OBJECTIVE: Our purpose was to evaluate accuracy of multifrequency bioelectrical impedance analysis (MFBIA) using air displacement plethysmography (ADP) as the criterion measure.

SUBJECTS/METHODS: Body composition of 27 women was assessed by ADP followed immediately by MFBIA.

RESULTS: There was a strong relationship (p = .01) between ADP and MFBIA in absolute lean mass (r = 0.80), absolute fat mass (r = 0.99), percent lean (r = 0.91), and percent fat mass (r = 0.91).

CONCLUSION: Although MFBIA consistently overestimated lean mass and underestimated fat mass compared with ADP, agreement between measurements was within 2%-3% body fat. An accurate assessment tool, MFBIA can be useful in clinical settings.
