Date:

2019

Authors:

Bernabeu-Wittel M., González-Molina Á., Fernández-Ojeda R., Díez-Manglano J., Salgado F., Soto-Martín M., Gómez-Salgado J.

Journal:

Journal of clinical medicine

Topic:

The evaluation of Skeletal Muscle Mass through bioimpedance analysis in polypathological patients allows early detection and management of sarcopenia and frailty, reducing the rate of mortality and functional decline.

Predicting appendicular lean and fat mass with bioelectrical impedance analysis in older adults with physical function decline – The PROVIDE study.

Date:

2017

Authors:

Scafoglieri A., Clarys J. P., Bauer J. M., Verlaan S., Van Malderen L., Vantieghem S.

Journal:

Clinical Nutrition

Topic:

The multicentric study conducted on 380 elderly patients with functional decline validates a new set of equations for estimating appendicular lean mass (ALM) [R2 = 0.90 and SEE = 1.28 kg] and appendicular fat mass (AFM) [R2 = 0.73 and SEE = 1.54 kg]. The prediction model proposed shows a high concordance with the benchmark method DEXA (r = 0.82, P < 0.0001).

Validation of bioelectrical impedance analysis for estimating limb lean mass in free-living Caucasian elderly people.

Date:

2017

Authors:

De Rui M., Veronese N., Bolzetta F., Berton L., Carraro S., Bano G., Manzato E.

Journal:

Clinical Nutrition

Topic:

The study conducted on over 200 Caucasian patients over the age of 60 proposes new equations for estimating limb lean mass in the elderly which can be used to monitor muscular deterioration in the limbs and to assess the efficacy of nutritional and rehabilitation programmes.
