“I was born with moderate to severe high-tone cerebral palsy. My earlier years involved various surgeries and therapies to improve my quality of life. I reached a point in my early teens where the effort and physical pain of being stretched, bent and manoeuvred for such little gain was too much. I stopped doing my prescribed exercise routines from that day forward. 

It was an email that sparked my curiosity in the MOllii suit technology. I attended the assessment and after the allotted time passed, the garment was removed (and) I noticed a strange calm in my thought process, almost zen-like, then when I got up into my walking frame and walked around the room I felt physically lighter, my eyes had glazed over, my skin had flushed and I walked  with a more upright posture. I decided to make my way back to my wheelchair and get strapped in… the amount of resistance (my legs) provided when bent was significantly reduced. (There was) less tension in my overall posture, my shoulders were sitting back and I wasn’t rising (my left leg) when I spoke. To those affected by high tone cerebral palsy, I suggest talking to a MOllii therapist and booking an initial assessment.” – Eamon, MOllii user.

“As an incomplete paraplegic, I suffer from sore swollen feet as well as muscular and nerve pain along with limited movement in my legs. After 3 sessions of the MOllii suit I am already noticing a difference in my circulation, the movement in my toes and feet is less restricted. The suit also feels very comfortable and has a calming effect on my whole body. I would highly recommend anyone who is curious about what benefits it could have for you, to give it a go.” – Sarah, MOllii user.

“The MOllii Suit has been a life-changer for me. In late 2012 I had a Blighted Ovum pregnancy – a condition where a fertilised egg attaches to the uterine wall, but an embryo doesn’t develop. From that event, Coeliac Disease (diagnosed late 2013) and Bipolar Type II and Depression (diagnosed mid 2014) were triggered, and I have been struggling with my mental health ever since. 

When my Depression and Bipolar are at their worst I am a barely conscious zombie, everything is heavy, so heavy I cannot move and I cannot think because my head (feels like it’s) full of cotton wool, my face droops on the right-hand side, I slur like I’ve been drinking and I stutter. I can’t hold down a job, can’t keep friends and I can’t deal with stress. There have been times where I have seriously contemplated ending my life. Medications have helped me to have a life that approached normal (however) they have caused damage. I have gained 10kgs, I have psoriasis that doesn’t respond to treatment and tremors that effect my ability to sew or eat without spilling food on myself.

After two months with the suit I feel bright and light, my memory is improving, and my brain doesn’t feel like it’s running in loose sand anymore. I feel like the person I was before I got sick. I have started cutting down on my medications with the supervision of my psychiatrist, it’s early days (but) the suit has shown me there can be a light at the end of the tunnel, and the possibility of a future, and I will be forever grateful to everyone that put it in my path.” – Beccie, MOllii user.
