Equation of Janmahasatian et al for Estimating Fat-Free Mass (FFM) in an Adult Using Hip and Waist Measurements


Janmahasatian et al developed equations for estimating a patient's fat-free mass (FFM). The authors are from the University of Queensland (Brisbane), Queensland University of Technology and the University of California in San Francisco.   NOTE: The authors describe an equation for fat-free mass and use it as an estimate of lean body weight. Lean body weight is associated with a small percent of body fat, not a zero percent.
