Bod Pod-Kiran Chand

Body composition (particularly body fat percentage) can be measured in several ways.I like the Whole Body Air Displacement otherwise known as the Bod Pod.Whole-Body Air Displacement Plethysmography (ADP) is a recognized and scientifically validated densitometric method to measure human Body composition. ADP is based on the same principles as the Gold Standard method of Hydrostatic weighing, but through a densitometric technique that uses air displacement rather than water immersion. Air-displacement plethysmography offers several advantages over established reference methods, including a quick, comfortable, automated, noninvasive, and safe measurement process, and accommodates various subject types (e.g., children, obese, elderly, and disabled persons)
