Preventous is one of only a few facilities in Calgary that provides metabolic testing of this kind. Everybody burns energy (calories) at a different rate, to perform fundamental functions such as breathing and circulation. This is where we often hear conversation about ‘slow’ and ‘fast’ metabolisms. Your resting metabolic rate is the number of calories your body requires in a state of rest. While most programs offer a metabolic rate estimate based on a standardized formula calculation, your dietitian will perform a direct measurement of your individual metabolism to determine the ideal energy and nutrient need for you. Our technology provides on-screen and printed results in just 10 to 30 minutes. The printout is ideal for maintaining records and will help you and your clinician understand the results of the test.

This is a comprehensive assessment that takes into account your age, gender, height, weight and body composition. Body composition is determined by Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA). BIA is considered one of the most exact and accessible methods of screening body fat.
We use the latest medical-grade, multi-frequency technology to provide a comprehensive range of body measurements, including segmental body fat analysis, muscle mass, levels of visceral (‘belly’) fat, and intra/extra cellular body water. Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis is non-invasive, and one of the most thorough and reliable ways to measure body composition, clinically comparable to DEXA (dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry) and hydrostatic (underwater) weighing.
