Single frequency bioelectrical impedance analysis is an inexpensive, quick and painless means of estimating body composition. However, current approaches to estimating body composition from segment resistivity have some drawbacks. The purpose of this study was to overcome these limitations by developing a better model of the relationship between resistivity and body composition. A three-compartment model of body mass and body segment resistivity is presented and calibrated to predict% Fat estimated by underwater …
