Mouthing is one of children's primary strategies to explore their environment. Mouthing and biting, while important to a child’s development, can lead to released small parts posing choking and aspiration hazards to children.The risks increase as strength and coordination improve and teeth develop. Intertek’s uncommon approach to research in this area employs bite fixtures that replicate the human mouth. Intertek’s Bite and Tear Hazard Assessment Models accurately simulate how one-, two- and four-year-olds bite and tear products. The test methodology simulates how children will pull against objects using their teeth while holding or pulling on them with their hands.
