Healthy Volunteers Needed for an Assessment of Body Composition Research Study

Assessment of Body Composition using the
DEXA and Bod Pod‐A Validation Study


If you are between the ages of 18‐64 and in good health, you
may be eligible to participate.
The purpose of this study is to test the accuracy of the two
machines, DXA and the BodPod, in measuring body composition
(lean mass and fat mass) and bone density (DXA).
You will be asked to come to the Clinical Research Center for
one visit which will last approximately one hour.
You will receive a report of your body composition.
Compensation is available.
