Our personal body fat caliper accurately measures your body fat based on your skinfold thickness. The Caliper package consisted of a easy-to-use caliper and a measurement chart. It’s a great tool for tracking your weight loss, fitness level, muscle gain, and diet progress. Nutritionists recommend periodic measurement of body fat for maintaining health status. Our body fat caliper is a fraction of the price of Harpenden, Slim Guide, and Lange calipers.
Pinch: While standing, with your fingers 2-3 inches apart, firmly grasp the skinfold in the area above your hips between the thumb and index finger of your left hand. Gently pull the skinfold away from your body. Pull the skin and underlying away from the muscle tissue.
Click: With the caliper tool in your right hand, place the jaws over your skinfold about 1/4” from your left thumb and index finger. The caliper should be halfway between the base and crest of the fold. It should be perpendicular to the fold. Now with your thumb press the caliper until the arrows on the caliper align with each other.
Read: Record your measurement to the nearest millimeter. Check the chart, based on your gender to determine your body fat percentage at the intersection of your age and millimeter reading.
