OBJECTIVE Recent developments in electrical impedance myography (EIM) have led to the use of handheld electrode arrays (HEAs) for data acquisition. Although preferable for several reasons, this approach tends to be more affected by subcutaneous fat (SF) than the original approach in which the impedance-measuring electrodes are widely spaced. In this study, we seek to identify the EIM parameter least impacted by subcutaneous fat (SF) when using an HEA. METHODS 18 normal subjects underwent 50… CONTINUE READING
