Everyone’s Buzzing About Buzzies

buzzies1Buzzies is a wearable device for children on the spectrum. It uses neuroscience to relieve anxiety and stress. The devices connect remotely through the an App on your smart phone and control the non-invasive vibrating patterns emitted through the device.

Buzzies give the user a gentle stimulation or vibration. This bi-lateral alternating stimulation-tactile technology, abbreviated as BLAST, affects the brain and alters the body’s fight or flight mechanism. The technology is mostly associated with EDMR therapy, or the Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, which is a commonly used method to treat PTSD, anxiety, phobias and other associated psychological disorders.

Once you pair the Buzzies, you can choose from one of the pre-settings for Calm, Focus, Improve Performance, manage Anger, reduce Cravings, Sleep, or create a custom setting. Once you hit start, the Buzzies will begin “buzzing” or vibrating bilaterally. It’s this bi-lateral stimulation (called BLAST) that alters the body’s fight, flight, or freeze (F3) response that reduces your stress and anxiety level. For more research information feel free to look at the Research link on their website.
