The resting metabolic rate test (RMR) determines the amount of energy (calories) your body burns at rest. It is measured using a small, non-invasive, hand-held device called the MedGem, and FDA-approved medical device that may be covered by some insurance plans. This test helps accurately assess how well your metabolism is actually functioning.
This non-invasive test (BIA) can be performed in-office and used to more assess and track changes relating to body composition (lean body mass and body fat mass), hydration status, and overall cellular health. It can reflect how well your current workout plan is helping you to build muscle and lose body fat, even when the scale isn’t changing.
