PEA POD Cosmed

The PEA POD is an Air Displacement Plethysmography (ADP) system using whole body densitometry to determine body composition (fat and fat-free mass) in infants weighing between 1 and 8 kg. The PEA POD is extremely simple to operate, with software prompts guiding the operator through each step of the process. From start to finish, a PEA POD test takes about 7 minutes. The accuracy of the PEA POD has been shown to be very high against reference techniques in a number of research publications.
