Brief Summary:
The objective of this study was to examine the effect on spasticity and function of multifocal transcutaneous electrical stimulation incorporated in a 2-piece (Mollii) suit.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Spastic Cerebral Palsy Device: TENS incorporated into the Mollii suit Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
In this prospective cohort study, the participants (children with predominantly spastic CP, GFMCS 3-5) wore the suit for 1 hour every second day for 24 weeks. The investigators evaluated level of spasticity using the modified Ashworth scale (MAS) and other related measures before initiation, after 4, 12, and 24 weeks. Two motor related smart goals were defined and evaluated by the goal attainment scale (GAS). GMFM-66 and posture and postural ability scale (PPAS) were performed.
