MetaCheck Metabolic Analyzer
MetaCheck directly measures the concentration of oxygen a person breathes out.
Each client merely breathes through a simple mouthpiece as all the exhaled air is collected and analyzed. Because there is a direct correlation between oxygen consumed and calories burned (4.813 calories for every milliliter of oxygen consumed), an accurate measurement of oxygen consumption is an effective measurement of calorie consumption.
A mixing chamber is considered the “Gold Standard” for a Metabolic Measurement. In the past, this system has been complicated and expensive, making it only practical for ICU’s and research departments.
Adjustments for barometric pressure, temperature, and humidity are key to an accurate VO₂ measurement.
Uses a one-way valve in the disposable MetaBreather mouthpiece.
This draws in fresh room air with each inspiratory breath and eliminates concerns about cross contamination.
