Used BodyGem System Recommendations

by David on July 19, 2010

Buying a used BodyGem can present several challenges:

The most important issue with a used BodyGem is accuracy. Sensors degrade over time, so an older BodyGem may have sensors that aren’t up our standards.

With a used unit, you don’t know how it’s been treated.  If the unit has been dropped, cleaned improperly, etc… it can affect the calibration.

The original models have O2 sensors that can’t be recalibrated at the factory.
New units with a warranty are either recalibrated or replaced.

Another issue with a used BodyGem is filter compatibility. The original style of BodyGem units had mouthpiece filters that had a flowtube attached.  The newer models feature a flowtube that the filters screw into, to reduce wear and tear.

The last issue with a used BodyGem is support. New BodyGem system kits come with a 2-year warranty and access to 1-800 support.

We have financing available for the BodyGem System Kit, to help you get started.

We also have a lower priced entry-level BodyGem 40 System Kit, that is designed to help you start providing RMR measurements, with full support and marketing materials.
