  1. 1. THE MEASUREMENT OF BODY COMPOSITION INCHILDRENThrough a table of BMI, Lange Calipermachine of Bio-impedance, and dexa<br />Ernesto Sánchez Burgos<br />22.03.2011<br />
  3. 3. BODY COMPOSITION<br />Proportion of <br />fat<br />muscle + bones fat-free<br />in the body<br />
  4. 4. MEASUREMENT OF BODY COMPOSITION<br />BMI = weight (kg) / height2(m)<br />To know to could predict futures problems of health<br />(Lohman, 1986)<br />
  5. 5. MEASUREMENT OF BODY COMPOSITION<br />Observation of different aspects, like: <br /><ul><li>Figure
  6. 6. Posture body
  7. 7. Functionality of body
  8. 8. Balance between different part of body

  10. 10. MACHINE OF BIO-IMPEDANCE<br />This method is the “best” to measure the estimation of fat-free mass, fat mass and percentage body fat <br />(Tyrrellet et al, 2001)<br />

  13. 13. CONCLUSIONS<br />Knowledge of our pupils is essential to give every one that he/she necessity <br />Observation in our students is very important; their behaviors, their movements, their body posture… their non-verbal communication<br />No method is the best to apply in every schools <br />To spend time in our class to <br />measure the health of our pupils<br />is the best way to teach how <br />important this is <br />
