Description

It’s common for children to be scared of needles and injections, so we provide Buzzy Bees to ease the experience. Buzzy Bees vibrates and lowers the temperature of the child’s skin at the site of the injection. This confuses the nerve pathways and allows the child to receive an injection with almost no pain at all. It replaces the pain with temperature and movement.

Importance Importance

Children need their immunizations, injections and blood tests for treatment and to recover from the specialist care the hospital provides. Buzzy Bee also ensures doctors and nurses do not have to wait for numbing cream, especially as the emergency department can get busy and chaotic quickly.
