Fitmate GS: The first desktop Indirect Calorimetry system with Canopy for research and clinical applications
COSMED is glad to introduce Fitmate GS, the first portable desktop indirect calorimeter using the dilution technique.
The Fitmate GS comes with a ventilated canopy hood and performs accurate measurements of Resting Energy Expenditure (REE, RMR) in both clinical or research settings. Provided with a compact blower and a canopy hood, it is the ideal companion for bed-side applications and for interdisciplinary nutritional monitoring by hospital Nutrition Support Teams (NST).
The use of a ventilated hood make 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 consumable and complicated calibration procedures with gas cylinders.
Fitmate GS is the ideal companion for determining proper nutrition support in different application fields such as:
- Hospital Nutrition Support Team (NST)
- Critical care/ICU
- Burn units
- Eating disorders, Anorexia/Cachexia, Bariatric surgery
- Nutrition support in Home care, long-term care facilities, Nursing homes
