Correlation study between body anthropometric measurements with body fat in adult


Author(s): Dr. Namrata Parekh

Abstract: Introduction: The purpose of this study is to assess the validity of Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) to characterize the body fat percentage and its correlation with anthropometric indices.
Materials and Methods: The following indices were carried out: weight, height, body mass index (BMI), waist-hip ratio (WHR) taken random samples of 100 subject. The body fat percentages were assessed by bioelectrical impedance analysis.
Results: Positive Correlation between body anthropometric indices with body fat.
Conclusion: That study concluded that body fat was strong positive correlated with BMI and fair positive correlated with WHR means body fat increased that leads to waist hip ratio and body mass index.
