P4MI CLINICAL TOOLS
EXPLORE THE CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY THAT MAKES P4 MEDICINE AS UNIQUE AS ITS PATIENTS!
CONTINUOUS GLUCOSE MONITORING (CGM) TECHNOLOGY
The Abbott FreeStyle Libre is FDA approved in adults with diabetes to inform insulin dosage decisions. At the P4 Medicine Institute, we use the exact same technology to help non-diabetic and prediabetic patients understand their unique responses to foods and activities, and to improve their everyday lifestyle decisions in order to prevent disease transitions and promote wellness.
PHILIPS AFFINITI ULTRASOUND
[More info coming soon!]
When it comes to weight loss or gain, it can be hard to tell if diet and exercise are working. Simply stepping on a scale often does not provide us with enough information to assess our progress. At the P4 Medicine Institute, we utilize a state-of-the-art InBody bioelectrical impedance (BIA) device that allows us to determine body fat percentage, lean mass, visceral fat area and the distribution of these things throughout your body. With this we can see how your body loses and/or gains both fat and muscle, and how best to implement a program to help you achieve your personal goals.
COSMED QUARK CPET
Aerobic fitness is a critical component to health, longevity and wellness. Much like testing your car for emissions and fuel efficiency we can test your heart, lungs and muscles in much the same way. At the P4 Medicine Institute, we do this by conducting an exercise stress test, more officially called a cardiopulmonary exercise stress test (CPET). By dynamically measuring your oxygen consumption, carbon dioxide expulsion, blood pressure response, heart rate and ECG during progressively difficult exercise, we learn much about how your cardiovascular system operates in the face of stress and fatigue. This information is the strongest independent predictor of future life expectancy in healthy and sick individuals (regardless of sex or race).
THE P4MI EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY LAB
At the P4 Medicine Institute, we believe that everybody is an athlete. We also believe that a healthy body and a healthy mind go hand-in-hand. The human body is incredibly robust and strong, and was designed to move. Through the use of our exercise physiology lab, we can assess how your body performs and use this information to design a personalized program to help you achieve peak fitness and function. Our philosophy is that exercises should be adapted to fit the individual, and not the other way around. Everybody is capable of safe and strong movement. Let us help you feel and function at your best, regardless of where you are in life.
