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.
