Basal Metabolic Testing
Introducing the MedGem® Indirect Calorimeter
The MedGem indirect calorimeter is a state-of-the-art, FDA cleared handheld device that accurately measures oxygen consumption (VO2)
to determine resting metabolic rate (RMR).
The measurement is easy to administer and provides accurate results in only a few minutes.
The easy to use device allows for personalization and accurate development of individual nutrition and weight management goals.
Microlife's WatchWT MedGem device is being used to assess metabolic changes in The Biggest Loser™ 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™.
When you get results, you begin an upward path of success, which changes your outlook on exercise and nutrition.
It helps to avoid plateaus, as frequent testing allows you to adjust your caloric intake and eat the right amount of calories to meet your goals.
Introducing the Metabolic Fingerprint™
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 your total calorie needs.
An accurate Metabolic Fingerprint measurement provides the definitive answer when creating a personal program for you.
This means that whether you're working to lose weight, build strength, or complete your first fitness event,
the plan we prepare will be based on your needs and deliver the results you are looking for.
