Shot Blocker

ShotBlocker instantly reduces needle pain and anxiety associated with injections.

Patients of all ages who are receiving intramuscular or subcutaneous injections can benefit as ShotBlocker distracts and therefore reduces the perceived pain from the needle entry. ShotBlocker is an innovative, patented device that is both simple and easy-to-use.

ShotBlocker is a novel application of the gate control theory of pain management. ShotBlocker is a flexible plastic disk that has a number of blunt contact points on its underside. When pressed firmly against the patient’s skin at the injection site, ShotBlocker saturates the sensory signals distracting the patient from the pain signals caused by the needle poke.
