The assessment of body composition in the elderly






Age and Nutrition 4(1): 34-39

The assessment of body composition in the elderly

Body composition was studied in 52 healthy men and 51 women 60 to 83 years old using densitometry, anthropometry and bioelectrical impedance. Age- and sex-specific prediction formulae for body composition from the literature, using anthropometric data or bioelectrical impedance, were compared with the densitometric estimated body composition as reference.
