Normative data for handgrip strength in children and adolescents in the Maule Region, Chile: Evaluation based on chronological and biological age
Background: Hand grip strength (HGS) is associated with a number of causes resulting in cardiovascular death, in addition to bone fragility, and the presence of sarcopenia. The goal of our study was to analyze HGS of ...
Reference norms for evaluating maximum expiratory flow of children and adolescents of the Maule Region in Chile
Background: The norms for evaluating the maximum expiratory flow (MEF) usually are developed according to chronological age and height. However, to date, little research has been conducted using reference values that take ...
Proposed equations and reference values for calculating bone health in children and adolescent based on age and sex
Background: The Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DXA) is the gold standard for measuring BMD and bone mineral content (BMC). In general, DXA is ideal for pediatric use. However, the development of specific standards for ...
Equations to predict body fat percentage in young Chilean soccer players
The purpose of this study was to develop equations to predict body fat percentage in young Chilean soccer players. Ninetyfour footballers 13.0 to 17.9 yrs of age were studied. The anthropometric variables that were recorded ...
Physical growth and body adiposity curves in students of the Maule Region (Chile)
Objectives: Physical growth and body adiposity patterns provide relevant information to infer the nutritional and health status of students. Our objectives were (a) to compare the variables of body adiposity and physical ...
Muscle mass in children and adolescents: Proposed equations and reference values for assessment
Objectives: The goal of this study was to develop regression equations to estimate LM with anthropometric variables and to propose percentiles for evaluating by age and sex. Methods: A cross sectional study was conducted ...
