Background/Objectives: (1) To cross-validate tetra- (4-BIA) and octopolar (8-BIA) bioelectrical impedance analysis vs dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) for the assessment of total and appendicular body composition and (2) to evaluate the accuracy of external 4-BIA algorithms for the prediction of total body composition, in a representative sample of Swiss children.Subjects/Methods: A representative sample of 333 Swiss children aged 6–13 years from the Kinder-Sportstudie (KISS… CONTINUE READING
