Frequently Asked Questions

Mollii Exopulse Suit is an assistive device for people with muscle pain, spasticity and other forms of motor impairment due to CP, MS, stroke, other brain injuries, fibromyalgia or other pain syndromes.
Mollii  Exopulse Suit is a functional garment that consists of a pair of trousers, a jacket and a detachable control unit which sends electrical signals to the user via 58 electrodes on the inside of the garment. The Mollii Exopulse Control Unit is individually programmed for each user by combining the electrodes in various ways. The health care professional 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 Mollii Exopulse Control Unit, making it simple for the device to be used at home.

The Mollii Exopulse Suit uses low level electric current to produce basic tension in the muscles. The current stimulates the antagonist to the spastic muscle. If, for example, the biceps is spastic, the triceps is 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. Mollii Exopulse Suit has also been shown to reduce pain. An possible explanatory model is the gate theory, which describes how stimulation of nerves in the skin can prevent pain signals from reaching the brain.

The suit is available in 37 sizes, for children, women and men’s sizes. Children (cl): 104, 110, 116, 122, 128, 134, 140, 146, 152. Women: XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL. Men: XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL. Unisex: XL Short
