 4" long below the handle and is 5/8" in diameter. Pack of 5.
Outer cover: Bite resistant, Latex free PVC. Non-toxic gel
Directions for application accompany each package.
