The Mowoot II system is designed to replicate the massage that Physiotherapists would provide to address chronic constipation.
This system is easy to use and is cheaper than a chronic treatment with laxatives or enemas while also being less invasive and less irritating.
What are the advantages of Mowoot?
It is scientifically proven that abdominal massage is an effective treatment against constipation, but you have to do it every day and you have to know how to do it. MOWOOT achieves the same effect as that massage.
It is cheaper than a chronic treatment with laxatives or enemas, is less invasive and is not irritating.
It is safe, does not apply any more pressure than necessary and many users report that it is relaxing.
With MOWOOT you will:
- Go more often to the bathroom and spend less time in there.
- Reduce the discomfort caused by the evacuation.
- Relieve the discomfort and bloating caused by accumulation of gases because MOWOOT helps to pass them.
- Forget about the feeling of incomplete evacuation.
- Increase the appetite and the desire to include new foods in the diet.
How does MOWOOT work?
MOWOOT is very easy to put on and can be set up in less than a minute. The massager belt is placed around the abdomen and is adjusted by a velcro so that the blue stitching is right in the center of the abdomen and the tubes exit on the left side of the belt.
Once the belt has been adjusted, you can turn on the desktop by changing the switch on the back side to the ON position.
Choose how long you want the massage to last (we recommend using it every day for 10 to 20 minutes) and with what intensity you want it (we recommend starting with level 3, the highest, and lowering the intensity as we notice improvement).
Both things, duration and intensity, are chosen on the control panel of the desktop. Then press the PLAY button and the massage will begin. It is as simple as that.
The second time you use MOWOOT is even easier: as the duration and intensity of the last massage will be stored in the device, you will receive the exact same massage again when you push PLAY, until you decide to change it.
MOWOOT, the automated colon-specific massage unit, consists of: desktop device (console), massage belt, connectors and power supply.
MOWOOT, the automated colon-specific massage unit, comes in four sizes depending on the perimeter of the massager belt:
- Perimeter Small size: between 65 – 85 cm

Frequently asked questions:
MOWOOT reproduces in a very precise way the abdominal massage that physiotherapists administer to:
- Activate the natural movement of the large intestine.
- Encourage intestinal transit.
- Improve stool consistency (makes it softer).
- Eliminate abdominal bloating.
- Reduce evacuation time.
What MOWOOT does not do is working on the anal sphincters. If you have a problem with the muscles of the sphincters, you will reduce the time of evacuation with MOWOOT, but to be able to evacuate you will still need an external physical stimulus (suppository, microenema or digital stimulation).
We strongly advise that you discuss this with your Doctor or Medical professional.
The massage provided by the device reinforces the movement that your intestines should do naturally. If you use it daily between 10 and 20 minutes, you will observe the following changes:
- The frequency of defecation will increase: you will go more often to the bathroom.
- The fecal consistency will improve: your stools will be softer and it will be much easier to expel them.
- You will spend less time with each evacuation.
- You will no longer have the feeling that you have not finished emptying your bowel completely.
- You will get rid of gases and your abdomen will be less bloated.
- You will have more desire to eat and to include new foods in the diet.
The effectiveness of MOWOOT for solving constipation has been proven by a clinical study presented at the Congress of the Society of Geriatric Medicine of the European Union.
All participants increased the mean number of stools per week and reported a significant improvement in stool consistency and a noticeable reduction in defecation time.
It depends on each patient and can be days or weeks. There are patients who already notice that their intestines work better after the first couple of days.
Unlike other solutions, such as laxatives, MOWOOT improves its effectiveness over time and increases its benefits with every use.
In any case, within two months you should have noticed the beneficial effect of MOWOOT.
We recommend a minimum of 10 to 20 minutes a day for the abdominal massage to be effective. The time of use depends a lot on the severity of your constipation (more time of use, more benefit) and your personal likes (the massage is very pleasant).
It is not necessary to use MOWOOT several times a day, but there is no problem in doing so. There are patients who have told us that they use it up to 3 times a day.
The recommended use is 20 minutes a day. You can use MOWOOT only once a day for 20 minutes, 2 times for 10 minutes each or even more, according to your likes and necessities.
It is advisable to always use MOWOOT at the same time of day to help the bowel return to a healthy routine. Ideally you should use it in the morning, after waking up, but it can be any other time of day that works for you.
The important thing is that you are relaxed and you do it without haste. If you do not have time in the morning, do it at night before bed or in the afternoon while reading or watching TV. You should find the moment that best fits you, the important part is that you are constant.
