Whether -- -- four or forty or eighty getting a shot from the doctor can be scary painful.
That fear has hospitals and homes buzzing over.
-- -- And natural pain relief for needle pain with more on this doctor Amy Baxter who wind vetting body -- the I'm so excited about this as I read about you.
And I was amazed by your story tell us what the product is first.
So yeah I think is a high frequency low amplitude by the vibrator that has an ice pack underneath -- so just like.
If you bring your finger and stick it under cold -- -- -- instantly feels better you can overwhelm -- nerves with vibration -- cold.
Wow well that sounds so simple yet nobody's ever invented this before how did you come up with the idea.
I'm a pediatrician and a pain researcher so when my four year old had -- shots and thought this is easy.
I -- in and the nurse said you can sit there but this isn't really gonna hurt.
And I said no it's not we're going to be fine and before I could do any of the things I've brought with me she jabbed him and he -- -- Obama.
So I thought for several years about how to replicate that -- under cold water sensation.
One night I was coming him from the emergency department my hands were vibrating on unbalanced wheels.
And when I got into -- hearing we'll miss Larry -- so so my hands -- buy rating.
And then when I went to go into the house and I reached for the door I realized my hand was nom.
So I thought.
Vibrator but -- -- and if I can just put vibration upstream of the needle they won't feel it.
-- -- -- -- Are exceeding show me how this works on my arm right right I am not a fan of needles I gotta tell you anything that makes it easier is good so just -- over here and put it on me so you would turn on the vibration.
Activate a little -- And for a shot and leave it on a bounce thirty seconds then slide it up and then do the shot right there.
And so I'm not really even gonna feel it's it's about 80% pain reduction.
But the nice thing is it's like a dentist doing this but you can put it here for -- talks are for dental work.
You can put it on the stomach for insulin or for -- Friday shot.
Itching is also on that seems that a nerve center any place that you got.
A mosquito bite or eczema.
You can just put it on until it goes way -- that's brilliant so.
I I'm thinking -- you know certainly a little kids who are used to the doctor -- scared of the -- but so many older folks have to have needles all the time.
And this would just be something that would relieve them you said it also raises the Boehner the -- -- the vein or that.
Artery right right well in our pediatric trial of six to twelve year old it increased IV's success on the first stick three times.
So people are more likely to get the blood draw the first stick instead of having to dig around for -- -- Because vibration pops the -- up so that is an unbelievable so okay had a people get these and can you have a brand new business right.
Right well it's buzzing for shops dot com.
Or if you Google Buzz -- you find us on almost everything and right now we're selling online and Amazon.
We're hoping to have our supply chain now that we've moved over to the United States big enough that we can supply and drug stores and over the counter.
The really important part about Fuzzy is that.
It's forty bucks it's for families you have it use it when you need to you take it to the doctor but nurses and doctors are kind of stoic about patients' pain.
So it's something that empower someone to know they can count on having the sensation and this blockade.
When they have to go get health care they might otherwise resist or avoid and I just have to tell on you a little bit because you you -- gonna bring somebody else and to develop this that they wanted to make it really expensive.
And you said well I didn't really want -- we start a business I really wanted to keep being a doctor.
And everyone wanted to make it disposable or very expensive and there's no reason it's reusable.
Change the batteries out.
And it's something that -- each family member can have.
Whether they are at the 79 year old gentleman -- is gonna put dialysis or whether it's someone and then three to 5% of people who -- with needles anybody.
Can take care of their own health now.
Eleventh doctor Amy thanks for coming -- it's a fascinating story thank you thank you so much for having me absolute pleasure.
