Table 3 Comparison of the two leg volume measurements at visit 1*

From: Reproducibility and day time bias correction of optoelectronic leg volumetry: a prospective cohort study

   volume difference between the 1st and 2nd measurement
   absolute [ml] relative [%]
legBD left leg + 5.2 ± 12.4 + 0.24 ± 0.52
  right leg + 9.5 ± 15.3 + 0.42 ± 0.63
  mean of both legs + 7.3 ± 14.1 + 0.33 ± 0.58
limbBF left leg + 29.2 ± 48.8 + 0.52 ± 0.80
  right leg + 31.0 ± 48.7 + 0.51 ± 0.79
  mean of both legs + 30.1 ± 48.5 + 0.52 ± 0.79
  1. * Leg volumetry was performed twice within 30 seconds in standing position after being sitting relaxed on a chair for a standardized time period of 15 minutes. legBD lower limb without the foot (from B-measure to D-measure), limbBF leg volume without the foot (from the B-measure to the F-measure).
