Mollii suit / Elektrodress

Hi, is there anyone out there with any first hand experience of the Mollii suit (formally known as Elektrodress) by the Swedish company Inerventions

    Hi, my son is 5 and has had the suit for a few months.
    in my honest opinion if you are looking for a miracle cure-this is not it. BUT the Mollii suit has almost removed the spasticity in my sons limbs, better than physio, Botox, splints etc, and the Mollii suit will only be beneficial if you do constant physio during or after the suit.
    for example, the Mollii suit relaxes the body but as my son cannot use his left arm very well, we have to encourage him to use it all the time! As he continues to use his arm he is building up muscle in his arm which then counteracts the spasticity when the Mollii suit wears off. 

    So yes if you believe having the range of movement to develop muscle and overcome the spasticity then the suit is the best thing for it.

    any other questions please let me know
