For the Nurture of Premature and Sick Babies
With a pair of The Zakys, each and every baby receives evidence-based developmental care and the highest level of standard care, from birth and around the clock, regardless of the baby’s size, developmental stage, or medical condition.
The Zaky is designed to provide full body support, to aid with prone/supine/side lying positioning, to provide adjustable weight, containment, to aid with soothing and with providing constant boundaries.
The Zakys are one universal size with the shape of the right and left hands. This is a hospital product for use in hospital only, unless otherwise recommended by your paediatrician. Please refer to SIDS guidelines.
Order your pair in Cream, Lilac, Lime, Rose or Sky Blue.
Adjustable weight to use on the top of the baby: displace all filling and use only the weight of the fabric for micro-preemies, babies below 800 grams.
Babies 2700 grams and over can take the full weight of the Zaky (500 grams), unless advised differently by pediatrician.
Fully Washable: includes the washing bag – wash/dry without disassembly.
Scent: place The Zaky directly on parents skin (chest or behind the neck) for at least one hour.
Infection Control: hospitals that have zero incidents of infections use the Zakys as standard for developmental care.
Soft material: anti-pilling micro fleece is immediately soothing for the baby.
Safe materials: smooth plastic micro-spheres that are antimicrobial, antiallergenic, antifungal, washable, quiet, and do not get hot under a heating source.
Warming The Zaky; Infant thermoregulatory requirements vary and health care providers and parents must be aware of Isolette needs prior to applying the Zaky to an infant whose thermoregulatory needs fluctuate widely.
Similar to any device used near an infant who has high thermoregulatory needs the product must be heated to the infants Isolette temperature to avoid compromising infant thermoregulation and stability.
