Here is more information and helpful links for The Zaky HUG® for hospitals:
The Zaky HUG is the only device engineered by a former NICU parent and with parents' experience in mind. It extends a loving touch by simulating the shape, weight, scent, and touch of your hands and arms that HUG and comfort the baby while not being held.
One universal weight and size allows you to provide individualized care to all babies.
Similarly to adults, babies sleep better when the bed and items that touch them feel familiar, warm, safe, and comfortable, and interventions create as minimal disruption as possible. Hence the importance of using one pair of The Zaky HUG day after day, shift after shift, preferably scented with the scent of the parents (they hold The Zaky HUG to their skin on the chest or behind the neck for 30 minutes).
One pair of The Zaky HUG virtually replaces all other developmental care devices: nests, rolls, positioners, attachment aids, transitional aids, comfort aids, etc., to keep a predictable environment where patients self regulate significantly more effectively and even with decreased apnea and bradycardia and reduce pain indicators
