Equations of Davidson et al for Estimating Percent Body Fat in an Adult Based on Skinfold Thickness Measurements


Davidson et al developed equations for predicting percent body fat based on race, skinfold thickness and other patient data (see previous section). The authors also listed equations for estimating body fat based on the sum of 4 skinfold thickness measurements. The authors are from St.Luke's Roosevelt Hospital and Columbia University in New York City.
