The Role of Body Composition Analysis Devices in Analyzing Childhood Obesity

1. Assessment of children's physical health by body composition analysis device


Body composition analysis devices detect children's health based on body composition analysis. Body composition refers to the content of various components in the human body (such as fat, muscle, bone, etc.), which reflects the nutrients accumulated by the human body in the process of life and the nutrients obtained from the external environment, thus constituting the quality, shape and function of the body.


Children and adolescents are in a critical period of physique shaping. Fat, muscle, and bone in body composition undergo significant changes during development. Changes in body composition are closely related to future health.


2. Assessment of children's physical development by body composition analysis device


The body composition analysis device makes a data survey on the physical health of children. In addition, the accelerating prevalence of overweight and obesity among Chinese children and adolescents has become a major public health problem. At present, scholars have used body composition to assess the degree of obesity and growth in children and adolescents, but most studies have ignored the close integration and mutual influence of fat muscle-skeletal in body composition.


From a medical statistical point of view, fat-muscle-bone is a structural whole, corresponding to relative amounts of body composition data (fat %, muscle %, and bone mineral %), with fixed and limited (i.e., all components of The sum is 1).


3. How does a body composition analysis device detect body composition?


The body composition analysis device analyzes and detects the distribution characteristics and influencing factors of body composition. There were varying degrees of age and gender differences in the percentages of fat-muscle-skeletal and fat and muscle mass in men and women.


The study further established 95% reference contour ranges for fat-muscle-skeletal percentages, and fat and muscle percentages in children and adolescents of different ages. To analyze the factors that affect the body composition of children and adolescents, in addition to age and gender, this study also found that birth weight, father's BMI, mother's BMI, aquatic products, eggs such as eggs/duck eggs, pure milk, and milk powder are related to the body composition of children and adolescents.


The results of this study can provide a reference for the assessment of growth and development of children and adolescents, and provide a scientific basis for formulating dietary guidelines for children and adolescents.


Many parents think that the child's flesh is very cute and will not affect the healthy development of the body. This view is not correct for the child's development. Excessive fat content will affect the healthy growth of children. Parents should conduct body type screening for children who are overweight in time.
