Quality products for individuals with special needs

DnZ-VIBE Tran-Quill Pen Set and Cip-Kup

ARK Therapeutic Services, Inc. sells speech therapy tools and other healthcare products.  For the past ten years, ARK has been committed to developing quality products for individuals with special needs.

ARK’s DnZ-Vibe is a unique vibratory tool with extraordinary versatility.  With its compact size and over 26 interchangeable tips, the possibilities are endless!  Its various tips of different shapes, sizes, and materials provide gentle vibrations to stimulate.

We received the Tran-Quill Pen Set to review.  The kit is housed in a sealable plastic case and includes 5 different colors of pen tips, 3 Bite-n-Chew Tips and the DnZ-Vibe handle.

This is a great tool to work on writing skills, as the soothing vibrations are felt in the hand, but don’t affect the handwriting.

For those that need oral stimulation the chewable tips are wonderful, plus they can be replaced when “worn out”.

The Vibe handle (available in either aluminum or plastic) and Bite-n-Chew Tips are constructed of medical grade materials that are FDA compliant and contain no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.  The Pen Tips contain no lead or phthalates.  The Tran-Quill Pen Set retails for $32.99 for the plastic and $39.99 for the aluminum.

This Pen Set has made writing easier for the individual we tried it with.  It may take a while to get used to writing with the pen tips provided though as the ink doesn’t seem to flow as well from them as with other writing utensils you may be used to.

The Cip-Kup Assembly ($19.99) includes: 1 flexible Cip-Kup Bottle, 8 inches of Special Polytube, 1 Lip Blok (3/4”), 1 Select-Flow Valve, and 12 clear straws, all packaged in a large re-usable Ziploc bag.

The flexible bottle is nice because it allows for easy squeezing and has a twist-off cap for easy cleaning.  The Select-Flow Valves make drinking easier by keeping the straw full of fluid.  The valve can be trimmed to increase the flow, decreasing the effort required to drink.  The Special Polytube is medical grade and its large diameter allows for the use of both Lip Blocks and Select-Flow Valves.

ARK’s Lip Bloks are for use with straws to discourage individuals from biting the straw and/or thrusting the tongue.  The Lip Bloks fit into any regular straw.  They are constructed of medical grade materials that are FDA compliant and contain no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.

We love that while using the Select-Flow Valve that the straw maintains the suction.  The effort required to suck past the initial intake is lessened incredibly.  It would even be a great tool to transition weaning toddlers from a bottle.
