COSMED introduces BOD POD GS-X, the 4th generation of the world’s first and only Air Displacement Plethysmograph (ADP), the Gold Standard for two compartment Body Composition model.
COSMED, world-wide leader manufacturer of Cardiopulmonary, Metabolic and Body Composition diagnostic equipment for clinical and human performance applications, announced today the release of BOD POD GS-X, a new generation of Body Composition Tracking System for a quick, safe and non-invasive Body Composition assessment in adults and children.
BOD POD technology is based on the same operating principles as a hydrostatic (underwater) weighing, measuring body mass and body volume by whole-body densitometry within a two-compartment model to determine body composition. The equipment provides an excellent inter-intra device reliability and is entirely suitable for measuring body composition in a very diverse population range including elderly persons, people with disabilities, obese subjects weighing up to 250 kg, and children (2-6 years old with the Pediatric Option).
The efficacy of BOD POD has been confirmed by more than 2.000 peer reviewed research studies describing a wide range of subjects in both clinical and non-clinical environments. The latest generation of this unique device delivers new hardware and software design to optimize the experience for both test subjects and operators alike.
BOD POD GS-X is powered by OMNIA, COSMED’s multi-device laboratory software platform. OMNIA improves BOD POD performance with an user-friendly interface for quick access to features and commands; an exclusive Body Composition reference database for normal subjects, pregnant women and athletes; diverse population density models; test results integration from all COSMED devices, and the ability to share data over a network.
