PURPOSE OF REVIEW Bioelectrical impedance analysis is a popular, noninvasive and practical method for assessment of body composition. The last decade has seen the development of impedance analyzers designed to assess the composition of body segments as well as the whole body. This review outlines the theoretical basis for segmental impedance analysis, validity and use in practice. RECENT FINDINGS Segmental impedance analysis tends to underestimate fat-free mass and overestimate fat mass when… CONTINUE READING
