Inova Bariatric Surgery Uses the MedGem to Customize Diet Plans for Their Weight-Loss Patients

Microlife’s MedGem is an FDA-approved handheld device for the measurement of RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate.) RMR is the number of calories that your body burns to maintain essential functions like heart rate, brain activity and breathing. The MedGem device provides an exact measurement of how many calories you should eat.

It is known to be highly accurate and provides results in a few minutes. Studies show that weight-loss patients with a customized meal plan tailored to their caloric needs are much more likely to succeed, compared to those who have a plan based on an estimate of their caloric needs.
