Background The phase angle (measured via bioelectrical impedance analysis [BIA]) is an indicator of cell membrane function and used for prognostic evaluation of diseases. Locomotive syndrome (LS) has been advocated in the evaluation of physical ability. This study aimed to determine the relationship between LS and the phase angle as well as muscle mass, muscular strength, and motor function. Methods In this prospective cohort study, 541 patients undergoing a health checkup participated. All participants were …
