Body Composition Assessment by Air Displacement Plethysmography
BOD POD GS Body Composition in Adults and Children

Body composition by Air Displacement Plethysmography for research, clinical and sport applications

  • Gold Standard accuracy using whole-body densitometric principles

  • Excellent test-to-test repeatability

  • Fat and fat-free measurements

  • Fast test time (5 minutes total test time) (see demo video)

  • Safe, non-invasive, and ideally suited for frequent testing

  • Flexibility in testing special populations, including young children (Pediatric Option accessory)


  • The BOD POD Gold Standard Body Composition Tracking 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. Each BOD POD Gold Standard is a complete turnkey system with a dedicated computer system, the ability to measure thoracic gas volume (TGV), and data management capabilities.
