Energy Testing utilises standard technologies that have been available for almost 100 years and are the cornerstone of current metabolic and exercise research. However current technologies are complex, expensive, require specialist training and are therefore, not generally available to primary practitioners.

At ETS, we believe there is a need for affordable technology for health professionals and others to better manage common energy disorders, such as obesity and fatigue. We are also providing significant opportunities for commercial organisations that have interests in Human Energy Management. We incorporate the key elements for scientific weight loss, low energy and chronic fatigue, nutrition, exercise and lifestyle management.

This website is designed for health professionals who are interested in learning about the products and services that ETS can offer and who wish to know how to ensure their patients can obtain the most reliable information about their unique metabolism.

Energy Disorders

"Medicine fails to solve many of today’s common, complex diseases, because the fundamental paradigm is wrong: the medical establishment has spent far too long focusing on anatomy and ignoring energy—specifically, mitochondria.”

Mitochondrial and metabolic medical conditions are also known as energy disorders. The metabolic process involves a complex network of hormones and enzymes that not only convert food into fuel (energy) but also affect how efficiently the fuel is used. The efficiency of the mitochondria to generate energy strongly correlates to health as the process of manufacturing energy involves the oxidation of nutrients in the mitochondria of the cell.

Prevalence of Energy Disorders

Obesity, Type II Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Insulin Resistance are examples of energy disorders that have become increasingly more prevalent over the past 20 years. While practitioners are able to confirm a positive diagnosis for most energy diseases, very few practitioners are able to confirm the physiological cause of these conditions. For example, a Body Mass Index (BMI) of greater than 30 confirms that a patient is obese BUT does not provide the practitioner with an explanation of why the patient is obese.

Energy Testing

The ability to accurately and quickly measure metabolism and determine how the body metabolises various food/fuel types eliminates guesswork and provides a validatory control system for effective nutritional practice. Frequent measurement would allow practitioners to adjust caloric intake and caloric substrate ratios to ensure long term weight and energy management goals were met.

The Gold Standard for measuring Energy Expenditure is a technology called Indirect Calorimetry. This technology has been available for a number of years, particularly in research and sports science departments. The technology is complex, the interpretation of the data more so, and both require specialist training to understand and use. However, there is a clear need for a simple effective clinic based technology that can provide accurate detailed metabolic measurement without the need for specialist physiological knowhow.

"Commonly used equations for the prediction of Resting Energy Expenditure (REE) are not appropriate for moderately or severely obese patients. Caloric prescription for weight reduction must be tailored to individuals rather than recommending the same calotic intake to persons with varying metabolic rates."

Closely monitoring the energy production of a patient allows the health professional to detect various energy disorders at a relatively early stage. For example, the poor delivery of oxygen to a patient’s cells will significantly decrease their energy production and usually result in this patient experiencing low energy and prolonged fatigue. Further, this person will be more prone to becoming overweight due to their poor energy expenditure.

With this objective data, the practitioner is better able to manage their patient’s health by addressing the poor delivery of oxygen and prescribing a tailored, individual nutritional programme to improve mitochondrial efficiency, improve energy levels and prevent weight gain. Regular assessment can monitor progress and allow for amendments to dietary advice.

Introducing ECAL

ECAL is a proprietary Energy Testing System, developed in Australia and exclusively licensed by ETS that can provide rapid, accurate and affordable information for health professionals and their patients.

ECAL is a specially designed Indirect Calorimeter, similar to those used by Metabolic and Sports Science Research departments throughout the world. With a footprint less than a subnotebook it is designed to sit on a practitioner’s desk, with a USB link to a a PC or laptop.

At the heart of the system is proprietary software (ECHealth), developed in conjunction with ETS, that provides individualised reports for health professionals and patients, containing key energy measurements and a unique ‘my physiologist’ database that interprets and analyses the data and provides insights and recommendations to the practitioner and/or client.

ECHealth is based on 9 therapeutic algorithms developed by Physiologists and Physicians and based on 20 years of managing client energy and metabolic disorders.
