Quark i2m

Forced Oscillations Technique, the reference method for respiratory mechanics in children

The Quark i2m is a forced oscillation system for measuring total respiratory system impedance. It consists of a simple and fast (8 seconds) manoeuvre performed with the patient breathing normally into a measuring device. The Quark i2m can be used with non-cooperative subjects, making it the perfect solution for any pediatric department. An imperceptible, low intensity and high frequency (4-48 Hz) pressure signal is applied while breathing and after a few seconds the software provides total respiratory impedance, including the two components: resistance (R) and reactance (X).

Quark RMR

The Quark RMR is a state-of-the-art metabolic cart designed for accurate measurement of Resting Energy Expenditure (REE) and respiratory ratio (R), in a non-invasive way, through the measurement of oxygen consumption (VO2) and carbon dioxide production (VCO2) together with other ventilatory parameters. Energy requirements are monitored accurately and instantaneously either on spontaneously breathing subjects with a flow-dilution canopy hood or (optionally) to mechanically-assisted patients by inserting directly at the patient’s circuit a disposable flowmeter (Flow-REE). The number of available configurations make the Quark RMR the most versatile metabolic cart for applied research in human physiology. Quark RMR’s accuracy and reliability have been validated against Gold Standard methods either with spontaneously breathing subjects (at rest and during exercise) and mechanically assisted patients.

About us

Company details

Founded in 1980, with global headquarters in Rome (Italy), COSMED is a privately owned company manufacturing Cardio Pulmonary, Metabolic and Body Composition diagnostic equipment.Since its foundation, COSMED's primary goal has always been to improve the quality of its products and services through innovation and superior customer service.

COSMED began with the design and manufacturing of Spirometers. In the early 80s, COSMED introduced the Pony, a very innovative portable desktop spirometer  with immediate success in the European and Asian markets. More than 20,000 units are sold globally. In the mid-90s COSMED designed the first portable metabolic analyzer: the K4. This truly innovative device broke new grounds with metabolic measurement and rapidly became the best selling oxygen measurement device in Education, Sports Science and Research.

In 2011, COSMED further enhanced its already extensive offerings with the acquisition of Life Measurement, Inc. (LMI), a leading US provider of gold-standard body composition assessment systems to be used with infants, children and adults.

Presently, COSMED is an EN13485 certified company and manufactures a full range of Spirometers, Pulmonary Function, Metabolic and Body Composition assessment systems.

COSMED products are designed to meet the latest recommendations and guidelines from leading scientific organizations, including the American Thoracic Society (ATS), the European Respiratory Society (ERS), the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American College of Sport Medicine (ACSM). All COSMED products meet CE, IEC 60601-1/EN 60 601-1 and FDA 510(K) standards, as well as other various international certifications.
COSMED is a world-wide organization with direct operations in the United States, Australia, China, France, Germany, Netherlands, Hong Kong, Switzerland and the UK, in addition to a distributor network covering more than 80 countries.
