  • adults
  • A preliminary investigation in our laboratory has demonstrated the advantage of using 4-compartment modeling to assess body composition in SCI adults. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Objectives: The primary objective is to characterize body composition among adults with chronic SCI using valid, reliable, and interpretable measures, and to suggest screening procedures for the detection of obesity and SLOP in this population. (uwaterloo.ca)
  • 1-4 In addition, some cross-sectional studies in children and adults have shown that blacks have a lower resting energy expenditure (REE) than do whites, even after adjusting for body composition. (aappublications.org)
  • They have been studying the process in which the sympathetic nervous system communicates with the vascular system during total body heating and cooling, particularly in aging adults. (acsm.org)
  • overweight
  • Body mass index (BMI) - your weight in kilograms divided by your height in meters squared - is also used as an accepted assessment of underweight, normal, overweight, and obese status, with the exception that the formula can be skewed by an athletic population, who typically carry more muscle mass than a non-athlete.

  • adiposity
  • The influence of the initial measures of energy expenditure and fitness on the subsequent rate of increase in adiposity was examined, adjusting for initial body composition, age, ethnicity, gender, and Tanner stage. (aappublications.org)
  • Metabolomics, the assessment of large numbers of small-molecule metabolites, affords the opportunity to gain a broader understanding of the activity of metabolic pathways affected by excess adiposity ( 3 ). (frontiersin.org)
  • precise
  • These data demonstrate for the first time that increases in body heat and moisture result in an underestimation of body fat when using the BOD POD, however, the precise mechanism remains unidentified. (biomedcentral.com)
  • estimate
  • Another method is bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), which uses the resistance of electrical flow through the body to estimate body fat. (wikipedia.org)
  • methodology
  • To date, there is no universally applicable criterion or 'gold standard' methodology for body composition assessment. (springer.com)
  • This publication provides information on the theoretical background as well as on the practical application of state of the art methodology to monitor changes in body composition, based on the analysis of deuterium in saliva by Fourier transform infrared spectrometry. (iaea.org)
  • markers
  • This study determined the effects of 28 days of heavy resistance exercise combined with the nutritional supplement, NO-Shotgun ® , on body composition, muscle strength and mass, markers of satellite cell activation, and clinical safety markers. (biomedcentral.com)
  • 61.5
  • 61.5% of the Lancaster High School student body was considered Economically Disadvantaged with 60.0% classified as "At-Risk. (wikipedia.org)
  • total body
  • Total body fat content in a group of professional football players. (springer.com)
  • LST is the measure of organs, muscles, connective and supportive tissues and Total Body Water. (rjlsystems.com)
  • Total body mass was increased in both groups (p = 0.001), but without any significant increases in total body water (p = 0.77). (biomedcentral.com)
  • The minimum recommended total body fat percentage exceeds the essential fat percentage value reported above. (wikipedia.org)
