Wearable Multiple Sclerosis Support in Australia

Striving to Relieve the Effects of MS

The Exopulse Mollii Suit holds potential benefits that may assist individuals with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system, leading to various neurological symptoms and impairments. While the effectiveness of the Exopulse Mollii Suit for MS requires further research, its electrically powered neuromodulation capabilities offer potential benefits that could aid in managing certain aspects of the condition.

If you’d like to try out the Exopulse Mollii Suit to determine if it may be the right solution for you, call us on 1300 315 530. You may be eligible to purchase the technology via the NDIS. At Mollii Australia, we offer this technology 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.

Helping to Address Muscle Conditions Associated With MS

Via targeted electrical impulses, the Exopulse Mollii Suit may be able to address muscle-related symptoms of MS in the following ways:

Relaxation of Muscle Spasms & Decreased Muscle Tension

MS can cause muscle spasms and increased muscle tension. The Exopulse Mollii Suit’s electrical stimulation has the potential to promote muscle relaxation, potentially reducing spasms and relieving muscle tension. This may contribute to improved comfort and ease of movement.

Prevention or Retardation of Disuse Atrophy & Muscle Weakness

Reduced muscle activity and weakness commonly result from MS, due to its impact on motor control. The Exopulse Mollii Suit’s electrical stimulation has the potential to help prevent or slow down disuse atrophy, maintaining muscle strength and promoting muscle re-education for improved function.

Increasing Local Blood Circulation

MS can affect blood circulation, potentially leading to poor tissue health. The Exopulse Mollii Suit’s electrical stimulation has the potential to increase local blood circulation. This potential benefit may support tissue healing, reduce the risk of complications and possibly contribute to improved overall wellbeing.

Muscle Re-Education & Maintenance for Improvement of Range of Motion

MS can result in impaired motor control and limited range of motion. The Exopulse Mollii Suit’s electrical stimulation has the potential to aid in muscle re-education, potentially improving motor control and facilitating the maintenance or improvement of range of motion. This may help individuals with MS maintain functional abilities and enhance their mobility.

Frequently Asked Questions

Electrically powered neuromodulation can provide potential benefits to individuals living with MS in several ways. It can help manage symptoms such as muscle weakness, Spasticity and pain by stimulating or inhibiting specific nerves or muscle groups. This may improve motor function and overall mobility. Secondly, neuromodulation techniques have shown promise in enhancing cognitive function and reducing fatigue in individuals with MS. Additionally, neuromodulation may have neuroprotective effects and promote neural plasticity, potentially slowing disease progression. However, it’s important to note that the effectiveness and suitability of specific neuromodulation techniques may vary depending on individual circumstances, and consultation with healthcare professionals is essential.

Exercise helps to maintain muscle strength, preventing muscle atrophy and weakness, which are common in MS. Strong muscles support mobility and improve balance, reducing the risk of falls. Secondly, regular exercise promotes cardiovascular health, enhances circulation and improves overall endurance. It can also help manage fatigue, a common symptom of MS. Additionally, exercise has been shown to have positive effects on mood and mental wellbeing, reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety. However, it is important to consult with healthcare professionals to determine suitable exercise routines based on individual capabilities and limitations.

Other Potential Benefits for People Living With MS

The Exopulse Mollii Suit may also assist with:

  1. Pain Modulation: MS can be accompanied by chronic pain, including musculoskeletal pain. The Exopulse Mollii Suit’s neuromodulation capabilities have the potential to aid in pain modulation, potentially providing relief from these symptoms and contributing to a more comfortable and pain-free experience.
  2. Balance & Gait Control: Balance and gait difficulties are common in MS. The Exopulse Mollii Suit’s electrical stimulation has the potential to positively impact gross motor function, which may improve balance and gait control. This potential benefit may lead to enhanced stability, reduced falls and improved walking abilities.
  3. Cognitive Support: While the primary focus of the Exopulse Mollii Suit is on physical rehabilitation, there is potential for it to indirectly support cognitive wellbeing in individuals with MS. By potentially improving motor function, reducing pain and enhancing overall wellbeing, the Exopulse Mollii Suit may indirectly contribute to cognitive aspects and overall quality of life.

It’s important to note that further research and individual assessments are necessary to determine the specific benefits and suitability of the Exopulse Mollii Suit for individuals with Multiple Sclerosis. The condition presents unique challenges, and treatment plans should be personalised and overseen by healthcare professionals experienced in managing MS. Consulting with healthcare professionals or specialists in Multiple Sclerosis is essential to determine the potential benefits and integrate the Exopulse Mollii Suit into a comprehensive management approach.
