It is 50 years since Thomasett demonstrated the application of the measurement of the impedance of the human body to the estimation of total body water. The use of the bioelectrical impedance technique for the analysis of body composition, however, largely languished for a further 20 years until Nyoboer used impedance techniques to estimate the fat and fat-free mass (FFM) of the human body. A few years later saw the publication of the seminal paper by Lukaski et al., in which the method was… CONTINUE READING
