The accurate assessment of infant body fat and fat free mass provides important data to assist in addressing several infant situations, including optimizing individual nutritional and pharmacological requirements. SMP Tech, Inc. was responsible for the industrial design and packaging of the PEA POD system. The enclosure system is composed of a combination of sheet metal and pressure formed parts.
