Zaky ZAK provides comfort, proper positioning, and sense of security to the baby, virtually eliminates the risk of accidental falls and slipping that causes dislodging of medical equipment.
Zaky ZAK is a strong, soft, breathable, stretchy and strapless top made with natural fibers that wraps around the torso of the adult.
It closes on the side with an adjustable zipper so it fits consistently session after session for a predictable nurturing experience. Evidence suggests that during continuous contact, the baby reaches deep sleep necessary to heal, grow and develop their brain.

Practice safe and effective Family Centred Developmental Care in NICU, on the maternity ward and at home.
By using Zaky ZAK we have empowered and enabled the parents to confidently and comfortably do it themselves. This is the most important step in Family Centred Developmental Care. Leading hospitals worldwide use Zaky ZAK for safe and effective skin-to-skin contact for improved developmental care, earlier discharge and higher breastfeeding rates.

Infants were full-term (> 37 weeks GA). Mothers assigned to the Kangaroo Care Group were given a KC wrap (Nurtured by Design's The Zaky ZAK/Kangaroo Zak)
ABSTRACT A randomized control trial was conducted to investigate the effects of skin-to-skin, chest-to-chest contact (kangaroo care, KC) in mother-infant dyads on patterns of infant brain activity and associated mother-infant neurohormone releases. 33 mother-infant dyads participated during pregnancy (29–38 weeks gestation), at neonatal and 3-month periods.
Overall, analyses indicated that: 1) infants in the KC group showed left frontal brain activation patterns (asymmetry and coherence) associated with KC training; 2) KC produced moderate to large increases in oxytocin levels; and 3) KC yielded moderate decreases in cortisol reactivity.
Findings suggest KC may garner favorable neuro-maturational and neurobiological outcomes for dyads.
