The centerpiece of the clinic is the Bod Pod: a highly specialized piece of equipment used to measure body composition. With precise, whole-body capabilities, it provides clients with a much more detailed picture of body composition compared with, for example, the traditional scale. By reading data such as fat percentage, total fat mass, and lung volume, the Bod Pod provides detailed information about how activity and eating habits affect body composition.
The Nutrition Clinic at KU Medical Center is one of the few places offering access to the Bod Pod by the general public.
What is the Bod Pod and why is it used?

The Nutrition Clinic is located at the KU Medical Center and is managed by KU HealthPartners, Inc., a clinical enterprise operated by the University of Kansas School of Health Professions and School of Nursing.
