One thing holds true in weight management and that is Energy Balance. Simply put, if you burn more energy than your body absorbs, you will lose weight and vice versa. When food is absorbed into your body it must either be burned as energy or stored as fat.
Achieving your ideal weight begins with finding the right balance of exercise and caloric intake. But each person’s balance is unique. Your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) can put you on the path to healthy living. Everyone has a unique number – find out yours.
• Measures the number of calories your body burns at rest.
• Is determined by measuring the amount of oxygen you consume while resting.
• Tells you how many calories you would burn in a day – if you rested the entire day.
• Can help you determine how many calories you should be eating each day to maintain, gain or lose weight.
We use the latest ReeVue Indirect Calorimetry to measure Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR).After the test, we will calculate your ideal caloric intake based on your activity level and individual weight goals.

What to Expect - It is as easy as 1-2-3!
REEVUE measures resting metabolic rate. It is important that you be able to reach a resting state during your test. You should avoid activities such as exercise or stressful situations that will prevent you from relaxing for at least two hours prior to your test. Digesting a large meal, as well as taking stimulants, such as caffeine, can raise your metabolic rate and should also be avoided prior to your test.
2. GET HOOKED UP.
You will be able to sit or lie 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.
Finally, you just sit back and breathe. The REEVUE will indicate when it has calculated your metabolic rate. This takes about 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, we will 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!
