Precision of measurement and body size in whole-body air-displacement plethysmography

OBJECTIVE: To investigate methodological and biological precision for air-displacement plethysmography (ADP) across a wide range of body size.DESIGN: Repeated measurements of body volume (BV) and body weight (WT), and derived estimates of density (BD) and indices of fat mass (FM) and fat-free mass (FFM).SUBJECTS: Sixteen men, aged 22–48 y; 12 women, aged 24… CONTINUE READING
