I was under the impression that I was getting the Therabite to help with my jaw stretching. However, the package just arrived and is an OraStretch. I know the Therabite is good....does anyone know anything about the Orastretch???? I haven't opened it yet so can exchange it if necessary. Thanks.

    I am using the therabite, as I can't afford the other device, never heard of the OraStretch, if you use it please let me know how it works for you. The therabite is really hard for me as I am more then 5 years passed my last treatment and things don't want to open like they once did.

    I just looked at the Orastretch on the internet; get a therabite from looks of it, it is easier to use.

    Used the Therabite
    I was part of a swallow study during my treatment Jan.- Mar. this year. Part of the study was daily swallowing, sounding (EEEE's) and jaw stretching using the Therabite. I was measured weekly and at the end of treatment my range of motion with opening my mouth had increased, even though I wasn't eating and only drinking through a straw. I was lucky to be part of this study and hope everyone that is having difficulty will try this tool and give it time to help with yout range of motion.
