Body Composition & Pulmonary Function Testing
Body Composition Testing
Are you looking for state-of-the art technology to provide accurate body composition data for yourself, patients or clients? If so, look no further! The South Carolina Clinical and Translational research (SCTR) Institute’s Research Nexus houses a BOD POD, which is the world’s only Air Displacement Plethysmography system, offering Fat and Fat-Free body composition data. It is completely non-invasive and designed for assessment of a wide variety of populations (varying in age and size). For $85 a session, an individual can get a body composition reading accompanied by a nutrition consultation for assessment and interpretation of results. Appointments must be scheduled in advance and must be paid for with cash or check (no credit cards, please).
Pulmonary Function Testing
The Pulmonary Function Testing suite contains the Carefusion Vmax 22/62 Pulmonary Function Testing Station with Plethysmograph. The equipment can be used to measure static and dynamic lung volumes; cooperation-dependent pulmonary function tests which include Spirometry/Flow-Volume/Resistance measurements and lung diffusion measurements and bodyplethysmography measurement.
