The ten children included in the study used Mollii for 1 hour every other day during a period of 6 weeks. Data was collected via a semi-structured interview both with the children and their parents, to evaluate factors such as feasibility, practicalities and experiences. The results showed, that Mollii was perceived to be relaxing and easy to include in everyday life. The parents reported positive changes such as improvement in attention, energy levels, concentration, sleep, improved standing posture, joint positioning, motor skills and reduced pain.
One of the parents reflected: “(…) at the beginning of the trial, she (the child) complained about pain in her back, pain in her left leg, pain in her right leg. By the end of the study, she only complained about pain in her right foot.”
The positive experiences described by families makes the Mollii suit a worthwhile and important consideration when looking at the strategies available for early intervention for children with cerebral palsy and like disabilities. This report presents an overview of the results pertaining to the qualitative component of the overall feasibility study. The quantitative part of the study is expected to be published in the beginning of 2020.
