The Bod Pod

  What is it exactly?

  • It is the safest and most subject-friendly of all methods used to assess body composition.

  • There are no risks associated with underwater submersion, no x-rays, no electrical current, and no pinching.

  • The unique egg-shape of the BOD POD is designed to accommodate a wide variety of human shapes and sizes. The BOD POD is used routinely by NFL teams, sumo wrestlers, even people weighing up to 500 lbs. and because it's so simple to use, the BOD POD is ideal for assessing the body composition of children, the elderly, hospital patients, and those with special needs. It's that safe and easy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The  BOD POD  is an Air Displacement Plethysmograph (ADP) that uses whole-body densitometry to determine body composition (fat vs. lean). Similar in principle to underwater weighing, the BOD POD measures body mass (weight) using a very precise scale, (accurate within a gram) and volume by sitting inside the BOD POD for two fifty second increments of air measurement. Body density can then be calculated.
