The BOD POD is the premier system for measuring and tracking body fat and lean mass using patented air displacement technology. Developed with grant funding from the National Institutes of Health, the BOD POD technology is based on the same whole-body measurement principle as hydrostatic weighing (the “dunk tank”). Because of its high level of accuracy, ease-of-use, and fast test time, the BOD POD has quickly become the method of choice for measuring body composition.

The BOD POD offers:

  • Proven accuracy using whole-body density measurement
  • Fast test time - about 5 minutes
  • Ability to accommodate all types of populations including children, the elderly, and the disabled
  • Safe for repeated testing and is non-invasive
  • Ease of use for both subject and operator with both audible and visual prompting

The BOD POD´s roomy interior accommodates a wide variety of human shapes and sizes. That´s why it´s used routinely to measure the body composition of professional and collegiate football players, basketball players, and even sumo wrestlers! The BOD POD has successfully been used by people weighing up to 500 lbs. It´s also ideally suited for wheelchair athletes, those with special abilities, the elderly, and children. And, because the BOD POD is non-invasive, it is completely safe for regular and repeated testing.

Dr. Grazer utilizes this amazing tool to assist with pre and post surgery weight loss programs for his patients.
