Phoenix Magazine - Left to Your Own Devices - By Sunaina Tandon

Scottsdale neuropsychologist and mom Dr. Amy Serin created Buzzies, a non-invasive device used to relieve stress and anxiety, to help her patients and her own two children who have ADHD and anxiety. Buzzies ($239 each) are wristbands that resemble fitness trackers. They connect to an Android- and Apple-compatible app to create soothing vibrations based on individuals’ needs. Serin partnered with her friend, child advocate Vicki Mayo, to bring the device to the public. Their patent is currently pending. Serin and Mayo say that using Buzzies for at least five minutes a day improves focus, reduces cravings, helps with anger management and leads to better sleep.
