Buzzy4Shots ... taking the sting out of shots

Please contact us if you need to order 5 units or more


BUZZY is a small vibrating device designed to help block sharp pain and provide distraction during medical procedures.

A cooling pad (ice-wings) is placed behind Buzzy, and Buzzy is placed between the brain and the pain (usually on arms or hands). Turn Buzzy on and leave him in place during the procedure. Your attention is taken away from the needle and pain and focused on the cool, vibrating buzzy bee.

Buzzy confuses your body’s own nerves and distracts attention away from the pain, thereby dulling or eliminating sharp injection pain. In the same way that rubbing a bumped elbow helps, or cool running water soothes a burn.

The gate control theory is the basis for Buzzy. “Gate control” is the term used to describe pain relief by causing sensations other than pain, and then sending them down the same pathway where pain gets blocked at the “gate”. Sharp pain, itching, and burning are transmitted on the same nerve to a transmission system in the dorsal (sensory) horn of the spinal cord. Motion signals travel alongside pain fibers on Abeta nerves, as do temperature and pressure nerves (C fibers). A single summary signal is then transmitted up the spinal cord, thus excess vibration or cold can overwhelm or dilute the sharp pain from shots, itching, or burning from medications.

Buzzy is used in dozens of hospitals, healthcare facilities, vaccinations clinics, general practices and in homes throughout New Zealand and Australia.

I work as pain management nurse in a children's hospital. I use Buzzy every day. It's great with shots, blood draws, lumbar punctures, and even bone marrow aspiration... Buzzy is fun and useful. I use it along with distraction cards…"  Anne T

“I wanted to let you know that the buzzy device … has worked wonderfully. We have had patients who have been afraid of giving themselves shots be amazed at how well this works in relieving pain….- Tracey

I love Buzzy for IV’s because it doesn’t constrict the veins down like cold spray but it gives the analgesic effect kids need. I don’t have 30 minutes to wait for LMX. - Hope

Today I used Buzzy on myself with the frozen wings for an Imitrex shot. I HATE Imitrex bc it burns like fire. Buzzy made it 10x better. I actually laid in bed suffering for 4 hours with the migraine bc I hate the shot so bad. It’s not the needle. It’s the fire medicine. LOL. Buzzy is the bomb. - Sarah

Good effect in childhood clinics

I work in Community Child Health and we've been using Buzzy with good effect in childhood clinics, esp. 18tmh and 4yr old.
We are planning to use Buzzy with school age students who are particularly nervous of needles.

We love the buzzy bee!

I’m a GP and I borrowed my clinic’s buzzy (which we got for COVID vaccinations), when my daughter (4) needed injections.
It went so well we bought our own one. She needs fortnightly injections. She is anxious about them, but she repeats the routine and it all goes well - she dresses buzzy in the ice wings, straps it to her leg and turns it on, then we cuddle. when she’s ready, we do the injection quickly, then she gets a Lego minifig. She doesn’t feel the injections.
Our only issue is it looks so cute our toddler tries to run off with it.

one way to help children for an overall better expeience

Buzzy is certainly an excellent way to help children you are having blood test. If they have a good experience it certainly can make next time a lot easier.
In our role we let the children practice using buzzy first so they have some form of understanding.

Allergy testing

Buzzy worked really well for my 4 year old's allergy scratch testing. I put Buzzy on his back, and Buzzy completely took away his urge to scratch himself, despite several very positive tests.

From shots to blood draws!

I'm a Clinical Nurse Specialist for children and we use buzzy daily. For shots, blood draws and just about any medical procedure buzzy distracts and helps with the pain and fear. I'd like more departments in hospitals to use buzzy. Get him out there!
