Whole-body room calorimeter
Room calorimeters are an invaluable, powerful tool in metabolic research studies. By using indirect calorimetry the research possibilities increase immensely in a wide range of clinical and research settings. These systems allow long term measurements (up to 7 days), without the limitations of a canopy or a face mask. They allow researchers to gain new insights in the dynamics of human energy expenditure, substrate oxidation and so much more. A room calorimeter allows studying a person’s energy metabolism over longer durations under different circumstances. The systems consist of three different parts: the room itself, climate/circulation control and an analysis unit: the Omnical metabolic system.
