The aim of this study is to compare two commercial bioimpedance analysers, BioparHom Z-Métrix and Impedimed SFB7, measuring the impedance of three different body segments. The segments measured were 'right-side' (or 'whole-body'), 'segmental right-lower limb' and 'localized longitudinal right-quadriceps'. The comparison was made on electrical models of each segment, including electrode–skin impedance, and in vivo on nine healthy volunteers. Both devices are designed to measure right-side impedances and, in the present study, as the length of the segment investigated decreased, the accuracy of the impedance measured was found to decrease. The accuracy of the devices was calculated via measurements performed on RC networks of known values. It was found that adding electrode–skin contact impedances in the electrical model affected the accuracy by both devices.
