OBJECTIVE: Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) of hydration and body composition has made significant progress during the past 3 decades. With the development of Bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS), bioimpedance has been expanded to reliably predict extracellular fluid (ECF) and total body water (TBW), allowing the calculation of fat-free mass (FFM) and fat mass (FM). In this study, a new BIS device (ImpediVet™), designed for body composition measurements in animals, was assessed for precision… CONTINUE READING
