Basic Metabolic Measurement with Fitmate GS Canopy

Modern dietary practice and technology enables us to bypass estimates by general population equations and accurately measure Basic Metabolism [Basic Metabolism (BMR) is the minimum amount of energy required to maintain the organism’s essential functions for life]. The amount of BMR energy is necessary for respiratory function, cell-metabolism, blood circulation as well as the maintenance of the body’s temperature. Since BMR represents 70% of our total daily energy requirements it is crucial information for determining daily energy needs for each person aiming either in loss, stabilization or gaining weight using the indirect caloric measurement. The individual is examined having met certain circumstances prior to the measurement, lies down in calmness, machine’s Canopy is put above him and calories that his body burns during rest are being calibrated through the exhalation of oxygen.

Basic Metabolism Measurement is a painless, easy and fast indirect calorimetry test that shows you the exact amount of calories your body needs daily and examines weather your metabolism is low, normal or high. It is measured in a quiet environment and lasts 10-15 minutes.

Measuring Basic Metabolism is one of the key pieces in defining personalization in administrating the Nutrition Plan and in achieving well-defined goals, including a detailed overview of the individual’s history and body composition analysis.
