For individuals interested in improving their health through increased exercise and improved nutrition, the Nutrition Clinic at the University of Kansas Medical Center offers the latest technology for measuring body composition. Using a device known as the Bod Pod — the only one available to the public in Kansas City — clinicians in the KU department of Dietetics and Nutrition are able to give precise insight into body mass readings such as: fat percentage, total fat mass, fat-free mass (muscle) and lung volume. Bod Pod testing is quick and easy, providing detailed information about how activity and eating habits affect body composition.
