Buzzy Helps Alleviate Pain from Injections


As a parent of a young child, I can tell you that kids don’t like shots. At all. Anytime my daughter has to get a shot, she talks about it for days afterwards. That’s of course because shots hurt. Sure, it’s not world-ending pain, but to a child, it’s absolutely no fun.

What if there was a way to alleviate some of the pain caused by a shot? That’s exactly what Buzzy is all about. Developed by a mom and pediatric ER physician, the reusable device naturally blocks pain by using a therapeutic massager and an ice pack. Buzzy is said to help with both the fear of needle (since it distracts from the needle), but also makes the pain and burning from injections less noticeable. Buzzy also is said to help when dealing with scrapes, bee stings, splinters and itching as well.

While this could be cool for use in hospital and clinic settings, it also could come in handy at home as well – and that’s why the Buzzy will hit the market later this month for just $39.95.

Certainly an intriguing idea. What do you think?
