Although use of the bioelectrical impedance method for the indirect assessment of human body composition is growing, awareness of the theoretical and practical bases of the method is limited. I discuss the relations between impedance variables and biological indexes, describe the biophysical models for the translation of impedance variables into in vivo body-composition indexes, and summarize the influences of physical and biological factors that affect the validity of the bioelectrical… CONTINUE READING
