Body Composition Lab

This 450-square-foot facility contains the Bod Pod air displacement plethysmography system for body composition analysis. We also have other body composition assessment devices including a hydrostatic weighing tank (in room 152), an RJL Quantum II bioelectrical impedance analyzer (BIA), an Omron HBF-500 full body analyzer, several Omron HBF-306 hand-held BIA machines, several Lange skinfold calipers, a Harpenden skinfold caliper, anthropometers, anthropometic tape measures, and a wall mounted stadiometer. 

 

WHAT DOES THE BODY COMPOSITION LAB DO?

The Body Composition Lab provides opportunities to conduct body composition determination through the use of skin folds, bioelectrical impedance, hydrostatic weighing and body plethysmography.

GET INVOLVED WITH THE BODY COMPOSITION LAB

Dr. Dale Wagner coordinates research projects related to body composition. Please contact him at : dale.wagner@usu.edu if you are interested in getting involved in these research projects. Undergraduate majors in Human Movement Science also use the laboratory for developing body composition assessment skills.
