  • Key Features
    Individual Assessment. Q-NRG Max uses Indirect Calorimetry to assess metabolism. Test results faithfully represent patients' metabolic status providing precious indications on the fitness status or response to nutrition plans.

    True Aerobic Capacity. The Q-NRG Max, based on gas exchange, provides the true aerobic capacity (VO2max) and an extensive CPET analysis in addition to conventional heart rate measurements, thus enabling the tailoring of training programmes based on individual needs.

    Comprehensive metabolic analysis. Q-NRG Max is designed to provide a comprehensive analysis, from substrates utilization to maximal and sub-maximal excercise testing, with a validated technology and best-in-class gas analysers, meeting the highest standards of metabolic assessment.

    Easy workflow. An intuitive user interface together with an easy workflow allow to operate the device through all its functionalities with main instructions prompted along the procedures.

    Compact. Q-NRG Max is a lightweight, battery operating device. The compact design guarantees extreme portability without renouncing to the comfort of a wide color LCD touchscreen.

    Ready to use. Q-NRG Max has been designed to reduce operations and measurement time. System does not require warm-up time nor pre-test or monthly calibrations. All operations can be performed with a few taps on the screen.
