- About Buzzy
Buzzy® is a palm-sized device combining cold and vibration that when placed between the brain and the pain decreases sharp pains. Buzzy looks like a bee, he has a companion LadyBuzz, and can also be customized.
Buzzy helps kids with needle procedures by using natural pain relief. His wings are icy cold, and his tummy vibrates when you touch his head. This confuses your body’s nerves to block sharp feelings, just like rubbing a bumped elbow helps stop the hurt, or cool running water soothes a burn. When you put Buzzy near a poke, burn, or other minor sharp pain, you mostly feel Buzzy doing his thing. Since it’s over the counter, families can buy Buzzy, or ask if their doctor or hospital already has it.
In an emergency department, nurses and doctors can get too busy to wait for numbing creams for needle procedures. The cool (well, COLD) thing about Buzzy is you can bring him with you for shots, for bee stings, for boo-boos, for injected medicines . . . we developed Buzzy® to put instant pain management in YOUR hands.
I made Buzzy for my son; he had a mean shot-giver once, and it made him scared of needles. Now with Buzzy, he’s not scared anymore, and he knows he has a secret weapon to make pokes more comfortable. He doesn’t have to be embarrassed about not liking shots, and I don’t worry about how he’ll deal at the doctors’ office.
I know Buzzy works for my children and their friends, but it’s important to see how well Buzzy works for other people. We did research for adults getting IVs (the little straw that can take blood or give you fluids) and found that Buzzy® significantly decreased pain. We also tried it for children needing IV starts in the emergency department, and they liked Buzzy too. You can read about our results in … The kids, their parents, and people who were part of the research all said Buzzy worked better In the study for regular shots…, and hope someone will study it for glucose finger sticks, and flu shots, and allergy shots!
