The medical device MOWOOT has been developed and tested by the healthtech startup usMIMA biotech 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 medical device that reproduces very precisely the abdominal massages that the therapists of the Institut Guttmann administer to their patients to relieve the chronic constipation.

Dr. Eloy Opisso, executive coordinator of Institut Guttmann’s Office of Research and Innovation, explains how MOWOOT was developed.

The founders of usMIMA met in Moebio’s dHEALTH BCN program, a disruptive talent development initiative powered by Biocat and inspired by Stanford Biodesign.

The usMIMA team has developed MOWOOT to improve the quality of life of those affected by constipation. And both, to ensure MOWOOT’s success and to complete the information already available in their clinical trials, they are personally assisting you with advise to resolve your doubts about the product.
