Shopping for tongue depressors online, I found some that were listed as "senior". What is the difference between a "senior" tongue depressor and an "adult" one?


From the products online labelled as such, there seems to be no difference between "adult size", "Standard" and "Senior" sized (6") tongue depressors. On the other hand, I would assume "Senior" is used to differentiat that product from the "Junior" (5.5"), "Infant" (4.5") tongue depressors, which some companies label as such.
