The medical device MOWOOT has been developed and tested by the healthtech company usMIMA in collaboration with doctors and physiotherapists of the neuro-rehabilitation center Institut Guttmann.

Through hundreds of interviews with patients at Institut Guttman, the usMIMA team verified the enormous impact that chronic constipation has on the quality of life of people with spinal cord injuries. usMIMA investigated for months to develop a solution that would avoid the use of laxatives or reduce it to a minimum until they found the key: a new therapy inspired by the abdominal massage that the therapists of the Institut Guttmann administer to their patients to relieve the chronic constipation.
