Body Composition Service BODPOD

Body Composition Service BODPOD


A body composition is now available to KCL staff and students on Wednesdays between 1300 and 1700.

Located in the Metabolic Research Unit, Corridor A, 4th floor FWB, the service uses a “BODPOD” to accurately measure and provide a print-out of the following:

Fat %.

Fat free mass %.

Fat mass in kilos/pounds.

Fat free mass in kilos/pounds.

Body mass in kilos/pounds.

Estimated daily resting metabolic rate in calories per day.

Total daily energy expenditure.  

The process is non-invasive and takes approximately half an hour. The user is required to change into their own close-fitting swimwear (headwear is supplied) and remain seated in the BODPOD whilst readings are taken using air displacement plethysmography.

Please note the service is not suitable for those with claustrophobia, epilepsy or diabetes.
