Sturdy, lightweight, anti-corrosive aluminum construction, the Baseline Medical Skinfold Caliper (70 mm x 1 mm) is used to measure the thickness of subcutaneous tissue, or “skinfolds”. “Floating tips” at the ends assure accurate and reproducible results. Once recorded, these measurements can be translated to body fat content as a percentage of body weight. It should be noted that these percentage figures vary with age and gender. Lightweight and aluminum, the caliper has a large, easy-to-read scale that extends to 70 mm. The Baseline Medical Skinfold Caliper is easy to read and comes in a case.
The optional Baseline Caliper Calibration Block is used to ensure the accuracy of the measurements of measurements from 10mm – 50mm from the Baseline Medical Skinfold Caliper.
