UNLABELLED This study evaluated the agreement of novel anthropometric equations and established indirect methods (skinfold thickness and bioimpedance analysis) with reference methods [dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and air displacement plethysmography (ADP)] for fat mass assessment (FM) in older subjects. METHODS Forty subjects (M/F = 15/25, age = 61-84 years, BMI = 18-37 kg/m(2)) were recruited. The agreement of the following predictive equations was evaluated: body adiposity index (BAI… CONTINUE READING
