Body Composition Device Gives an Impetus to Infant Studies

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) have spent two years ascertaining the precision of a novel machine, used to measure// the body composition of infants.

The instrument called as the PEA POD Infant Body Composition System, the size of an infant was tested suitably under the supervision of Nutrition researcher, Ken Ellis, at CNRC. The device was developed by Life Measurement, Inc., of Concord, Calif.

Ellis and his team undertook a study of 56 healthy infants, comparing the readings recorded with the novel device with the reference model of infant body composition. The experiment showed that the new device was accurate, the values from the new machine lying within one percent of estimated values.

The PEA POD is certainly advantageous as the information is available within five minutes, as compared to the earlier method, which employed the use of four separate machines and took almost three to four hours to arrive at the results. This accuracy and time-saving characteristics of the device should inspire researchers to embark on further clinical studies on infants.
