There is limited information on the accuracy of bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) for estimating body composition in children. The purpose of this study was to evaluate BIA measurements for estimating fat mass and fat-free mass in 94 Chinese boys and girls aged 11-17 years. Percent fat (%fatskf) and fat-free mass (FFMskf) were predicted by regression of skinfolds in an equation which is founded on a multicomponent model of body composition in children. Multiple-regression analyses were… CONTINUE READING
