What is Buzzy?
BUZZY is a small vibrating bee with blue ice-pack wings. He helps block sharp pain and provides distraction when giving injections or other medical procedures.
Just like cool running water soothes a burn, Buzzy uses a combination of cold and vibration to replace pain with temperature and movement.
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 cold running water soothes a burn.
BUZZY was invented by Pediatric Emergency Doctor and Pain Researcher Amy Baxter. She invented Buzzy to help her children overcome their fear of needles.
Buzzy is now used in medical practices, vaccination clinics, hospitals, dental practices and in homes by both adults and children.
Over 20 independent clinical trials prove Buzzy works!
