Potential Muscle Benefits for Spasticity

The Exopulse Mollii Suit may be able to help relieve muscle Spasticity in the following ways:

Increased Muscle Coordination & Motor Control:

Spasticity can affect muscle coordination and motor control, leading to difficulties in performing everyday tasks. The Exopulse Mollii Suit’s electrical stimulation has the potential to promote muscle re-education and potentially improve muscle coordination and motor control. This may assist individuals with Spasticity in achieving smoother and more controlled movements.

Reduction of Muscle Stiffness

Spasticity often causes muscle stiffness, making movements challenging and uncomfortable. The Exopulse Mollii Suit’s electrical stimulation has the potential to relax stiff muscles, potentially reducing muscle stiffness associated with Spasticity. This may contribute to improved flexibility and ease of movement.

Relaxation of Muscle Spasms & Decreased Muscle Tension

Spasticity is often associated with 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 associated with Spasticity. This may contribute to improved comfort, ease of movement and potential relief from muscle-related symptoms.

Improved Range of Motion & Flexibility

Spasticity can limit joint mobility and range of motion. The Exopulse Mollii Suit’s electrical stimulation has the potential to aid in maintaining or improving range of motion by promoting muscle re-education and facilitating joint movement. This may help individuals with Spasticity regain functional abilities and enhance their mobility.

Frequently Asked Questions

Neuromodulation techniques may help relieve Spasticity by targeting the disrupted neural pathways responsible for muscle overactivity. It can be used to modulate nerve activity and reduce Spasticity. The electrical impulses applied to specific muscles may promote contraction and relaxation. Neuromodulation may help improve muscle control, increase range of motion and reduce muscle stiffness and spasms. It can serve as a non-invasive approach to manage Spasticity and can be tailored to individual needs.

Several factors can potentially aggravate Spasticity. Physical triggers include excessive physical activity, fatigue, prolonged immobility or sitting, abrupt temperature changes and tight clothing or splints that restrict movement. Emotional factors like stress, anxiety or strong emotions can also contribute to Spasticity. Infections, urinary tract issues, and skin problems like pressure sores may exacerbate symptoms. Additionally, certain medications, inadequate hydration and poor nutrition may influence Spasticity. It’s crucial to identify individual triggers and work with healthcare professionals to develop strategies for managing and minimising their impact. A comprehensive approach that addresses both physical and emotional factors can help alleviate Spasticity symptoms.
