What is Mollii?
Mollii is a suit consisting of a pair of trousers, a jacket and a detachable control unit. The garments include 58 imbedded electrodes, positioned to stimulate 40 key muscles in the body, and it can be programmed according to individual needs. Through low frequency electro-stimulation, it relaxes spastic, tense and aching muscles safely and simply. Mollii can also prevent and counteract different forms of muscle shortening and rigidity, and it helps regain control over muscular tension. Moreover, Mollii can facilitate activation of muscles, and thereby it may facilitate muscle contraction.
A number of clinical studies are ongoing in several countries, led by renown hospitals and doctors, including Karolinska Institutet and Hvidovre Hospital, on a large panel of more than 350 adults and children, most of which are diagnosed with cerebral palsy (CP), multiple sclerosis (MS) or stroke. The studies completed to date show in part improvements in spasticity, muscle relaxation, associated pain relief, sleep as well as physical abilities such as range-of-motion, balance, hand-arm functions, walking and mobility, and thus in overall quality of life.
