Mollii is a so-called functional garment. It consists of a pair of trousers, a jacket and a detachable control unit that sends electrical signals to the user via electrodes on the inside of the garment.
The suit has 58 electrodes that can be combined in different ways and a control unit that is individually programmed for each user. The computer program, which is used to program the suit, can adjust the active electrodes, the intensity and which muscles are to be activated with current, and according to the manufacturer it should be easy to use the device at home.
