It is common for people to have frustrations with various dieting methods and exercises since they are uncertain about which routines suit their body types. Human bodies, by nature, tend to conserve fats and burn carbohydrates for energy. MetaNose is able to tell you how and when your fat burning is activated and elevated. The non-invasive device is the best companion for individuals who are on ketogenic diet, exercising or simply trying to lose fat.

MetaNose is made of environmentally sustainable materials, including those for assembly and packaging. Recyclable materials are used to reduce the overall production cost while achieving high quality and producing less emission that is harmful to the planet.

The Science of MetaNose

MetaNose determines the metabolic condition of the user from a single breath, by utilizing a state-of-the-art Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) acetone sensor and a signal processing algorithm, which measure the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in exhaled breath and analyze the oxidative stress of lipid metabolism. The proprietary algorithm enables MetaNose to provide accurate information about blood glucose metabolism (burning of carbs) versus lipid metabolism (burning of fat) to personalize user experience toward different fitness goals and monitor the effectiveness of ketogenic diet and workout routines.

Dr Gui, the clinical collaborator from a Singaporean hospital group, said “Being a non-invasive method without the pricking of needles or the urine strips, MetaNose can provide an accurate and affordable solution to the market. The device also provides recommendations on diet, fasting, workout, overall fitness and health. This technology reflects the trend of point-of-care solutions, and it allows consumers to detect and monitor their own metabolic health from the comfort of their home.”
