The Exopulse Mollii Suit affords an array of potential benefits that may assist individuals with Motor Neurone Disease (MND). Motor Neurone Disease, also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects motor neurons, resulting in muscle weakness and loss of motor control. While the effectiveness of the Exopulse Mollii Suit for MND requires further research, its electrically powered neuromodulation capabilities offer potential benefits that could aid in managing certain aspects of the condition:
At Mollii Australia, we are proud to support clients living with MND throughout Australia and New Zealand, including but not limited to Newcastle, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, the Mid North Coast, the Central Coast, the Gold Coast and Tasmania.

If you are living with MND, our personalised Exopulse Mollii Suit may be able to assist you in the following ways:
Electrical stimulation to muscles can help relieve symptoms of Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in several ways. Firstly, it can help maintain muscle strength and prevent muscle wasting, which is common in MND. Electrical stimulation can stimulate muscle contractions, helping to slow down muscle deterioration. Secondly, it may improve blood circulation and reduce muscle stiffness, promoting mobility and reducing discomfort. Additionally, electrical stimulation can provide pain relief by stimulating the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. However, it’s important to note that the use of electrical stimulation should be discussed and supervised by healthcare professionals, as individual needs and responses can vary extensively.
While electrical stimulation primarily targets the physical symptoms of Motor Neurone Disease (MND), it may indirectly contribute to improved mental health in several ways. Firstly, by helping individuals maintain muscle function and independence, it may enhance their sense of control and self-esteem, reducing feelings of helplessness and depression. Secondly, the pain relief that can potentially be provided by electrical stimulation can help individuals to focus more on their emotional wellbeing. Lastly, engaging in regular physical activity, even through electrical stimulation, releases endorphins and promotes a sense of wellbeing. However, it’s important to remember that mental health concerns in MND should be addressed comprehensively, including appropriate psychological support and therapy.
In addition to potentially addressing direct muscle concerns, the Exopulse Mollii Suit may assist with the following:
It’s important to note that further research and individual assessments are necessary to determine the specific benefits and the suitability of the Exopulse Mollii Suit for individuals living with Motor Neurone Disease. The condition presents unique challenges and treatment plans should be personalised and overseen by healthcare professionals experienced in managing MND. Consulting with healthcare professionals or specialists in Motor Neurone Disease is essential to determine the potential benefits and integrate the Exopulse Mollii Suit into a comprehensive management approach.
