Fitmate GS - Desktop Indirect Calorimetry (Canopy)
The Fitmate GS is the first portable desktop indirect calorimeter using the dilution technique for accurate measurements of Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) in a clinical setting. The use of a ventilated hood makes the test highly comfortable allowing patients to breathe freely. The ventilated hood can also be used for long periods of time with minimal discomfort and no air leaks from the system. Fitmate GS allows reliable, accurate, easy and quick measurement without the need of consumables and complicated calibration procedures with gas cylinders. Fitmate accuracy has been validated against the “gold standard” Douglas Bag.
Complete product line. The Fitmate product line is designed to fit the needs of different users for specific applications and environments (clinical, research, performance, health & fitness).
Simplified approach to metabolic testing. The Fitmate measures oxygen uptake (at rest or during exercise) with the same accuracy of conventional systems with both O2 and CO2 sensors, but provides an easier test process (no calibration with gas cylinders, no warm-up).
Standalone use. The compact desktop design of the Fitmate offers an internal rechargeable battery, a large LCD screen and built-in thermal printer that allows testing without the need of a computer or main power lead.
Independently validated. The Fitmate has been validated for measuring REE (both with face mask and canopy) and VO2max (both real VO2max and prediction of maximal oxygen consumption with a sub-maximal protocol)
Accurate and reliable O2 sensor. The intrinsically linear electrochemical GFC sensor of the Fitmate has a 12-18 months lifespan and is user-replaceable.
Fitmate software. The Fitmate software suite provides the ability to manage data (save, archive, trending) measured with the Fitmate unit, plus a wider range of additional features such as energy balance, diet plan, ACSM exercise prescription, etc.
Integration with external devices. The Fitmate can be connected with third party devices for increased functionality including activity monitors (all Fitmate), pulse oximeters (Fitmate MED only), and stress ECGs (Fitmate MED only)
