Wearable Parkinson’s Disease Support in Australia

Personalised Support for Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease

The Exopulse Mollii Suit affords potential benefits that may assist individuals with Parkinson’s Disease. Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects movement and can lead to various motor and non-motor symptoms. We offer our Exopulse Mollii Suit to people living with Parkinson’s Disease 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.

While the Exopulse Mollii Suit’s effectiveness for Parkinson’s Disease requires further research, its electrically powered neuromodulation capabilities offer possible benefits that could aid in the management of symptoms associated with the condition. Our friendly, compassionate staff will help you trial the Exopulse Mollii Suit so that you and your healthcare provider can determine whether it’s right for you. We offer flexible payment and rental options.

If you’d like to arrange a consultation, call Mollii Australia on 1300 315 530. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Potential Benefits to the Muscles

Parkinson’s Disease can place a high level of stress and discomfort upon the muscles, which could develop into chronic pain. The Exopulse Mollii Suit may assist in remedying muscle issues in a variety of ways. Here are just a few of them:

Relaxation of Muscle Spasms & Decreased Muscle Tension

Parkinson’s Disease can cause muscle spasms and increased muscle tension. The Exopulse Mollii Suit’s electrical stimulation may promote muscle relaxation, potentially reducing spasms and relieving muscle tension. This may contribute to improved comfort and facilitate more fluid movements.

Prevention or Retardation of Disuse Atrophy & Muscle Weakness

Reduced movement and muscle activity in Parkinson’s Disease can lead to disuse atrophy and muscle weakness. The Exopulse Mollii Suit’s electrical stimulation has the potential to help prevent or slow down disuse atrophy. This can help maintain muscle strength and promote muscle re-education for improved function.

Increasing Local Blood Circulation

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

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

Parkinson’s Disease can impair motor control and 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 potential improvement of range of motion. This may help individuals with Parkinson’s Disease regain functional abilities and enhance their mobility.

Balance & Gait Control

Balance and gait difficulties commonly result from Parkinson’s Disease. The Exopulse Mollii Suit’s electrical stimulation has the potential to positively impact gross motor function. This may help improve balance and gait control. This potential benefit can lead to enhanced stability, reduced falls and improved walking abilities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Excessive muscle tension, known as muscle rigidity, is a common symptom of Parkinson’s Disease and can contribute to stiffness, discomfort and impaired movement. By reducing muscle tension, individuals may experience increased mobility, improved range of motion and enhanced flexibility, allowing them to perform daily activities with greater ease. It can potentially help minimise pain and discomfort associated with muscle rigidity, enhancing overall quality of life. Reducing muscle tension is typically achieved through a combination of medication, physical therapy, stretching exercises and relaxation techniques, all aimed at improving motor function and mitigating the impact of Parkinson’s Disease.

Electrical stimulation may effectively help the muscles in individuals with Parkinson’s Disease. By directly activating the muscles, electrical stimulation bypasses the impaired neural pathways, potentially mitigating muscle weakness and stiffness commonly associated with the condition. This stimulation may promote muscle strength, improve motor function and enhance overall mobility. Additionally, electrical stimulation has shown potential in reducing tremors, a characteristic symptom of Parkinson’s Disease. By modulating the neural activity and providing targeted stimulation, it may help manage and alleviate tremors, allowing individuals to perform daily activities with greater ease and stability.

Other Potential Benefits for Parkinson’s Disease Symptoms

The Exopulse Mollii Suit may assist with:

  1. Pain Modulation: Some individuals with Parkinson’s Disease may experience chronic pain, often related to muscle stiffness, tension or cramping. 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. Cognitive Support: While the primary focus of the Exopulse Mollii Suit is on physical rehabilitation, there is potential for it to indirectly support cognitive function in individuals with Parkinson’s Disease. By potentially improving motor function, reducing pain and enhancing overall wellbeing, the technology may indirectly contribute to cognitive wellbeing and 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 Parkinson’s Disease. Parkinson’s Disease management is a complex process and treatment plans should be personalised and overseen by healthcare professionals with expertise in the field.

Consulting with healthcare professionals or specialists in Parkinson’s Disease is essential to determine the potential benefits and integrate the Exopulse Mollii Suit into a comprehensive management approach. Contact us today to find out more.
