The Elektrodress is a full bodysuit that helps patients recover from neurological disorders such as Parkison’s disease, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatism. Invented by Fredrik Lundqvist, a Swedish chiropractor, the suit is embedded with a series of electrodes that vibrate to stimulate muscles. Through sessions with a qualified therapist, the rehabilitative suit has helped individuals improve mobility and relaxation.

The invention was first conceptualized in the Swedish version of the reality TV show Dragon’s Den, where Lundqvist pitched his idea to a panel of venture capitalists. Lundqvist was soon awarded with 2 million Swedish kronas ($300,000) in investment funding. The Elektrodress is planned to be launch at the end of 2012.

Watch the video below to see how the Elektrodress works.
