  1. FFM, fat free mass; Regression coefficient estimate ± SE; FFMDXA, DXA measurement of FFM; FFMBIA, BIA prediction of FFM; h2/ZF-F, height 2/impedance; SEE, standard error of estimate; LOA, limits of agreement
  2. RMSE, Root mean square error= \( \sqrt{{\displaystyle \sum}\frac{{\left({\mathrm{y}}_{\mathrm{i}}^{\hbox{'}}-{\mathrm{y}}_{\mathrm{i}}\right)}^2}{\mathrm{n}}-\mathrm{p}-1} \), where y’ the predicted FFM, y is the observed; n is the number of subjects, and p is the number of predictor variables; PE, Pure errors= \( \sqrt{{\displaystyle \sum}\frac{{\left({\mathrm{y}}_{\mathrm{i}}^{\hbox{'}}-{\mathrm{y}}_{\mathrm{i}}\right)}^2}{\mathrm{n}}} \); r, correlation coefficient between FFMBIA and FFMDXA
