Health and Safety

Health and safety are at the core of our company. SentioLife Solutions, Ltd. products, KidCompanions Chewelry and SentioCHEWS, are chewable and wearable sensory tools for individuals who have an overwhelming urge to chew, bite, and/or fidget. Our chew pendants double up as fidget toys that can be mouthed. SentioCHEWS are especially suited for the more aggressive chewers. Our chewable necklaces are discreet and age-appropriate alternatives to traditional oral motor and manipulative tools that bring attention to the users.
