Dr. Scott McDoniel of Microlife on 9News talking about metabolic testing with the MedGem indirect calorimeter.

The Microlife BodyGem and MedGem are the same type of indirect calorimeter, except that the MedGem has gone through the FDA-approval process as a medical device. Since it is an FDA-approved indirect calorimetry device, it can only be sold to licensed clinicians.

The MedGem indirect calorimetry device is a clinically-validated and FDA 510K-cleared, class II, medical device for measurement of patient resting metabolic rate (RMR).

The MedGem is an easy-to-use, handheld device that accurately measures oxygen consumption (VO2) to determine resting metabolic rate (RMR)*.

Measurements made with the MedGem are easy to administer and provide accurate results in only a few minutes.
