Weight Management meets Breath Analysis
The Voyager Breath Monitor is bringing a new level of science to weight loss management. Trend and understand your ketone levels at home to help reach your weight management goals.
Unlike a bathroom scale and step counters, ketone analysis is accurate and directly correlates to what is taking place inside your body.
The only other accurate way to detect ketones in your body is through painful blood tests. Unlike blood tests, breath analysis is a painless, accurate, and convenient way to detect ketones in your body.
The Voyager App uses patented technologies to validate your measurements. This is key to properly interpreting ketone levels.
The Voyager App allows you to share your data with weight loss professionals or coaches.
How it Works
The Voyager Wellness Breath Monitor works in conjunction with the user's mobile device and two disposables: a cartridge and a breath bag. Using it is simple:
Step 1. Insert the cartridge.
Step 2. Exhale into and insert the breath bag.
Step 3. Start the test and get the result on your mobile device.
The Disposable Kit
Each weekly disposable kit contains a new breath bag and 7 disposable cartridges. Users are encouraged to monitor their breath ketones each morning before eating, exercise or taking medication.
Easy to Visualize. Graph results to track historical readings and compare to today’s reading.
Measurement Tags. Tag results with meaningful categories to help understand high points and low points.
Statistics. Compute statistics. Only validated measurements are used for your Personal Best and Baseline.
The Fat Burn Number
The Fat Burn Number is an intuitive, proprietary unit of measure that reflects ketone (breath acetone) levels as a wellness indicator. The Voyager App allows you to plot the Fat Burn Number each day and associate the trend of the Fat Burn Number with certain events, like diet changes or setbacks.
Ketones can be measured in different ways: through blood, breath or urine. Breath analysis through the Voyager Wellness Breath Monitor provides certain key benefits.
Learn about Ketosis
Your Body’s Fuel Tank
The body generates energy from various sources: carbohydrates (e.g., sugars, starches), fat and protein. On a "normal" (non-low carbohydrate) diet, the primary fuel is glucose. On a low carbohydrate diet, the fuel utilization changes and the primary fuel is stored body fat. This type of diet promotes regular lipolysis (fat burning), which ultimately leads to weight loss.
Ketones: The Exhaust from Burning Fat
Fat metabolism results in the production of three ketone bodies: acetoacetic acid, acetone and β-hydroxybutyric acid. The presence of ketones in the blood/urine or acetone in the breath is an important metabolic indicator of fat-burning.
Benefits of Ketosis and Ketone Analysis
Get feedback daily. Keep yourself motivated or identify problem areas so that you can make changes.
Customize your diet program. There is no single perfect diet for all people. Voyager Wellness helps you customize your diet based on your metabolic response to different foods and exercise.
Troubleshoot. Learn if there are triggers (like certain foods) that may be preventing you from seeing results on the weight scale.
Burn fat. Help confirm that you are metabolizing fat even if the weight scale is not showing results. Remember that your body weight is an aggregate of water, muscle, fat and bone. Your Fat Burn Number is specific to fat metabolism.
Voyager Wellness has been verified and validated in several ways. This is particularly important given the newness of ketone monitoring science.
- Performance Testing. Performance Testing. Invoy has conducted performance testing according to the Clinical & Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) for precision (EP-05), limit of detection/blank (EP-17), linearity (EP-06), and others
- Electrical Safety and Interference Testing. The Voyager Wellness Breath Monitor has been tested by an outside lab and certified compliant with AAMI/ANSI 60601-1, 2005 and IEC 60601-2 Ed. 3, 2007, and IEC 60601-1-11, 2010.
"Invoy’s Voyager gives us a novel, pain-free and data-driven tool. Our physicians believe that breath acetone will become a new standard, facilitating objective interactions with our patients on weight-loss programs."
"Voyager Wellness has helped patients at Duke stay compliant on weight loss programs. It has also helped us customize diet programs to achieve a patient’s goals. Increasingly, ketone monitoring is becoming a key part of weight management practices, especially those that target low carbohydrate diets."
Should I Purchase Voyager Wellness?
Although ketone monitors have been available for decades, they have not been used at home on a regular basis. Invoy has run various clinical studies to help us understand how best to use a ketone monitor in a home setting. Please answer these questions to help us determine if you are a good candidate for ketone monitoring at home.
