Body composition assessment with segmental multifrequency bioimpedance
My visit started with a basic heath check - followed by that bioimpedance
analysis by the mysterious machine, which measured the amount of water in my cells and my body fat.
Both intervention groups had significantly greater improvements than did the control group on secondary end points such as weight, reduction in waist and hip circumference, bioimpedance
, and insulin resistance.
Comparison of hand-to-hand bioimpedance
and anthropometry equations versus dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry for the assessment of body fat percentage in 17-18-year-old conscripts.
The purpose of the research was to study the impact of a body fat mass onto body composition, as muscle mass, water mass, and bone mass of a body, and also onto such physical parameters, as the basal metabolic ratio (BMR), metabolic age, bioimpedance
in patients with NAFLD in comparative study.
The 24- bed adult surgical-trauma step-down unit had each bed equipped with a patient monitor (M1 204, Philips Medical, Bothell, WA) displaying HR (3-lead electrocardiogram), RR (2-lead bioimpedance
), BP (intermittent noninvasive cuff with minimum frequency every 2 hours) and SpO2 (pulse oximeter).
The main aim of this study was to assess whether phase angle (a bioimpedance
variable related to cell mass) differs according to the type of underweight in female adolescents and young women.
The present report by Kuriyan and colleagues (4) in this issue is a report of similar validation of simple techniques and the generation of predictive equations using bioimpedance
measurements and anthropometric indicators to estimate total skeletal muscle mass in Indian subjects.
The technique uses bioimpedance
spectroscopy to diagnose cervical and skin cancers.
