Let’s face it: cleaning that herd of bacteria residing on your cell phone can be pretty challenging. Enter PhoneSoap, a sanitizer that uses UV-C light to kill the bacteria while charging your phone. Although the charger ships with a micro-USB cable, it also contains a standard USB port where users can plug in a 30-pin, Lightning, or other USB charging cable. The 6 inch by 3.74 inch interior space should fit most phones, and sanitizing takes about 4 minutes. PhoneSoap is designed with acoustic outlets to allow users to hear notifications or alarms if they sanitize the phone overnight.

Buzzy is a physiologic pain blocker that uses cold and vibration to take the sting out of shots. The reusable device combines a battery-powered therapeutic massager and ice pack in a fun, bee-shaped package to help alleviate needle phobia, injection pain, and burning that can accompany vaccinations, IV insertion, or other procedures involving needles. The device can be sanitized using the same methods used for a traditional blood pressure cuff. For more information on Buzzy and special sanitary measures, please visit the manufacturer’s website.
