Suit up, hit start, and see what you can do.
With the touch of a button, the Exopulse Mollii Suit gives you the power to control the symptoms of spasticity – a debilitating movement disorder that’s common in people affected by cerebral palsy (CP), multiple sclerosis (MS), stroke, and other neurological conditions.
Immediate, consistent relief – without the tradeoffs? It’s that easy.
With the Exopulse Mollii Suit, there’s finally a way to regularly, consistently manage spasticity between the ups and downs of other treatments – or their side effects. Put it on for an hour every other day (or as often as your doctor recommends) and put inconsistent relief behind you.
Who it’s for.
The Exopulse Mollii Suit is designed for people with spasticity: a movement disorder that can be related to a number of different neurological conditions and injuries.
It’s a near full-body assistive device designed to help relieve tense, spastic muscles, and the pain these symptoms of spasticity can often cause. It can be used to help manage these symptoms in both arms and legs.
How it works.
The Suit is designed to relax spastic muscles by using a well-known technique called neurostimulation. Fifty-eight electrodes in the Suit’s jacket and pants send mild, imperceptible electrical signals to affected areas throughout the body, creating a natural response that helps muscles relax and move more naturally.
This near full-body stimulation can be personalized to each wearer’s symptoms, making the Suit a truly tailored way to unlock relief.
How it helps
The natural reaction created by the Suit can help release muscle tension, relieve related pain, and help wearers move more freely and securely.
Using it along with physical therapy, exercise, or other types of training can help support the safe mobility you need to confidently manage your health.
Watch how the Suit puts lives back in motion.*
With a simple, non-invasive, drug-free way to manage their spasticity, Louisa and Michele are rediscovering life’s possibilities. See how the Suit turns the body’s natural signals into bodies that move more freely.
It’s like I can breathe again.
With the help of her Exopulse Mollii Suit Louisa was finally able to break free from her MS-related spasticity symptoms. Her new superpower: Feeling like everything’s possible again.
I can give hugs again.
In the Exopulse Mollii Suit, even dystonic tetraparesis is no match for Michele’s confidence, energy, and positivity. His new superpower: hugging his loved ones again.
See the difference sixty minutes can make.*
Designed to be worn just an hour every other day, the Suit provides an easy, on-demand way to restore mobility and relieve spasticity-related pain. For users like Louisa, Max, and David, that hour makes all the difference in their day.
Just an hour of near full-body stimulation improves her balance, gait, and stability, and helps make everyday tasks easier for her.
Wearing the Suit helps keep him safer and more stable and gives him the control and confidence he needs when walking.
After an hour in his Suit, David’s hand, arm, and leg movements are already easier and more coordinated.
Give your patients a chance to move more freely and safely. (1)**
Early clinical results show that patients with CP, MS, and stroke had better balance and reduced their risk of falls after just 60 minutes in the Exopulse Mollii Suit. Regular, every-other-day stimulation helped them maintain their improvement.
Help patients achieve swift, sustained relief from spasticity-related pain. (1)***
In the same preliminary study, an hour in the Exopulse Mollii Suit helped significantly reduce pain symptoms in patients who reported them. Four weeks later, patients who regularly used the Suit experienced continuing reduction in pain.

Where can I or my loved one try out the Suit?
The Suit is currently available at select clinics and rehabilitation facilities in Europe. The medical teams at these locations have been specially trained on using the Suit to manage spasticity in patients with conditions like cerebral palsy (CP), multiple sclerosis (MS), and stroke.
To see if one of these facilities is located near you, submit the form below to be contacted by an Ottobock representative.
Indication and usage
The Exopulse Mollii Suit is an assistive medical device for pediatric and adult users with cerebral palsy (CP), multiple sclerosis (MS), stroke, or other neurological disorders, who suffer from spastic and tense muscles, weak muscle activation, and related pain.
The device is recommended to be used every other day , unless otherwise specified by a healthcare provider, preferably together with physiotherapy, training, or activity.
