Event Title

Comparison of the InBody Bioelectrical Body Composition Analyzer and Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry in College-Aged Students

Major

Exercise Science

Faculty Mentor

Michael A. Martino, Kelly Massey, Emily Simonavice

Abstract

Body composition assessment is a common tool used in the determination of total body fat percentage and lean body mass in regards to overall health status. The purpose of this research study is to compare the InBody 570 Analyzer and Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) unit to obtain percent body fat values in college-aged students. Although both machines have their advantages and disadvantages, this research aims to compare the less invasive bioelectrical impedance procedure to the gold standard DEXA. Twenty healthy college-aged subjects of both genders will be recruited to participate in this study. The results of this study will be valuable to the general population by assessing the efficacy and validity of the InBody 570 Analyzer.
