What is Buzzy
We went from screaming and held down to "I never felt that" - totally recommend!

What is Buzzy®?
Buzzy® is simply a small vibrating bee with a unique ice pack. Put it near any sharp, itching or burning pain, and presto! Using natural pain relief, Buzzy desensitizes your body's own nerves, thereby dulling or eliminating sharp injection pain. In the same way that rubbing a bumped elbow helps, or cool running water soothes a burn, Buzzy® crowds out pain by sending stronger motion and temperature sensations down the nerves instead. Independently verified Research shows it really works.
Nurses and doctors can get too busy to wait for numbing creams. In addition, the medical community expects patients newly diagnosed with diabetes, arthritis, or leukemia to just get used to procedures -- even those with a fear of needles. For shots, for bee stings, for boo-boos, for injected medicines,… for people afraid of needles or just annoyed by stinging injections, we developed Buzzy® to put instant pain management in YOUR hands.
The research is now overwhelming. 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 was INCREASED 3 times on the first try! Buzzy® has been used for dentistry, travel immunizations, fertility shots, finger testing, splinter removal, flu injections and more!
