In order to assess the agreement of body weight (BW), body fat index values between total body (foot to hand) and segment body (foot to foot) analyzers, we measured BW and body fat percentage (BF%) of 37 subjects by both analyzers in the same condition. As a result, the Pearson correlation of body weight and BF% values were r BW= 1.00 and r BF%= 0.81, respectively (p< 0.0001). The mean difference of BW and BF%(total minus segment) were d BW=− 0.281 kg and d BF%= 0.662% respectively; and the standard deviation of these …
