About the MedGem® Indirect Calorimeter
Have you ever wondered how many calories you burn a day? If you never have, then it’s time you understand that your metabolic rate plays a key role in maintaining a healthy weight. Measuring your metabolic rate can be easily done with the MedGem Indirect Calorimeter. The MedGem Indirect Calorimeter is an ultramodern medical device that determines your resting metabolic rate or RMR. This rate is important for several reasons.
If you are trying to lose weight, or simply want to maintain a healthy weight, then your RMR can help. RMR determines whether your metabolic rate is fast, slow, or normal, because it lets you know how many calories you use when you are at rest. This can serve as a point of reference to determine how many calories you need each day,as well as how you should eat, especially if you want to accelerate weight loss.
The convenient, handheld MedGem Indirect Calorimeter is now popping up in doctor’s offices, health clubs, and med spas. In addition, health professionals are realizing how RMR can help them set up personalized nutrition and weight loss programs for clients.
The Metabolic Fingerprint™
The RMR is also referred to as the metabolic fingerprint,because it is a measure of your metabolic rate. This information is not only important for weight loss purposes, but is also essential in creating an efficient nutritional program. Such a program will ensure that the body is getting the amount of nutrients required for optimal function. Knowing your RMR can also help to identify the early onset of disease, and treat nutritional imbalances.
Regardless of your health needs, we can create a plan that will give you the results you desire.
