Whole-body room calorimeter

We received from Maastricht Instruments the order for the installation of a single Room Calorimetry Advance chamber for the AIX University in Marseille, which also includes Hypoxia Training (Altitude Simulation).

A room calorimeter measures a patient’s energy expenditure or metabolism under various climactic conditions. The measurement technique – known as room calorimetry – measures the difference between O2 and CO2 concentrations consumed and expelled. This difference can then be used to determine the energy consumption.

Application areas:

  • Obesity and type 2 diabetes 
  • Exercise physiology and sports science 
  • Nutrition
  • Age, gender and lifespan metabolic studies 
  • Clinical investigation 
  • Food psychology 
  • Pharma 
  • Child metabolism and energy expenditure 
  • Sleep
  • Circadian rhythm
  • Thermoregulation
