Background/Objectives:(1) To cross-validate tetra-(4-BIA) and octopolar (8-BIA) bioelectrical impedance analysis vs dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) for the assessment of total and appendicular body composition and (2) to evaluate the accuracy of external 4-BIA algorithms for the prediction of total body composition, in a representative sample of Swiss children. Subjects/Methods: A representative sample of 333 Swiss children aged 6–13 years from the Kinder-Sportstudie (KISS)(ISRCTN15360785). Whole-body fat-free mass (FFM) and …
