BOD POD

BOD POD is considered the practical Gold Standard for body composition assessment. The BOD POD is the world’s only Air Displacement Plethysmography system using whole body densitometric principles to determine body composition (fat and fat-free mass) in adults and children.

Applications

The BOD POD Express is used in a wide variety of segments:


  • Health & Wellness
  • Corporate Wellness Programs
  • Weight Management
  • Elite Athletic Training
  • Military and Public Safety
  • Nutrition Counseling
  • Bariatric Clinics

The BOD POD is the world’s only Air Displacement Plethysmography system using whole body densitometric principles to determine body composition (fat and fat-free mass) in adults and children. In comparison to other body composition assessment methods, the BOD POD’s air displacement plethysmography has eliminated the radiation of Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DXA) as well as the difficulties associated with underwater submersion in hydrostatic weighing. This is why the BOD POD is considered the practical Gold Standard for body composition assessment. The BOD POD is ideal for assessing the body composition of special populations suchas children, the elderly, the disabled, and subjects weighing up to 250 kg. It is also completely non-invasive, making it especially suitable for frequent, longitudinal tracking of body composition and metabolic changes over time.
