What is it?

Incontinence is when you leak urine (a little or a lot) during physical or everyday activity. If you leak pee when sneezing or coughing, this is ‘stress incontinence’. If you experience a sudden and uncontrollable urge to pee, this is called ‘urge incontinence’. 

MUTU Evidence for incontinence:

What is it? 

Diastasis recti, AKA Divarication of the Recti, DRA or Rectus Divarication, is the widening of the gap between the 2 sections of the Rectus Abdominis abdominal muscle. The split occurs at the Linea Alba, the midline collagen structures of connective tissue at the front of the abdomen. 

MUTU Evidence for Diastasis Recti:

  • 94% of women with diastasis recti (separation of abdominal muscles) reported an improvement after using MUTU System

What is it? 

Pelvic organ prolapse or POP is when 1 or more of the organs in the pelvis descend from their normal position and bulge into the vagina. 

It feels like a heaviness or dragging sensation in your pelvic floor, or you may have trouble fully emptying when going to the bathroom. You may have been diagnosed by a medical professional as having POP. When diagnosed by vaginal examination, the prevalence of prolapse is 50% of all women, so it’s very common.

MUTU Evidence for Prolapse:

  • 88% of women suffering from symptoms of Pelvic Organ Prolapse reported significant improvement after using MUTU System
  • In trials, 100% of women with POP symptoms experienced improvement in symptoms within 3 weeks of MUTU

What is it? 

Pregnancy, breastfeeding, lifting your baby from the crib or your toddler from the floor, wrangling car seats, high chairs and strollers, carrying a child on one hip, heavy groceries from the car… the list of why Moms’ backs hurt is long and hard to avoid,

MUTU Evidence for back pain:

  • Back pain is the most talked-about result of using MUTU amongst our members and many credit just 3 weeks of the program with banishing back pain completely.

What is it? 

Painful sex (dyspareunia) is a common but neglected and underreported problem for women. Only around 8% of women report painful sex3 but this is unsurprisingly considered to be an underestimate. 

Our clinical trial of 100 women asked if participants avoided sex due to pain or discomfort, and 18% said they did.

MUTU Evidence:

  • Of the respondents in our trial who said they experienced pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse 61% had seen an improvement by Week 3 on the programme, and 93% had seen an improvement by 9-12 weeks
  • A 2018 clinical survey of 900 women showed that 89% of women who experienced pain or discomfort during or after sexual intercourse reported an improvement after doing MUTU System
  • Trials showed 90% of those experiencing pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse, saw an improvement by Week 9, and 93% by Week 12.

What is it? 

It has been proven that the physical changes a woman experiences after having children can impact her mental health Postnatal depression, PTSD following traumatic birth and mental health concerns can happen to anyone. 

Urinary incontinence doubles the risk of postnatal depression. We know that pelvic health affects mental health and MUTU is proven to improve symptoms. If you are struggling with postnatal depression or mental health issues during or after pregnancy, please know you are not alone and that there is help available to you.

MUTU Evidence for maternal mental health: 

Trial respondents were asked if they had noticed a change about how they feel about their body and what it is able to do. 

  • By week 3 of MUTU, 87% had seen an improvement, and by week 12, 95% had seen an improvement.

One respondent from our clinical trial who featured on BBC News stated that she did not need the anti-depressants prescribed by her GP for postnatal depression, since she had started MUTU.

MUTU does not require you to insert, ingest or implant anything. It is non-invasive, completely safe and has no negative side effects provided exercise instructions and modifications are correctly followed. Privacy, comfort and a safe space are assured in our expert-led community.

Women's Health Physio Claire-Anne

“I love MUTU system and have recommended it to many of my postnatal mums as well as friends and family over the years. As a postnatal mum wanting to get back into exercise it can be really confusing and overwhelming when looking into the most appropriate exercise after having a baby, and not everything that is branded as being suitable for postnatal mums always is. Wendy’s MUTU system is brilliant! A great example of holistic women’s health!
