When it comes to Weight Loss, Metabolic Testing gives you the exact measurement you need to succeed!
Having your metabolism checked with the KORR Reevue at the Family Nutrition Center is as easy as 1-2-3!
The REEVUE measures the oxygen that the body consumes. Using this measurement it calculates number of calories that an individual burns at rest in a day*. This technique is called Indirect Calorimetry. This information assists in nutritional assessment and Medical Nutrition Therapy.
The REEVUE is simple to use and provides on-screen and printed results in just 10 minutes.
1…RELAX. REEVUE measures resting metabolic rate. It is important that you be able to reach a resting state during your test. Digesting a large meal, as well as taking stimulants, such as caffeine, can raise your metabolic rate and should be avoided prior to your test.
2…GET HOOKED UP. You will be able to sit comfortably while being tested. The technician will then place a nose clip on your nose and you will be given a disposable mouthpiece to breathe through. This mouthpiece is connected to the REEVUE by a hose that will measure how much oxygen you are breathing out. It is very important that you breathe only through the mouthpiece so this measurement will be correct. Both the mouthpiece and the tubing are sterile items that will be used only for you.
3…BREATHE. Finally, you just sit back and breathe. The REEVUE will indicate when it has calculated your metabolic rate. This takes anywhere from 5-10 minutes. The more relaxed and even your breathing, the quicker it will be able to determine your resting metabolic rate.
IT IS JUST THAT EASY!! In just 10 minutes, your Registered Dietitian can know precisely how many calories your body is burning. Your diet can then be tailored to maintain the right caloric balance. Proper nutritional assessment by Korr Medical Technologies can put you back on the road to better health!
How does the REEVUE measure metabolic rate?
The human body consumes a fixed amount of oxygen per calorie burned. The REEVUE measures the amount of oxygen the patient's body is consuming. Based on the measured oxygen consumption rate, the REEVUE then calculates the Resting Energy Expenditure (REE). Or, in other words, exact amount of calories that person is burning.
