Equations of the Naval Health Research Center for Estimating Percent Body Fat in Adults
Equations were used at the Naval Health Research Center to estimate the percent body fat in adults. These are very similar to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) equations (above) and appear to have preceded them. They are similar to the U.S. Navy equations (see above), except the measurements are in inches rather than centimeters.
