Objective We compared body composition estimates using an eight-electrode, segmental, multiple-frequency bioelectrical impedance analysis (segmental MF-BIA) and dual x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) in a group of healthy adults with a range of body mass indexes (BMIs). Methods Percentage of body fat (% BF), fat-free mass, and fat mass assessed by DXA and segmental MF-BIA in 132 healthy adults were classified by normal (N; 18.5–24.9 kg/m 2), overweight (OW; 25–29.9 kg/m 2), and obese (OB; 30–39.9 kg/m 2) BMI.
