TIM Adds Metabolic & V02 Testing

Sep 13 |

Therapy In Motion is proud to announce the addition of another piece of specialized equipment to add to our extensive and unique collection. The new KORR CardioCoach offers Metabolic and V02 testing capabilities that help patients manage their weight, improve fitness and athletic performance.

Metabolic and V02 testing is available at our Norman location and Therapy In Motion is fortunate to be the only facility offering these services in the greater Norman Area. The following is excerpted from the update on our servies page about Metabolic and V02 Testing :

What is Metabolic Testing?

Resting metabolic testing provides you with the exact caloric intake needed to achieve your weight management and athletic performance goals. The resting metabolic testing is a simple and comfortable 15 minute breathing test. During the test, the air you breathe out is analyzed to determine exactly how much oxygen your body consumed. The results determine your resting metabolic rate which is calculated to establish your target caloric zone. The caloric zone provides you with a specific number of calories to consume to achieve your weight management goals.

The test requires you to sit or lie in a comfortable position and breathe through your mouth. Abstain from eating or drinking fluids for at least four hours prior to the test. Your true resting metabolic rate is best measured in the morning on an empty stomach.

What is V02 Testing?

V02 testing provides you with a precise heart rate to maintain during cardio exercise allowing you to maximize weight loss or gain. Your V02 Max Test measures the amount of oxygen your body uses at different exertion levels while you exercise on a a bike or treadmill. A mask is worn during a short workout (15-25 minutes) in order to measure your oxygen intake. The recorded information is then used to calculate your individual target intensity zones. These intensity zones will give you the specific heart rate range to maintain during different levels of exercise intensity.

For best results, your V02 Max Test should be performed in the afternoon. You should wear comfortable exercise clothes with appropriate tennis shoes.

It is imperative that you complete the health history form and informed consent for participation in exercise testing prior to your appointment.

How much do the tests COST?

Having the necessary tools to finally achieve your weight management goals is now more affordable than ever.
