Metabolic Testing

BodyGem is a revolutionary new handheld device that measures resting metabolism, providing an accurate scientific measurement of the number of calories a person burns each day at rest. Understanding a person’s unique metabolism and monitoring changes provides ultimate control in managing nutrition, weight and general fitness. There are several ways to estimate Basal Metabolic Rate, but they can vary as much as 30% up or down from the actual metabolic output determined by a measurement from an indirect calorimeter device.

Frequently Asked Questions

Scientifically Based

The BodyGem is the first portable handheld device to use advanced sensor technology to measure oxygen consumption, the universal fuel of metabolism. The sensors in the BodyGem accurately measure the volume of air, oxygen content, temperature, barometric pressure and relative humidity. The coefficient of variation for repeated testing is less than 1.5%

What is Metabolism

Metabolism is the body’s process of combining nutrients with oxygen to release the energy required to power our bodies. This energy, measured in calories, is used to keep the body functioning, and to fuel daily activities and exercise. Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is the number of calories the body needs just to maintain basic body function and typically represents 60 to 75 percent of a person’s total metabolism. The key weight management is balancing caloric intake with the calories we burn. Until now we haven’t been able to conveniently measure calories burned.

WHy Measure RMR?

Resting metabolism varies from person-to-person. Current methods of estimating RMR are inaccurate for many individuals. This leads to ineffective weight management plans. In addition, everyone’s metabolism will change over time because of weight loss, caloric restriction, age, exercise, or change in body composition. Frequent measurement provides valuable information required to adjust your client’s health and fitness plans.
