The Marilyn Magaram Center at California State University, Northridge is offering a modern health assessment tool for the campus and community to utilize.
The Bod Pod Gold Standard is the newest tool in body fat composition assessment technology. The Health Assess Program (HAP) uses the Bod Pod to give athletes and the general public more accurate readings.
Using the equation [Density = Mass / Volume] and air displacement technology, the Bod Pod gives highly accurate body fat percentage readings. To use the machine, a person should wear tight-fitting clothing, such as a swimsuit, and sit in the Bod Pod while breathing deeply into a tube that is provided. Results take no more than five minutes to calculate.
The HAP completed over 300 Bod Pod assessments for individuals in the community.
The Magaram Center is funded through community donations and grants.
