• Q-NRG+

    A New Generation of Metabolic Technology, for Quick, Accurate, Intuitive and Affordable Indirect Calorimetry

    Q-NRG+ is the first Indirect Calorimeter specifically intended for the measurement of Resting Energy Expenditure (REE) in patients who are mechanically ventilated or spontaneously breathing and for healthy subjects.

    Q-NRG is a unique product, resulting from the COSMED’s collaboration with world-class institutes in the field of nutrition support in intensive care units.

    This collaboration has made possible the development of an accurate metabolic system easy to use and at the same time resolving all typical pitfalls of the indirect calorimetry technology (no warm-up time, no gas calibrations, etc.).

  • Q-Box

    Accuracy and simplicity for the new benchmark in Body Plethysmography

    The Q-Box is the standalone body-box from COSMED for Gold Standard measurement of Static Lung Volumes (TLC, RV, TGV) and Airway Resistance and Conductance (RAW, GAW) through the body plethysmography technique.

    Spirometry is standard in the Q-Box, together with the Respiratory Mechanics module, and both can be performed either inside or outside the cabin.

    Q-Box unique high quality components, highly accurate pneumotach and super fast analyzers guarantee accurate results and make the Q-Box standout from the competition.

    The large cabin volume provides comfort and ease-to-access both for adult and special population.

    The glass and aluminum cabin structure provides large transparent surfaces, reliable air-tight closure and easy-to-disinfect walls


    The 4th generation of the world’s first and only Air Displacement Plethysmograph (ADP), the Gold Standard for two compartment Body Composition model

    BOD POD technology is based on the same operating principles as a hydrostatic (underwater) weighing, measuring body mass and body volume by whole-body densitometry within a two-compartment model to determine body composition.

    The equipment provides an excellent inter-intra device reliability and is entirely suitable for measuring body composition in a very diverse population range including elderly persons, people with disabilities, obese subjects weighing up to 250 kg, and children (2-6 years old with the Pediatric Option). The efficacy of BOD POD has been confirmed by more than 2.000 peer reviewed research studies describing a wide range of subjects in both clinical and non-clinical environments.

    The latest generation of this unique device delivers new hardware and software design to optimize the experience for both test subjects and operators alike.

  • K5

    A breakthrough in the field of exercise physiology and human performance assessment

    COSMED is proud to introduce K5, the 4th generation of the most popular wearable metabolic system, and a breakthrough in the field of exercise physiology and human performance assessment.

    The K5 is the most innovative and versatile metabolic system ever created. The K5 reaps the benefits of more than 25 years of experience with metabolic systems.

    It features a list of new and unique characteristics that expand the scope of metabolic testing from clinical exercise testing to performance assessment.

  • Vivatmo

    FeNO measurement, fast, reliable and accessible also to the asthma patient

    The new Vivatmo breath analysis devices from Bosch measure the fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) in human breath.

    The test is quick, painless, reliable, and the measured value provides an indicator of the inflammatory activity of allergic asthma.

    Vivatmo systems are maintenance-free, easy-to-use cordless measuring devices designed either for professional use (Vivatmo pro and Vivatmo me) or for home use (Vivatmo me).

Fitmate MED

The first compact metabolic system for assessing functional capacity and risk stratification

  • Fitmate desktop metabolic systems introduce a new approach for the measurement of oxygen consumption at rest and during exercise in both clinical and health & fitness settings.

    Each Fitmate desktop device is equipped with a rechargeable battery, a large LCD screen and a built-in printer that allows testing without a computer or main power lead.

    All Fitmate systems manage test results and store information inside its internal memory, ready for upload to PC software (included).

    Fitmate Med Specs
  • Key Features
    Complete product line. The Fitmate product line is designed to fit the needs of different users for specific applications and environments (clinical, research, performance, health & fitness).

    Simplified approach to metabolic testing. The Fitmate measures oxygen uptake (at rest or during exercise) with the same accuracy of conventional systems with both O2 and CO2 sensors, but provides an easier test process (no calibration with gas cylinders, no warm-up).

    Standalone use. The compact desktop design of the Fitmate offers an internal rechargeable battery, a large LCD screen and built-in thermal printer that allows testing without the need of a computer or main power lead.

    Independently validated. The Fitmate has been validated for measuring REE (both with face mask and canopy) and VO2max (both real VO2max and prediction of maximal oxygen consumption with a sub-maximal protocol)

    Accurate and reliable O2 sensor. The intrinsically linear electrochemical GFC sensor of the Fitmate has a 12-18 months lifespan and is user-replaceable.

    Fitmate software. The Fitmate software suite provides the ability to manage data (save, archive, trending) measured with the Fitmate unit, plus a wider range of additional features such as energy balance, diet plan, ACSM exercise prescription, etc.

    Integration with external devices. The Fitmate can be connected with third party devices for increased functionality including activity monitors (all Fitmate), pulse oximeters (Fitmate MED only), and stress ECGs (Fitmate MED only)
