MEDGEM METABOLIC ASSESSMENT

Your body combines food (carbohydrates, fats, and proteins) with oxygen to produce energy. The MedGem is an FDA approved metabolic analyzer, and measures the amount of oxygen the body consumes (VO2) and determines resting metabolic rate (RMR) in calories/day.  Your RMR is your minimum number of calories required for general body functions.  

Knowing this value can be a helpful tool as you work to modify your body composition and create metabolic flexibility, to reach your fitness and wellness goals. 

On the day of the test:

  • No food, beverages except water, no caffeine, short term medications (ex. ibuprofen), no exercise, nicotine

COVID PRECAUTIONS:  only 1 client can be assessed at a time, using their own disposable mouthpiece that contains a hospital-grade filter.  The hand-held device is sanitized before and after use, and clients must wash hands before using the device.  

Report Only – $30
The technician will not be interpreting the results.  You can take the report back to your Healthcare Provider or Personal Trainer for recommendations.  If at a later date you wish to schedule a full consultation to go over the results, that is an option as well.
