Metabolism Test Online vs Measuring Metabolism A study published by Dr Yue Deng (ASU School of Engineering) and Dr Barbara Scott (University of Nevada School of Medicine) compared the resting metabolic rates calculated using predictive equations to those measured using… Read More
What is the Lactate Threshold Test?
Following a 10 minute warm-up period, the workload increases every 4 minutes. This process continues until you stop the test. The number of increases can range between 5 and 9 (20-36 minutes total in length). Before the test, we will take a resting finger prick blood sample and at the end of each stage.
The resting metabolic rate assessment measures calories burned at rest. An RMR test is an ideal starting point for anyone managing their weight.
This accurate test uses a Breezing Metabolics Analyser.

Here are some materials that compare BodyMetrix vs DEXA, BodPod, BIA and Calipers.
Studies have taken place using ultrasound to measure fat and muscle since the ’50s. In fact, ultrasound scanning to regulate body composition in beef cattle has been commonplace for decades.
Here at Cartwright Fitness we’ve gone a bit crazy for the PowerLung and wanted to tell you why!PowerLung can improve breathing and performance by using it for just a few minutes each day. From those with limited mobility or disability to elite athletes – it benefits all.Breathlessness can be a real barrier for some people, […]
In short, YES but lets delve a little deeper. Ultrasound was first used to measure body composition in the 80’s, yet studies and validations have taken place since the 50’s.
Measuring fat thickness is an accurate technique to measure body composition. The benefit of ultrasound is that you can also measure muscle thickness too.
BodyMetrix uses fat and muscle […]
BodyMetrix SystemYou may have heard of BodPod. It looks a bit like a space shuttle that measures body composition using plethysmography. Plethysmography measures changes in volume within the body using air displacement. It’s a lot like hydrostatic weighing but using air instead of water.A metal cylinder goes into the BodPod to calibrate before a measurement, […]
