The Zaky for Hospitals
I have a PhD in ergonomics and human factors engineering and I am the mother of Zachary (see our story and reason in the video on the left)
I developed this technology that consists of one pair of The Zaky HUG (aka The Zaky) for use on the bed or behind the neck of the parent, and one The Zaky ZAK (aka Kangaroo Zak) for skin to skin contact ergonomically designed to be used in any unit of the hospital and then at home.
It is what you need per patient to provide a standard, evidence-based, ergonomic, nurturing developmental care to each patient regardless of size, medical condition, and developmental stage (including NAS babies!).
To scent The Zaky HUG, parents place them on the neck or chest for at least one hour. Moms that sleep with them seem to sleep better as they know they are dong something for their babies.
To wash/dry use the washing bag that is included with each product and follow the same laundry/recycle protocol used for the clothing of babies.
No sterilization is required, however, it is available per request for those wanting them ready to use and for Delivery.

Every baby needs to be nurtured, especially those that are preemies, hurting or experiencing separation anxiety.
The evidence-based The Zaky HUG is the only ergonomic device for nurturing developmental care for children of any age, starting at birth. By simulating the hands of the parents that calm the baby (and the parent) they help babies sleep.
One pair of The Zaky virtually replaces all the positioners, bonding aids, transitional aids, soothers, nests, swaddlers, etc. It is easy to use, fully washable, intuitive to learn and use, and extremely effective and versatile.
Useful links and Information:
Our award-winning The Zaky Zak (kangaroo Zak) has been helping parents kangaroo in NICUs since 2010.
It is the only ergonomic and safety device designed for parents to hold a baby in ANY UNIT of the hospital from anti-partum(holding the baby's monitor in place) to delivery (opens up and works for vaginal or c-section), any intensive care unit, and then at home.
It provides a standard level of care, improved KMC/STS rates and frequency, reduce supply chain cost, that is based on evidence.
These are some of the features:
