usMIMA is a team of scientists and engineers that has developed a solution for chronic constipation. The group won second place in BIO-Europe Spring’s 2017 Healthtech Startup competition. MowoOT is for use in people with chronic constipation; for example, those with spinal cord injuries or multiple sclerosis. The device, a small console that administers a colon-specific abdominal massage, is already on the market in Spain and is expected to be launched in several other European countries throughout 2017.
