BOD POD Body Composition Measurement Testing

Quick, Convenient & AccurateBod Pod new2

What are the benefits of BOD POD® Body Composition Measurement?
BOD POD® is highly accurate, and can detect even small changes in body fat and lean body mass (i.e., muscle, bones and organs). Body composition is one of the best indicators of overall health. The feedback you receive from your BOD POD® assessment can be used to measure the success of your nutrition and/or exercise program, monitor for obesity, a risk factor for major diseases, like stroke and diabetes, help you lose or gain body fat safely and fine tune your athletic training regimen.

How long does an assessment take?
You will be sitting inside the BOD POD® cabin for about 3 minutes. During that time, the door will be opened and closed between two 50-second trials. Total time including goal setting and reviewing the results is approximately 15 minutes.

What should I expect?
Simply sit comfortably and quietly (no laughing or talking), relax and breathe normally and the
BOD POD does the rest. Sounds relating to the valves opening and closing may be heard, but
most people are unaware of the slight pressure changes that take place.

How accurate is it?
The BOD POD which uses air displacement technology is considered to be the gold standard of body composition measurement. The range of error for this test is ± 1 to 2.7%.

In order to have the best possible results, follow these simple instructions:

  • No food, drink or exercise at least 3 hours prior to testing.
  • Use the restroom before testing, if necessary.
  • Don’t apply any lotions or skin creams prior to your test.
  • Remove glasses and jewelry (if possible).
  • Wear minimal, form-fitting clothing.
    • Men: Thin fabric shorts, lycra/spandex-type swimsuit or single-layer compression bike-style shorts (no padding
    • Women: Lycra/spandex-type swimsuit or bike-style shorts and sports bra (no wire or padding)
  • Because of the sensitivity of the equipment, schedule subsequent visits under the same conditions (time of day, hydration levels, amount of facial and body hair, same day of cycle (women), etc.).
  • A swim cap will be provided to compress any air pockets within the hair.
