The Mollii suit is a medical device, developed for stimulation of muscles and reduction of spasticity. Mollii can improve mobility and thereby contribute to improved quality of life in people with diagnoses such as cerebral palsy, stroke or multiple sclerosis. The aim of the present project has been to develop and improve the present version of the Mollii suit and to perform mechanism and clinical studies. The purpose has been to personalize the suit and to collect scientific evidence to prove its clinical effects.
Expected results and effects
The objective of the project has been to further develop the Mollii suit together with experts in the field. The results have contributed to improved knowledge within the company on how and develop a more personalized version of the suit. The results from the scientific studies are of great importance since it constitutes clinical evidence for the suit in reducing spasticity.
Planned approach and implementation
In the present project Inerventions has collaborated with experts on subcutaneous electrical stimulation from the Medical University of Vienna, Austria, to develop and refine the Mollii suit. It has been performed by adjusting the system and software. Moreover, a number of mechanism and clinical studies on the effects of the suit have been performed at Karolinska Institutet/Danderyds Sjukhus in Stockholm, by Bandagist Jan Nielsen and at Hvidovre Hospital in Copenhagen. The results from the studies will be published in scientific journals during 2019 and 2020.
