COSMED products to appear on the new James Bond movie: SKYFALL™
COSMED is proud to announce that it was selected to outfit the physiology assessment laboratory in the 23rd James Bond adventure movie: SKYFALL
James Bond movies have always featured leading-edge products and technologies. The selection of COSMED recognizes its innovative equipment and know-how in the field of functional evaluation and diagnostic technologies.
COSMED provided the SKYFALL production with its latest metabolic measurement systems, including: the Quark CPET metabolic cart, the K4 b2 wearable metabolic system, the Fitmate PRO desktop metabolic monitor, the BOD POD body composition tracking system, together with its state of the art high performance treadmill model T170. COSMED products were used on-screen by the MI6 medical staff to assess James Bond’s cardio respiratory performance and fitness level.
COSMED’s staff were on hand during the filming at the Victoria Tunnel locations in London, just across the London Bridge, to help with all technical aspects of setting up and running the equipment and ensuring great authenticity in the way the tests are conducted.
We hope results can thrill theatre audiences worldwide as they see which type of examination we should perform to know how fit and physically capable Bond or any other normal person really is. All this can be available in SKYFALL, the 23rd James Bond adventure movie, a unique opportunity to make a large audience aware of a type of assessment usually domain of niche and highly professional markets.
