Abstract

Background & aims: Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) could be facilitated in subjects who are able to stand by using scales without (BIAstd4) or with a retractable handle (BIAstd8), provided that they are as precise as BIA devices commonly used in the supine position in the hospital setting (BIAstd4). This observational prospective cross-sectional study aimed to compare the precision and accuracy of BIAstd4, BIAstd8 and BIAsup in a Caucasian population.
