Quark RMR testing helps clinical nutritionists monitoring the nutritional status of ill subjects and preventing malnutrition to worsen the course of the disease and prolong hospitalization. Quark RMR testing additionally allows for the individuation of the energy substrate to improve through parenteral nutrition and evaluate the progresses in the therapy.
Quark RMR is a new generation meta-bolimeter for the measurement of Resting Energy Expenditure (REE) and energy substrate utilization through indirect calorimetry. Ease of use, functionality, high accuracy and afford ability make Quark RMR an indispensable instrument for the exact determination of the daily energy needs in critical patients.
Canopy hood is used for in-bed monitoring or testing comfortably seated in a couch. Indicated for long lasting measurements while sleeping and with grand obese subject.
