OBJECTIVES The first objective was to compare the accuracy of a foot-to-foot impedance meter with a multifrequency bioimpedance for measurements of fat-free mass (FFM) and fat mass (FM) using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) as reference. The second objective was to validate measurements of extracellular water resistance and volume by the foot-to-foot impedance meter, using multifrequency bioimpedance as reference. METHODS This investigation was carried out in 60 volunteers 18 to 71 y… CONTINUE READING