Who shouldn’t use the Suit?
Do not use the Exopulse Mollii Suit:
If you have implanted electronic medical devices or equipment that can be disrupted by magnets (e.g., shunts)
Together with electronic life-support equipment or high-frequency operation equipment
Together with EKG-equipment
The Exopulse Mollii Suit may potentially disrupt the function of the above-mentioned types of equipment. All incorrect usage is at the user's own risk.
Stimulation should not be applied:
Over swollen, infected, or inflamed areas or skin eruptions (e.g., phlebitis, thrombophlebitis, varicose veins, etc.).
Over the neck or mouth. Severe spasms of the laryngeal and pharyngeal muscles may occur, and the contractions may be strong enough to close the airway or cause difficulty in breathing.
Transthoracically, in that the introduction of electrical current into the heart may cause cardiac arrhythmias.
Do not use the Exopulse Mollii Suit without consulting a doctor in connection with:
Skin disease, rashes, or other skin problems
Another medical device or medical treatment
Using the Exopulse Mollii Suit with the above can expose the user to unnecessary risk and is therefore at the user's own risk. Always consult a doctor.
Does the Suit cause any side effects?
Patients wearing the Suit have rarely experienced some mild, temporary side effects of the stimulation they receive. These side effects typical of electrical stimulation include:
Minor skin irritation
Surface-level skin redness
Can I keep using other treatments?
In most cases, yes, but always consult your doctor to ensure that this is appropriate for you or your loved one.
With your doctor’s approval, the Exopulse Mollii Suit should ideally be used in combination with physiotherapy, training, or physical activity. Discuss the Suit with your doctor if you or your loved one are currently receiving botulinum toxin injections or have been prescribed oral medication for spasticity.
Do not use the Suit if you or your loved one have an implanted medical device (including an intrathecal baclofen pump).
How do I take care of the Suit? Is it machine-washable?
The Suit’s jacket and pants (not the control unit) are machine-washable up to 25 times at 40°C/104°F. It may also be cleaned in a steam cabinet as often as necessary.
The control unit may NOT be placed in a washing machine or steam cabinet. Doing so will void the two-year warranty.
What kind of material is the Suit made of?
The Exopulse jacket and pants are constructed from comfortable, breathable, washable, synthetic materials. The garments contain no animal products or fibers.
Has the Suit been evaluated in any clinical studies?
The Suit’s effectiveness has been evaluated in several different clinical research programs, including both independent and Ottobock-sponsored studies. If you’d like to learn more about the results of these studies, please submit the form below to be contacted by the appropriate Ottobock representative.
The Exopulse Mollii Suit has been evaluated in several small, independent studies with published outcomes. While these studies provided some directional clinical insights, there were limitations:
Small, heterogeneous patient cohorts
Varied endpoints and evaluation methods
No assessment of immediate clinical impact
These studies and their outcomes should be interpreted carefully in view of these restrictions in their conclusions.

**Based on change in Berg Balance Scale (BBS) score in an open-label study of group-level response to Suit stimulation in patients with CP (adult and pediatric), MS, and stroke. Results of this study were evaluated in 38 patients with impaired balance and an increased fall risk (n=15/15/8 CP/MS/stroke, baseline BBS score < 45). Patients in all cohorts reported significant improvement in BBS score after 60 minutes of stimulation (T1) and after 4 weeks of stimulation every other day (T2).
***Based on change in EQ5D pain levels in an open-label study of group-level response to Suit stimulation in patients with CP (adult and pediatric), MS, and stroke. Change in pain levels was evaluated in a subset of 32 patients who reported spasticity-related pain at baseline (n=10/15/7 CP/MS/stroke, baseline EQ5D pain > 1). Patients in all cohorts reported significant improvement in EQ5D pain score after 60 minutes of stimulation (T1) and after 4 weeks of stimulation every other day (T2).
