Researchers measured fitness with a treadmill test and calculated body fatness with body-mass index (BMI) -- which takes height and weight into account -- and skinfold testing.
One of the most practical assessments of body fat is through skinfold measurements, which with proper technique can correlate well with more extensive measures (hydrostatic weighing or DEXA).
The same investigator performed the pre-and postmeasurements on the children using a Baseline skinfold caliper Model 12-1110 (Fabrication Enterprise, Inc.
Additional factors such as skinfold thickness (12) and sensor orientation (10) can also influence the amplitude and frequency contents of MMG signals.
The following measurements were performed on all pupils: anthropometric measurements (body weight and height, waist and hip circumference, waist-hip ratio, skinfold thickness etc.
Percent body fat can be measured using laboratory methods, which include hydrostatic weighing, near infrared reactance, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound assessment, computer tomography and dual energy x-ray absorptiometry or field methods such as skinfold thickness measurement, body girth measurement and bio-electrical impedance analysis (BIA).
In the same study, in the prediction of insulin resistance during the second trimester, measurement of visfatin in the first trimester was superior to various anthropometric measurements, including hip circumference and skinfold thickness, and serum levels of leptin, adiponectin, and inflammatory molecules, such as interleukin-6 and C-reactive protein (31).
