About the Exopulse Mollii Suit

Electro-Stimulation For A Range of Applications

The Exopulse Mollii Suit is an assistive device, providing a unique, mild, low-frequency electro-stimulation therapy via a comfortable two-piece suit. This suit is specifically programmed to the needs of the individual. It is available throughout Australia and New Zealand.

The Exopulse Mollii Suit is designed to help relax spastic, tense and aching muscles safely and simply. As such, it can help those living with Spasticity and Motor Impairments. The Exopulse Mollii Suit can be used as a therapy by people living with Cerebral Palsy, the effects of a Stroke, spinal cord injury, acquired brain injury or other diagnoses that lead to motor disabilities.

The wearer is fitted with the Exopulse Mollii Suit and an accompanying control unit, which is then programmed to the specific needs of the individual during a professional assessment by an Exopulse Mollii Suit trained therapist. Electro-stimulation treatment progresses for a period of 60 minutes, targeting the specific muscle groups via the antagonist (opposite) muscles. This can prompt lasting, natural reflexes such as reciprocal inhibition, to relieve muscle tension, imbalances, Spasticity and other motor disabilities. It can thus help to improve the range of motion, function and activity.

The residual benefit of a 60-minute treatment may last for up to 48 hours, after which the Suit therapy can easily be repeated in a home environment. However, on-going exercise or therapy is vital to improve the chances of developing lasting improvements.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Exopulse Mollii Suit is an assistive device for people with Spasticity and other forms of motor impairment, whether it’s due to Cerebral Palsy, Stroke, brain damage, spinal cord injuries or other neurological injuries. The Exopulse Mollii Suit can also be used to help alleviate chronic pain.

The Exopulse Mollii Suit is a functional garment (medical device Class IIa) that consists of a jacket, a pair of trousers and a detachable control unit which sends electrical signals to the user via electrodes on the inside of the garment. The suit has 58 electrodes which can be combined in various ways to stimulate 40 muscle groups. The Exopulse Mollii Suit has a control unit that is individually programmed for each user. The person prescribing the Exopulse Mollii 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 Exopulse Mollii Suit control unit, making it simple for the device to be used at home.

The Components of the Exopulse Mollii Suit System

The Exopulse Mollii Suit uses low-level electric current to produce basic tension in the musculature. The current stimulates the antagonist to the spastic muscle. If, for example, the biceps are spastic, the triceps are stimulated which, in turn, makes the biceps relax. Relaxing the muscle enables active movement and a gradual improvement in function. The physiological mechanism is called reciprocal inhibition.

Patients who are using the Exopulse Mollii Suit will be supplied with the following:

  • Jacket
  • Trousers
  • Control unit
  • Belt
  • Laundry bag
  • User manual

The clothing should receive a 40-degree delicate wash once per month. In between, the garment can be hand washed in lukewarm water. The warranty period for the Exopulse Mollii Suit is two years.
