One of the major challenges in field research has been the difficulty to adequately measure body composition, such as% body fat and fat-free mass (FFM). Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to investigate the convergent validity of the portable bioelectrical impedance body composition analyzer, the Inbody 230, with dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA)(General Electric Lunar Prodigy). The study population consisted of 145 men and women (age, 44.6±20 years; BMI, 24.5±3.8 kg· m–2). We measured body composition (fat …
