What is a resting Metabolic Rate test?
Metabolism is the process of converting food (calories) into energy. The efficiency with which your body does this is referred to as your metabolic rate. Many factors affect a person's metabolic rate: weight, age, body composition, hormone levels, and gender, making it a highly unique number.
We use a state-of-the-art KORR Analyzer and methods to assess human performance and metabolism to ensure accuracy and quality test findings.
How does the test work?
The KORR Analyzer measures the oxygen you consume to calculate calories burned. All of the air exhaled by the patient must be collected to measure oxygen consumption. Two one-way valves in the KORR MetaBreather ensure that only fresh air is inhaled and all exhaled gas passes through the hose and into the machine. A nose-clip ensures that all exhaled air is analyzed. You can determine if your metabolism is fast or slow and plan weight management programmes accordingly.
The report details out calories burned at rest, which is an indication of metabolic rate and gives you suggested caloric intake.You can customize a precise diet plan based on your metabolic rate.
The report also provides information relating to your fuel substrate utilisation; the percentage of carbohydrates and fats that constitute your fuel sources.
