Meet Quiggles™

Our pain-reducing penguin for patients of all ages

Proven to reduce needle pain by an average of 50-80%, Quiggles is more than Quest’s adorable blood-draw buddy. This FDA-cleared, high-tech penguin is scientifically designed to dull the body’s ability to feel sharp pain.

Quiggles combines safe, high-frequency vibration with a soothing ice pack. This helps decrease pain associated with a blood draw. His proprietary technology was created by pediatric emergency doctor, pain researcher, and parent, Dr Amy Baxter.

And since Quiggles is a drug-free pain reducer, there are no worrisome drug-related side effects.

Quiggles can help Quest patients of all ages have more comfortable blood draws. Before a blood draw, our trained medical staff will place Quiggles and his ice pack on the patient’s arm or hand.

Using Quiggles is optional and based on availability at your Patient Service Center.
