In the wards, the nurses and doctors don’t always have time to wait for numbing creams to work before a needle procedure.
Buzzy is a cute vibrating bee or ladybug with ice pack wings that decreases pain during a needle procedure. Buzzy uses a patented combination of cold and vibration to replace pain with temperature and movement. Buzzy uses natural pain relief by confusing the body’s nerves, thereby dulling or eliminating sharp pain; in the same way running cool water soothes a burn.
Calico supports the Oncology team of doctors, nurses and play staff at RACH by supplying these cute buzzy bees.
