BOD POD GS-X
The 4th generation of the world’s first and only Air Displacement Plethysmograph (ADP) using whole-body densitometry to determine body composition in adults and children
The BOD POD is the world’s only Air Displacement Plethysmography (ADP) 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 invasiveness of Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DXA) as well as the difficulties associated with underwater submersion in hydrostatic weighing. The combination of accuracy, safety and speed has resulted in the BOD POD now being recognized as the practical Gold Standard for body composition assessment from a long list of universities and research centers. The BOD POD is ideal for assessing the body composition of special populations such as: elderly persons people with disabilities subjects weighing up to 250 kg children and young children from 2 to 6 years with the Pediatric Option The BOD POD’s ability to test virtually all populations makes it the most flexible option for frequent testing and longitudinal tracking of body composition changes over time.
