Technology helps take the sting out of shots - Buzzy

As a former worker with pediatrics patients, one thing which always pulled at my heart strings was to see a child's fear of shots. I would always ask parents never to say that it would not hurt because I felt this fostered mistrust between the child and the medical environment. No matter how gentle it was done, needles to some degree causes some discomfort (remember pain is always relative to the individual experiencing it). When I read an article about a new product "Buzzy" I felt finally technology had hit a home run. Read more about "Buzzy" in this article "An Innovation For Pain Relief That's Worthy Of Some Buzz"
