Amy Baxter, MD, a pediatrician and pain researcher, invented Buzzy® a reusable and inexpensive unique personal pain device that provides natural pain relief. Gate control is the basis for Buzzy®, and works by confusing the body’s own nerves and distracting attention away from the poke, thereby dulling or eliminating sharp pain from shots, itching, or burning from medications. Independently verified research shows it works.
Our first trial in adults for IV starts found that Buzzy® significantly decreased phlebotomy pain, and was followed by two successful randomized controlled studies in children. Not only did Buzzy® significantly decrease pain by child and parent report, IV success increased three times on the first try! Healthcare professionals use Buzzy® for dentistry, travel immunizations, fertility shots, finger testing, splinter removal, flu injections and more! Over 100 hospitals and more than 20,000 users have adopted Buzzy®. Buzzy® was a 2011 Medical Design Excellence Awards recipient and Next Big Zing Award for Kids recipient in 2012.
