New device tracks metabolism by analysing the breath

By

A new, hand-held, portable device and app has been launched that measures metabolism in real-time by analysing the breath.

Lumen gives insights into how the body metabolises fats and carbohydrates by measuring carbon dioxide levels, indicating the type of fuel being used to produce energy

Daily reports give users insights into how the way they eat and exercise impacts their ability to shift efficiently between using fats and carbohydrates as sources of energy.

The app also shows how metabolism is affected by sleep, physical activity, and nutrition and then gives personalised meal plans.

The aim of Lumen is to enable users to monitor and improve their metabolic health to improve their metabolic flexibility.

The product was developed by Michal and Merav Mor, twin sisters with PhDs in Physiology, who conceived the idea while training for (and winning) an Ironman race.

“The only way to test metabolism was through an long laboratory process," says Michal Mor, "leaving regular people with zero visibility into their metabolic rate and only haphazard ways of improving it."

The device was validated by a study conducted by San Francisco State University.

Lumen is currently priced at £299, to include a travel case, charging dock, USB-C cable, and customer support.
