Buzzy4Shots ... taking the sting out of shots

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 hospitals, healthcare facilities, general practices, clinics and in homes throughout New Zealand and Australia.

We went from screaming and held down to “I never felt that” – totally recommend! - Lotty

It’s miserable to fear shots so much, especially at my age, but I finally took Buzzy and my flu shot was amazing. I really did not feel a thing. – Dianne, age 59

We have just had our second successful blood test using Buzzy . . . so happy the investment was so worth it!

Hoping you could pass along the word that this is a fantastic product. Such a small thing that has/will make his visits more bearable. Wish we had it a lot sooner and that they are available everywhere. – Christine
