Resting measurement with the metabolic analyzer from uVida DYNOSTICS

What is the benefit of a metabolic analysis at rest?

Customers of Gyms or Personal trainers have different needs: For some, the focus is on building muscle, strength and endurance, while others expect to improve their health or want to lose a few excess kilos. For this second target group in particular, a professionally conducted metabolic analysis brings great benefits. Depending on the personal actual condition at the beginning of the sessions, the requirements for effective training are highly different. The better the individual physiological conditions are known, the more precisely trainers can respond to them. This knowledge is even indispensable for the creation of targeted nutrition and training plans.

How to create a basal metabolic rate measurement?

Usually this is done via the so-called Respiratory gas analysis. A breathing mask is placed on the test person, through which Inhaled and exhaled air analyzed and the individual respiratory gas values O2, CO2 and RQ are recorded. These values can be used to create an exact inventory of the metabolic function of the person being tested. In conjunction with other parameters collected, such as the current BMI, an overall picture emerges, which in turn provides relevant data for the creation of a personal nutrition program. Particularly important are the determination of the Basal metabolic rate, i.e. the number of calories the body burns at rest per day, and the nutrient distribution, which describes, What percentage of Carbohydrates, fat and protein a person burns individually. The determination of these values is also known under the technical term Indirect calorimetry and is a common method in nutritional and sports medicine for determining the metabolic rate. For a long time, the Indirect calorimetry reserved for medical specialists. Both the operation of the devices for preparing the analysis and the evaluation of the measured values require a high level of specialist knowledge and, last but not least, appropriate calculation skills.

But how do you analyze these values?

Even with the further development of the Indirect calorimetry and simplified methods for calculating energy turnover, metabolic analysis used to be a time-consuming process for trainers. This is no longer the case: with modern analysis devices, all the necessary measurements can be carried out in just a few minutes. Specific specialist knowledge is not required, as the collection and evaluation of the measured values is completely automated.

Metabolic analyses directly in the studio or with the personal trainer: A smart analysis device with app makes it possible

All that is needed is the uVida DYNOSTICS analyzer and individual uVida app - and of course a motivated customer! After donning the respiratory mask and uncomplicated activation of the app for about five minutes at rest the composition of the inspiratory and expiratory air. The measurement results are available immediately after the test via the uVida app. This means that customers of fitness studios or personal trainers can see the results on the very first day and after a single analysis. Dietary recommendations adapted to the individual requirements of the person based on the exact measurement of their individual metabolic characteristics. The advantage for customers is obvious: they save themselves a time-consuming and expensive appointment at a sports medicine institute, but still receive a professionally performed metabolic analysis with the same precision and quality. And the fitness studios and personal trainers also benefit - support becomes more individualized, targets are easier to achieve, customer satisfaction and customer loyalty increase. Another plus point for gym owners is that the initial cost of the smart analysis tools is now not very high, and a rapid return on investment can be assumed due to improved customer loyalty and new customer acquisition.
