BodyGem RMR – Resting Metabolic Rate Test Device
The BodyGem indirect calorimeter provides a precise measurement of your clients resting metabolic rate, which can account for up to 75% of their total calorie needs.
- Measured RMR is superior to estimation equations, such as the Harris-Benedict formula and Katch-McArdle formula
- Knowledge of RMR and a scientifically based Daily Calorie Budget promotes greater weight loss for your clients
- Providing RMR measurements increases your revenue
Microlife’s WatchWT MedGem device is being used to assess metabolic changes in The Biggest LoserTM contestants. “We chose to use the MedGem device based on its accuracy in comparison to other indirect calorimeters.” said Dr. Robert Huizenga, Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine at UCLA and Medical Advisor to The Biggest Loser.
Clients look to us for success
Their goals are as diverse as their needs. You know each of them needs a unique solution to reach their goals, we have the way to do it.
We can introduce you to your Metabolic FingerprintTM
A Metabolic Fingerprint, or resting metabolism, is the unique number of calories an individual burns each day without exercise or activity, and accounts for up to 75% of their total calorie needs.
An accurate Metabolic Fingerprint measurement provides the definitive answer when creating a personal program for clients.
This means that whether you’re working to lose weight, build strength, or complete your first fitness event, the plan will be based on your needs and deliver the results you are looking for.
The BodyGem device is the handheld, portable tool that gives an accurate Metabolic Fingerprint measurement result in 10 minutes or less.
- Simple – To perform a measurement, you simply breath into the indirect calorimeter, which measures your oxygen consumption (VO2), the resulting RMR number is clearly displayed on the device’s LCD screen.
- Accurate – It has been validated against the gold standard Douglas Bag, and other commonly used metabolic carts (2,3,4)
- Convenient – It’s self-calibrating, easy to administer, and provides a result in 10 minutes or less.
- Affordable – It is very cost effective.
The BodyGem benefits you by:
- Showing you your scientifically measured burn rate number reinforces that in order to lose weight, you need to feed your body, not starve it. Teaches you to work with your body, not against it, will give you long-lasting results.
- And when you get results, you begin an upward path of success, which changes your outlook on exercise and nutrition.
- It helps you avoid plateaus, as frequent testing allows you to adjust your caloric intake and eat the right amount of calories to meet your goals.
