How it works

The PNOE Metabolic Device is a precise device used by leading sports teams, Olympic athletes and university research teams for monitoring oxygen intake and carbon dioxide exhalation during motion and at rest. In simpler words, it is an assessment tool for measuring metabolic rate. The test analyzes your oxygen expenditure and determines your Metabolic Rate (RMR) while you’re at rest, doing moderate exercise, and performing everyday activities. We use this information to create your one-of-a-kind caloric targets, so you know precisely how to nourish yourself for your metabolism.
