BodPod Body Composition System

In response to COVID19, BCOM and all facilities are currently closed.  When we are able to reopen, we will be limiting the services available to the public, so as to prioritise safety of staff and students.  This web page will be updated when our health screening and fitness assessment facilities reopen.  We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Those looking to monitor the effectiveness of their training or weight loss programmes should consider having a BodPod body composition measurement at BCOM.

The impact of excess fat on health and athletic performance is important and may be masked by an apparently healthy weight. Athletes may be more concerned with increasing overall lean mass which can  also be tracked using the BodPod .

The BodPod measures body fat percentage and lean mass, including calculation of estimated total energy expenditure and resting metabolic rate. It is used to accurately and efficiently measure body mass.

Users sit comfortably in the BodPod chamber for two short readings , while the volume of air displaced by the body is measured. This, together with an accurate weight reading is used to calculate body fat percentage.

On average women should have less than 32% body fat and men less than 20% to be considered healthy.
