The Zaky has been instrumental in comforting both the term and preterm baby when a human hand cannot remain with him/her. Placing the ‘hand’ so that it caresses the head or lower extremities provides boundaries such that the baby remains in a quiet behavioral state for longer periods, thus saving precious energy and facilitating growth. By having the parent place the device, they feel like they have left a part of them that will soothe their baby when they can’t be there."
