From: Body fat measurement by bioelectrical impedance and air displacement plethysmography: a cross-validation study to design bioelectrical impedance equations in Mexican adults

  Males (n = 73) Females (n = 82)
  Body Fat (%) Fat Free Mass (kg) Body Fat (%) Fat Free Mass(kg)
ADP a 25.9 ± 6.9 57.9 ± 7.1 36.2 ± 6.5 41.4 ± 6.2
BIA b 25.8 ± 5.9 57.9 ± 6.5 36.1 ± 6.1 41.4 ± 5.9
