Exopulse Mollii Suit

Functional Electrical Stimulation

What is Exopulse Mollii Suit?

The Exopulse Mollii Suit is a functional lycra garment that consists of a pair of trousers, a jacket and a detachable control unit which sends electrical signals to the user via electrodes on the inside of the garment. The Suit can help to reduce undesired effects of muscle spasticity (stiffness), thus enabling an improved posture, range of motion and functional ability. It can also reduce certain types of pain and improve sleep patterns. Exopulse Mollii Suit is a safe treatment, very similar to TENS, which is used widely for pain relief and the effects of the Suit are reversible. You may not be able to wear a Exopulse Mollii Suit if you have an implanted electronic or magnetic device (e.g. a pacemaker, baclofen pump or shunt).

Who Can Benefit From Using Exopulse Mollii Suit?

The Exopulse Mollii Suit can be used by adults and children with neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury, stroke and chronic pain.
The Suit has many benefits including:
• Reduced spasticity and muscle tightness
• Increased efficiency of movement and reduction of effort required
• Improved postural control
• Reduced pain
• Improved balance
• Reduced fatigue and improved sleep
• ‘Charging up’ the nervous system prior to a physiotherapy session

How Does Exopulse Mollii Suit Work?

The Suit has 58 electrodes which can be combined in various ways. Exopulse Mollii Suit has a control unit which is individually programmed for each user. The person prescribing the Suit uses a computer program to adapt the active electrodes and the intensity (which muscles are to be activated by means of current). The settings are then saved in the device control unit making it simple for the device to be used at home. Exopulse Mollii Suit uses low level electric current to produce basic tension in the musculature. The current stimulates the antagonist to the spastic muscle by a process called reciprcoal inhibition. If, for example, the biceps is spastic, the tricep is stimulated which in turn makes the biceps relax. Relaxing the muscle enables active movement and a gradual improvement in function.

What to Expect

Hobbs rehabilitation offer a 2 hour assessment. The assessment will include a pre-assessment of your muscle power, tone and range and review completing functional tasks. The Suit will then be programmed to your individual needs and worn for an hour. After wearing the suit you will then be reassessed looking for any potential change in the previously assessed measures to evaluate the benefits of the Exopulse Mollii Suit.

After completing the assessment you then have the opportunity to trial the Exopulse Mollii Suit at home before making your final decision on whether to purchase the suit. The suit can either be hired throughout Ottobock directly for 2 weeks or for a longer trial through Remotion Ltd. From the clinical trials undertaken it is recommended to wear the suit for an hour every other day as the Exopulse Mollii Suit has been shown to have a degree of carry-over.
