Abstract Background: Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is a widely available tool which provides mineral estimate. However, BIA is not currently recognized as a bone mineral measuring method. This study aimed to explore the ability of BIA to predict bone mineral content (BMC) in children, using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry as a gold standard. Methods: Healthy children aged 6–12years (n = 176) were recruited for BIA and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry measurements. Predictive models wer...

Background Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is a convenient and child-friendly method for longitudinal analysis of changes in body composition. However, most validation studies of BIA have been performed on adult Caucasians. The present cross-sectional study investigated the validity of two portable BIA devices, the Inbody 230 (BIA8MF) and the Tanita BC-418 (BIA8SF), in healthy Taiwanese children. Methods Children aged 7–12 years (72 boys and 78 girls) were recruited. Body composition was ...
