How is the Resting Metabolic Rate Test performed?
At Body DEXA fit we use an ECAL Metabolic Monitor, an indirect calorimeter that is scientifically validated and specifically designed for measuring resting energy production.
This process requires you breathing for 5 minutes through a mouth-piece which is connected to ECAL via gas sampling lines. A nose clip is used during testing to prevent respiration through the nasal passage.
Your Resting Metabolic Rate measurement is made by analysing the amount of oxygen your body uses and the amount of carbon dioxide your body produces.
