The MetaCheck is an affordable metabolic analyzer that provides an accurate, professional metabolic rate measurement. Measuring a person’s metabolic rate allows you to construct an effective weight loss plan based on individual caloric needs. In the past, these measurements have only been available by using cumbersome, expensive equipment, and were generally only available at hospitals. The MetaCheck is simple to use and maintain, using disposable testing supplies and requiring no additional computer to operate. To download a MetaCheck product brochure, click here.
Why Choose MetaCheck?
Direct Oxygen Measurement
MetaCheck directly measures the concentration of oxygen a person breathes out. Each client merely breathes through a simple mouthpiece as all the exhaled air is collected and analyzed. Because there is a direct correlation between oxygen consumed and calories burned (4.813 calories for every milliliter of oxygen consumed), an accurate measurement of oxygen consumption is an effective measurement of calorie consumption.
Mixing chamber Technology
A mixing chamber is considered the “Gold Standard” for 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 health and fitness facilities of any size.
Adjustments for barometric pressure, temperature, and humidity are key to an accurate VO₂ measurement. The MetaCheck measures these parameters during each routine calibration cycle, then automatically compensates to standard (STPD) conditions.
Other Metabolic Analyzers require the clients to breathe through a measurement device located at the mouth. The air each person breathes in will pass through the same mechanism as countless clients before them. 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. After each test, the disposable is thrown away and there is no need to clean equipment between clients.
The MetaCheck 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. Everything you need is at your fingertips!
