Leaders in Neonatal and Pediatric Neuroergonomics

 Babies and parents support each other to regulate, improving healing and mental health.

Nurtured by Design is a small, disruptive, family owned engineering business that is making global impact.

It is the innovator of ergonomics and human factors engineering applied to Parent/Child and the improvement of their quality of life for a lifetime. 

The brand The Zaky and its products HUG, ZAK, and ZEN, facilitates family integrated developmental care, mental health for Parent/Child, and Kangaroo Care/Skin to Skin Contact in any hospital unit, child care, and at home.

Every parent deserves taking care of and show love for his/her own child. Each child deserves positive sensorial experiences provided by The Zaky:  for the body (positioning, nesting, containment for physical and physiological development), mind and soul (attachment/bonding, mental health, reduce stress and pain, facilitate sleep that is needed for sensory development.)

The Zaky requires No Medication or Side Effects | No Invasive or Painful Procedures | No expensive Equipment

The Zaky system provides evidence-based care around the clock for any child regardless of size, medical condition, and developmental stage.  The Zaky HUG during separation, The Zaky ZAK during closeness, and The Zaky ZEN helps release stress and provide skin care by using natural and organic products that pamper and nurture the senses.
