The BodPod is an advanced piece of equipment used to accurately and easily measure your body composition. This is explained as body fat percentage – the proportion of your body that is fat, compared with fat free mass.
The BodPod is an incredibly accurate and reliable method of body composition measurement due to its advanced technology - replacing the tape measure and callipers or water displacement tanks previously used in research.
The BodPod uses an air-displacement method to measure body volume and, from that, calculates body fat. It measures all the fat in the body (both inside and outside) which sets it apart from less direct techniques of body composition measurement.
Massey University has the only two BodPods in New Zealand, one located on the Manawatu campus (Palmerston North) and the other on the Auckland campus.
The BodPod is available to everyone and is commonly used for:
• Giving you an indication of how healthy your body is
• Athletes who would like to track the effects of training on their bodies over time
• Tracking changes in fat and non-fat mass over time if trying to alter your body composition
To get your body composition measured you can book a 30-minute appointment with one of our team.
First visit: $100
Subsequent visits: $80
Clinic rate (Albany only): $60
