In the single case study, which was conducted at Community Neurological Rehabilitation Service in England, Mollii was used by a male with primary progressive multiple sclerosis and ataxic symptoms. Before the use of Mollii, the patient was not able to stand, due to the severe ataxia. After the intervention period the patient was able to walk 100 metres using a pulpit frame with assistance and he also demonstrated increased independence when feeding and drinking.
The author of the study concluded: “It was clearly evident that the Mollii suit was very beneficial to control ataxic movements and demonstrate significant improvements in functional tasks.”
