USciences is no longer taking public appointments.
Seemingly off a science fiction movie set, the BOD POD has landed in University City
. University of the Sciences’ exercise science and wellness management program* recently acquired the newest advancement in body composition assessment technology for training and educating students.
Shaped in the mold of a space capsule, the BOD POD is the most accurate way to test a person’s body composition (body fat and muscle mass). Used by leading universities, sports teams, fitness clubs, military organizations, and weight management centers, in roughly five minutes, the BOD POD determines body composition in adults and children.
“A typical body composition scale as well as bioelectrical impedance handheld devices are largely based on hydration levels and are affected by medical factors or menstruation and pregnancy. Other body composition tools can also be inaccurate due to human error such as with skinfold calipers,” said Karin Richards, director of the exercise science and wellness management program. “Results can be skewed if the floor is uneven and if the scale is moved. However, the BOD POD never moves, it calibrates after each person, and is about 98 percent accurate.”
