How to Use the Zida Control Sock

Have more questions?

The Zida Control Sock is for both anyone suffering from incontinence, overactive bladder, or nocturia, no matter their age.. As long as you can put on a sock, have no nerve damage to your right foot, are not pregnant or wear a pacemaker, you are a candidate for the Zida Control Sock.

Yes. To use the Zida Control Sock, you need to get a prescription. This can be done directly through the telemedicine platform we work with RIGHT HERE. All you need to do is fill out a quick survey to make sure you qualify and you will get a phone call from a certified physician in your state who can issue a prescription for the sock. Once we receive the prescription, will be processed and you should receive the Zida control sock in eight-10 business days.

Before you put the sock on,  make sure your foot and ankle are clean and washed. We recommend  applying conductive gel (available in our store) around your ankle and right below your ankle bone to align with the placement of the two electrodes embedded in the sock.  

Next, attach the control unit to the sock. Ensure the snaps line up in the correct direction and the unit is flush against the sock. Put on the sock as normal, making sure the  toe is situated fully in the blue toe area and the ankle is in the blue area of the sock.  

Hold down the power button to turn on the unit. You should see a green light, which indicates the battery is full. The light will then flash blue, which indicates test mode. Adjust the current level using the “+” and “-” buttons located on either side of the power button. until you feel a slight but steady current. 

When the unit is set to the right level, the light will steadily flash green for the duration of the 30-minute  therapy session.. 

Once the session is over, the unit will automatically shut down.

This 30 minute session is repeated once a week for a 12 week period.

Some people do not feel anything while the sock is in therapy mode, but that doesn’t mean the device isn’t working.We recommend using a conductive gel, which you can buy in our store, and applying a liberal amount to your ankle before each session.  

When the device is in test mode, we recommend increasing the current to the maximum  by continuing to press the “+” button until it reaches the maximum. At this level you should be able to feel the current and may need to lower it using the “-” button until you reach a comfortable level.

There are no side-effects from using the Zida Control Sock.

If you maintain the recommended weekly treatment for 12 weeks and follow the educational program, you should see a difference for life!  According to our data and research: 

    1. Over 75% of users report increased quality of life
    2. More than 50% of users experience less incontinence 
    3. 25% of patients are cured completely 

Some patients start to see improvement as soon as four-six weeks after beginning treatment. It is very important you track your progress using the Zida online progress tracker so you can see how your symptoms are improving, what you can do to help get to where you want to be and to compare your progress with others.

The official instructions are to use the device once a week for 30 minutes for 12 weeks.

The Zida Control Sock is completely safe and has been approved by the FDA as an effective treatment for incontinence and overactive bladder. The device should not be used if you are pregnant or have a pacemaker.

The Zida Control Sock trains the brain to stop sending the wrong signals to the bladder that tell it to empty, even when it is not full. This mis-signaling is the root cause of incontinence and overactive bladder.

Using patented embedded nano-electronics, the ZIDA Control Sock accesses the nervous system via the tibial nerve, which travels from the ankle region to the sacral nerve. By stimulating this nerve, which regulates bladder function, the ZIDA Control Sock has been proven to effectively quiet the overactive bladder and stop the brain from sending messages to empty your bladder unnecessarily.

Making sure the sock is in the right position is as easy as putting on a regular sock. Just make sure your foot is properly aligned so your toe and your ankle are firmly in the two blue areas on the sock.

The therapy from the Zida Control Sock is delivered as an electric current and should feel like a small constant vibration. If you are feeling uncomfortable or the vibration is stronger or weaker than you would like, use the “+” and “-” to adjust the current to a more comfortable level.
