OBJECTIVE: To determine the accuracy of foot-to-foot bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) and anthropometric indices as measures of body composition in children.DESIGN: Comparison of foot-to-foot BIA and anthropometry to dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA)-derived body composition in a multi-ethnic group of children.SUBJECTS: Eighty-two European, NZ Maori and Pacific Island children aged 4.9–10.9 y.MEASUREMENTS: DEXA body composition, foot-to-foot bioelectrical impedance, height, weight… CONTINUE READING
