Accuracy of a Bod Pod Test
What to wear for my Bod Pod Test
Because we want you to receive the most accurate test, we ask at that you arrive wearing the appropriate attire for the test underneath your clothing so it can be carried out with ease.
Each pod test session takes approximately 25 minutes and in this time you will be required to undress to your testing outfit. You will then be asked to sit in the pod for 3 x 40 second tests. So all you need to do is sit comfortably but un-moving and to breath as normal. After the 3 tests you can exit the bod pod re-dress and our member of staff will collect your data ready to explain your results.
The Pod Test room is a quite, separate room for Bod Positive customer use only. You can remove your outer clothing behind private a screened curtain.
To ensure an accurate pod test, we recommend that you wear the following garments:
Men – we recommend Fitted lycra swim shorts. Please remove all glasses and jewellery
Women – Fitted lycra swim costume. Please remove all glasses and jewellery
Additionally we will provide you with a swim cap.
Why do we need the tight fitting clothing?
Wearing the suggested lycra fitted clothing will eliminate any air pockets and the cap will also because we use air displacement for the test.
On arrival a member of our team will be there ready to greet you for your pod test. Our Bod Positive Testing room has easy access with private changing facilities.
