Information about The Zaky ZAK® for professionals

Thank you for using The Zaky ZAK®

Here is more information and helpful links: 

The Zaky ZAK® is the only evidence-based device engineered to hold the weight and proper position of babies (skin to skin or clothed) in the hospital and then at home.  It was engineered by Yamile Jackson, a Ph.D. in ergonomics engineering and [kangaroo] mother of Zachary, who was born at 28 weeks and spent five months in two different NICUs. 

It provides an ergonomic micro-environment for safety, warmth, love, healing, nutrition, development, growth, and protection for babies weighing 1 to 15 lbs. 

The simple, adjustable, quiet, easy to use, strong, and practical design with zippers:

  • Ensures perfect fit every time from admission to discharge and beyond.
  • Enables easy, reliable, and quiet access at all times for breastfeeding, pumping, and interventions
  • Does not use Velcro (Velcro® is loud, disruptive, challenging to reposition, loses strength with every wash, and can't be partially opened) or ties (ties create pressure points)
  • Minimizes human errors.
  • Significantly reduces risks of falls or injury during skin to skin and breastfeeding.
  • Provides a predictable and safe experience for clinicians, parents, and patients before, during, and after holding.
