http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20671743 -Shows that the Bioimpedance analysis (BIA) of extracellular/intracellular cell mass is a significant indirect predictor of mortality in peritoneal dialysis patients.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14531774 - This study shows that Bioimpedance analysis (BIA) indexes reflect the nutritional status in peritoneal dialysis patients.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12028177 - Low relative skeletal muscle mass (sarcopenia) in older persons is associated with functional impairment and physical disability. Bioimpedance analysis measurements estimated the amount of skeletal muscle mass and helped in the observation and determination of increased morbidity and mortality in older patients.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14618476 -Bioimpedance analysis is a useful procedure for the study of nutritional status, water distribution and its measurement of fat-free mass in children.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17452840 - This study showed the use of bioimpedance analysis to evaluate lymphedema.
