Body Composition

How to prepare for your BOD POD appointment:

  1. No food, water or exercise for at least 3hrs prior to testing
  2. Subject should be dry, relaxed and at normal body temperature
  3. Wear minimal clothing:
    • Men: form-fitting speedo/spandex type swimsuit or compression shorts without padding
    • Women: form-fitting swimsuit, or lycra/spandex compression shorts and sports bra without padding

The BOD POD Gold Standard Body Composition System is an air displacement plethysmograph which uses whole-body densitometry to determine body composition (fat and fat-free mass) in adults and children and can accommodate a wide range of populations.

A full test requires only about 5 minutes and provides highly accurate, safe, comfortable, and fast test results. All Bod Pod results are reviewed by a nutritionist and explained in great detail to the client.
