  • Abstract.A preliminary evaluation of a new air displacement plethysmography (ADP) system for body composition assessment in infants was performed on 17 subjects on 2 consecutive days. Mean (±SD) percent body fat (%BF) obtained from test 1 on day 1, and tests 1 and 2 on day 2 was 23.21±7.63, 22.94±7.50, and 22.55±7.61, respectively. Mean differences in %BF of within- (-0.39±0.81) and between-day tests (-0.27±0.97) did not significantly differ from zero. %BF 95% limits of agreements were very… CONTINUE READING
