MetaMax Portable metabolic testing using VO2 analyzer
DESIGNED FOR OUTDOORS
Designed for outdoor performance diagnostics, the new METAMAX® 3B Portable metabolic testing using VO2 analyzer allows maximum wireless ranges of more than 1,000 m. That makes spiroergometry extremely independent and flexible. Therefore you can test your athletes and probands under real training and competition conditions. You get much more significant test results comparing with data collected under labor environments. For more on Vo2 testing, please click here:
The METAMAX® 3B can be used in nearly every kind of sport due to its low weight (580g) and it’s safe and flexible, back or chest wearing harness system. The technology is designed for the use under extreme environment conditions: For instance the METAMAX® 3B is frequently used at expeditions like the Xtreme Everest expedition in the Himalaya, was in the outer space for research work on astronauts, was used in very humid regions like the equator and in dry and high-temperature deserts around the globe.
TELEMETRY AND BLUETOOTH® Experience an impressive range
The new Bluetooth® Long Range technology allows much more stable data transmission with maximum ranges of more than 1,000 m. Even in densely populated regions with high exposure to electromagnetic fields, the new technology increases the robustness against such disturbing factors. This ensures the highest standard of reliable transmission for all test data between METAMAX® 3B and the Metasoft® Studio software, ensured over considerably longer distances.

In addition, METAMAX® 3B BT is of Low Energy. Now and in the future, this BT standard ensures the highest compatibility with external sensors, such as those for heart rate, SpO2, and velocity devices etc.
THE NEW Cortex Remote Control
The new touch-screen RemoteControl from CORTEX allows you to see METAMAX® 3B’s essential spiroergometry data such as heart rate, oxygen uptake, carbon dioxide output, respiratory exchange ratio, breathing rate, tidal volume, minute volume, velocity and load during a field test on a handy device.
This way, you constantly receive valuable feedback from METAMAX® 3B without having to take along a PC or laptop. You also have the option to use the RemoteControl to carry out all calibrations required in the field test.
GPS measuring for the identification of velocity and altitude change
A fast-working high-performance GPS module is used to measure the velocity and location of a test person in a field test. Based on the calculated data of velocity and altitude change, the spiroergometric results give an objective picture of the per- son‘s stress factors in a field test.
BATTERY AND BATTERY LIFESPAN
Thanks to its energy-efficient modules, the lifespan of the internal battery of METAMAX® 3B is six hours. A replacement battery is included in the product set. If in some cases this is not sufficient, an external optional battery allows you to extend the usage by additional eight hours.
STORAGE AND DATA MANAGEMENT
METAMAX® 3B Portable metabolic testing using VO2 analyzer meets the highest requirements of data management and data security that one expects from a medical product. All measured data are permanently stored in an internal memory – regardless of whether or not a data connection exists to the PC or the RemoteControl. The internal memory allows permanent storage of up to 400 tests.
Monitoring of heart function with pulse belt, 1 or 3-channel ECG belt
A continuous and valid measurement of the heart rate is extremely important when evaluating the test results. METAMAX® 3B makes no compromises in regard to quality of medical products: It uses the certified wireless Polar® H7 strap. You also have the option of fixing a comfortable and low-artifact 1- or 3-channel ECG strap.
FLEXIBLE CARRYING SYSTEM
The award-winning METAMAX® 3B design was developed taking ergonomic aspects into account. The device‘s low weight (580g) and the option of either wearing it at your chest or on your back make it very comfortable and safe in all situations.
VALID GAS EXCHANGE ANALYSIS
Using an ergonomically formed mask, a small portion of your breathing air is transmitted via the volume flow sensor. To ensure optimal spiroergometry, it is crucial that the gas mask fits perfectly and is fixed tightly. Therefore the masks are available in various sizes and forms. In addition, the design of the mask offered by us allows you to reliably check the correct fit of the mask before starting the measuring process.
HEART RATE AND GPS*
A fast-working high-performance GPS module is recommended to measure the velocity and location of a test person outdoors. A continuous and valid measurement of the heart rate is extremely important when evaluating the test results. Use the certified wireless Polar® H7 strap or fix comfortable low-artifact 1- or 3-channel ECG straps.
One device, double benefit.
Using the optional stationary kit, the new METAMAX® 3B can be enhanced to a full stationary system. In this case, electricity is supplied via an external medical power unit. Thanks to an extended sample line, the METAMAX® 3B used in the lab must not be fixed on the body. This way you will have twice the benefit and it is 100% compatible to your spiroergometry test setup.
