The Zaky is backed by 3+ years of engineering research and product development and almost
2 decades of providing around the clock nurturing care for preemies, well-babies, and small children. 
These are the independent studies and publications of the groundbreaking results of the studies
that have used The Zaky.

Publication: RCT: Neuroprotective Core Measure 2: Partnering with Families - Effects of a Weighted Maternally-Scented Parental Simulation Device [The Zaky HUG] on Premature Infants in Neonatal Intensive Care

Publication: Randomized Control Trial: "Neuroprotective Core Measure 2: Partnering with Families - Effects of a Weighted Maternally-Scented Parental Simulation Device [The Zaky HUG] on Premature Infants in Neonatal Intensive Care" CLICK HERE FOR THE POSTER by Kendra Russell, PhD, RN, Barbara Weaver, RN, Robert L. Vogel, Ph.D. Newborn and Infant Nursing Reviews: Neuroprotection of the Neonate (NICU) Volume 15, Issue 3, September 2015, Pages 97-103 Conclusion:

Neuroprotective supportive care using a weighted maternally-scented parental simulation device [The Zaky HUG] resulted in increased physiologic stability of premature and early term infants through the promotion of self-regulation seen by reduction of stressful behaviors, and decreased apnea, and bradycardia. 

Watch the following explanation of the results from Dr. Vogel, the biostatistician and PI of this Randomized Control Trial:

 

Cochrane Library Publication: Effect of Facilitated Tucking Created with Simulated Hands [The Zaky HUG] on Physiological Pain Indicators during Venipuncture in Premature Infants

Cochrane Library Publication: Effect of Facilitated Tucking Created with Simulated Hands [The Zaky HUG] on Physiological Pain Indicators during Venipuncture in Premature Infants by Nayer Salmani, Zohre Karjoo, Khadige Dehghan, Alireza Sadeghnia Conclusion:
According to the results of the current research, using the simulating glove [The Zaky HUG] to reduce pain during invasive and painful procedures is an effective and easy method for preterm newborns. Therefore, it is recommended that such simulation devices be applied in NICU for pain management, especially when parents of infants refuse to be present during painful procedures." Iranian journal of neonatology, 2017, 8(4), 7‐12 added to CENTRAL: 31 October 2018 | 2018 Issue 10 

Does mother scented simulated hand (MSSH) [The Zaky HUG®] promote comfort, reduce pain, and distress among mechanically ventilated preterm neonates during invasive procedures?  Zohour Ibrahim Rashwan1,2*, Gehan Maher Khamis
Conclusion: Wrapping the preterm neonates with a warm MSSH promotes comfort and reduces their pain and distress during invasive procedures, especially when their mothers are not physically available.Journal of Health Sciences 2021;11(3):160-167, DOI: https://doi.org/10.17532/jhsci.2021.1402

Effect of facilitated tucking with the nurse and a simulated hand [The Zaky HUG®] on physiological pain index during vein puncture on premature infants. Salmani, N., Karjoo, Z.,Dehghani, K.,Sadeghnia, A.

Conclusion: The results of the study showed that the use of nursing hands and simulated hands to put a premature infant in a facilitated tucking is effective equally in controlling the physiological indices.(2021) Journal of Health Sciences, Journal of Babol University of Medical Sciences, Volume 20, Issue 9, 2018, Pages 14-19
