Founded in 1980, with global headquarters in Rome (Italy), COSMED is a privately owned company manufacturing Cardio Pulmonary, Metabolic and Body Composition diagnostic equipment.
Since its foundation, COSMED's primary goal has always been to improve the quality of its products and services through innovation and superior customer service.
COSMED began with the design and manufacturing of Spirometers. In the early 80s, COSMED introduced the Pony, a very innovative portable desktop spirometer with immediate success in the European and Asian markets. More than 20,000 units are sold globally. In the mid-90s COSMED designed the first portable metabolic analyzer: the K4. This truly innovative device broke new grounds with metabolic measurement and rapidly became the best selling oxygen measurement device in Education, Sports Science and Research.
In 2011, COSMED further enhanced its already extensive offerings with the acquisition of Life Measurement, Inc. (LMI), a leading US provider of gold-standard body composition assessment systems to be used with infants, children and adults.
Presently, COSMED is an EN13485 certified company and manufactures a full range of Spirometers, Pulmonary Function, Metabolic and Body Composition assessment systems.
COSMED products are designed to meet the latest recommendations and guidelines from leading scientific organizations, including the American Thoracic Society (ATS), the European Respiratory Society (ERS), the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American College of Sport Medicine (ACSM). All COSMED products meet CE, IEC 60601-1/EN 60 601-1 and FDA 510(K) standards, as well as other various international certifications.
