Body fat meter measurement method is different, the difference is obvious

At present, the more accurate body fat measurement method recognized worldwide is the “DEXA” (Dual X-ray Absorption Measurement Method) method. Different from the “BIA” measurement method, this method divides the body into a three-interval model to measure the content of body adipose tissue, non-fat tissue and bone.

A study conducted by the Shanghai Institute of Physical Education showed that male testers between the ages of 20 to 29 and 50 to 59 years old use the “DEXA” method to measure body fat, which is better than a certain brand of body fat meter (BIA measurement). Method) The value is small; male testers between the ages of 30 and 49, the value measured by the “DEXA method” is larger than the value of a certain brand of body fat meter (BIA measurement method). For female testers aged 20 to 59, measured by the “DEXA” method, the value is greater than that of a certain brand of body fat meter (BIA measurement method).

It is not difficult to see that for testers of different ages and different genders, there is a big difference between the results measured by the “BIA” body fat meter and the results measured by the DEXA method.
