METABOLIC TESTING MAKES
WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMS MORE EFFECTIVE BY…
- Evaluating Program Efficacy
Periodic assessment of RMR will show the effects of the treatments
on the client’s body and allow adjustments to the caloric goals.
- Stabilizing Weight Loss
Regardless of the method used to lose weight, a patient’s RMR
will change during weight loss. Monitoring that change allows you to make necessary changes for your patient throughout the weight-loss process.
- Showing Clients Their “Normal” Metabolism.
Most overweight people are convinced they have a slow metabolism. Taking a measurement removes this excuse and can be very encouraging and motivating.
- Pinpoint Caloric Weight Loss Zone
Does your program allow flexibility when setting calories limits? If so, knowing a baseline RMR is invaluable. Practitioners can use the RMR to calculate a caloric goal unique for their patients personal metabolic rate.

WHY TEST WITH KORR EQUIPMENT?
It’s simple to use.
KORR equipment has a simple user interface that assists the operator from start to finish. No training or certification is required. It does not require a computer or software, and even the printer is optional. Everything you need is at your fingertips!
Adjustments for barometric pressure, temperature, and humidity are key to an accurate VO2 measurement. The ReeVue measures these parameters during each routine
KORR uses a one-way valve in the disposable MetaBreather mouthpiece. This draws in fresh room air with each inspiratory breath and eliminates concerns about cross contamination. The disposable is thrown away and there is no need to clean equipment between each patient.
It uses “Gold Standard” technology.
A mixing chamber is considered the “Gold Standard” for Indirect Calorimetry (more commonly referred to as a Metabolic Measurement.) In the past, this system has been complicated and expensive, making it only practical for ICU’s and research departments. KORR advancements in technology make this method feasible for the typical practitioner.
