Q. How accurate is the BOD POD?
The BOD POD has been found to be as reliable and accurate as hydrostatic (underwater) weighing, long known as the industry’s “Gold standard” for measuring body composition. Statistically insignificant differences in body fat measurements (0.2%) found in comparison studies with underwater weighing establish the BOD POD as a precise means of measuring body composition. Other convenient means of body composition measurement such as bioelectrical impedance, anthropometry, and skinfold methods have been shown to produce larger differences in measurements when compared to underwater weighing.
