      Key Benefits
      • Easy and accurate body fat measurements in minutes
      • Ideal for personal trainers and Fitness instructors
      • Very light easy to transport
    • Suggested Use

      For accurate and repeatable tests, follow the below guidelines for taking skinfold measurements. Following a standard method of assessment helps ensure accuracy and repeatability on future testing.

      • Instruct the test subject to keep the muscles relaxed during the test.
      • Mark the skinfold site using a pen with water soluble ink. Use a tape measure to accurately find the mid-points.
      • The skinfold should be firmly grasped by the thumb and index finger, using the pads at the tip of the thumb and finger. Gently pull the skinfold away from the body.
      • The Caliper should be placed perpendicular to the fold, on the site marked, dial up, at approximately 1 cm below the finger and thumb. While maintaining the grasp of the skinfold, allow the Caliper to be released so that full tension is placed on the skinfold.
      • A minimum of two measurements should be taken at each site. If repeated tests vary by more than 1 mm, repeat the measurement. If consecutive measurements become increasingly smaller, the fat is being compressed. Go to another site and come back a little later and recheck the problem site.
      • The final value recorded should be the average of the two that seems best to represent the skinfold fat site.

    Calipers

    Very economic way to track bodyfat levels. Calipers aren't the most accurate but they're definately one of the most economic and most accessible ones. For only a few quid you get a decent set. I think my only criticism would be that they do tend to 'wear' after a few months of weekly use. But they're made out of plastic and cost a few quid, so you're still getting what you pay for. Ideally I'd like MP to supply a more robust metal option, obviously at an increased price. That being said, if you're currently not tracking your BF along with your weight, you really need to. And here is where to start. Get some.

    Skinfold calliper

    Really simple piece of kit that does exactly what you want it to. Very clear and simple instructions and analysis chart. Very good price. Great buy.

    Good

    Easy to use and the price was very economic.

    Nice

    Does it's job for the money

    Good product

    Cheap but works - perhaps not the most accurate bit of equipment, but still good value for money

    Skin caliper

    Good but not as a accurate as could be

    Not very good

    The slider moves as soon as the compression is release, so we can't see ne number.

    All my fitness equipment

    Great for keeping track of fat loss

    These are great calipers and would much prefer to measure progress with body fat reduction with these than standing on a set of scales as I don't see how they can tell u anything other than ur weight accurately.
