BodPod Testing

CEWP members have access to the BodPod, which is considered the gold standard body composition assessment.The BodPod uses air displacement plethysmography to estimate fat mass and fat-free mass.

The BodPod protocol consists of the participant wearing compression clothing and sitting in the BodPod for 2-3 minutes  (Scott & Powers, 2014). To prepare for this test, please refrain from eating or exercising 2 hours before your appointment. Also, please wear or bring compression clothing to your appointment.
