Provenance
The metabulator was originally purchased around 1955 and used at St. Francis Hospital in Smith Falls, Ontario; possibly used by a Sister Mary Josephine; the donor purchased the machine from the hospital in the 1970s when the newly amalgamated institution was selling off redundant equipment, after which it was stored in her home; the oxygen tank and scale came from a second metabulator which was virtually the same but in poorer condition.

Research Facts
Used to measure a patient's basal metabolic rate (B.M.R.), a diagnostic test in the evaluation of thyroid function (this can not be determined through blood tests); the basal metabolism of an individual is the lowest energy requirement of the body (or the least amount of heat produced by the body) while it is at rest.
