Please note, the BodPod service will be unavailable from 15 April until further notice.
The proportion of total fat mass and lean body mass represents an individual's body composition. Body composition is important for athletic performance, and is a greater determinant of health outcomes than body weight alone. An individual can be of average weight and still carry high, even risky levels of body fat.
The BodPod is a highly accurate, non-intrusive, extremely rapid method of measuring body composition. Utilising a technique called air displacement plethysmography, the client sits comfortably in a chamber for two to three minutes whilst the volume of air displaced by the body is measured and used to calculate body fat percentage. This method provides invaluable information for anyone wishing to monitor changes in their body composition for health and/or fitness related purposes.
The BodPod offers the following unique features:
- It delivers instantaneous results
- It uses state of the art technology
- It's accurate and reliable for all age groups and body dimensions
- It's time-efficient
The BodPod is an excellent service for sportsmen and women wishing to measure the effectiveness of their training regimes on reducing body fat and increasing lean mass.
