Bod Pod featured in local media

The high-tech Bod Pod from the School of Kinesiology's Laboratory of Physiological Hygiene and Exercise Science was featured recently in several local media outlets.The Bod Pod is an egg-shaped device that measures an individual's body composition as they sit in the machine. It provides more accurate and complete measurements than the traditional methods of calipers or water immersion. Links to local media coverage include

"The incredible Egg" - Star Tribune

"Bod Pod Changing Fitness at U of M" - Fox 9

"New machine offers a faster, more accurate way to measure a body, track a fitness routine" - KARE 11
