Body Fat Measurement- Body Fat Calipers


Lange Skinfold Caliper Description:

The Lange Skinfold Caliper provides accurate measurement of subcutaneous tissue. The pivoted tips adjust for parallel measurement of skinfolds. The easy-to-read scale on the Lange Skinfold Caliper, and spring-loaded levers provide a substantially constant standard pressure of 10 gm./ sq. mm. over the entire operating range. Each unit is supplied with an individual case.The fact that body components vary widely in their percentage relationship to total weight is the fundamental limitation to interpreting body weight. If the real problem is obesity rather than mere overweight, overweight and fatness must be dissociated to be understood properly.The most direct,simple, and accurate method for estimating leanness-fatness is measuring the thickness of skinfolds by constant-tension calipers.

The Lange Skinfold Calipers manufactured by Beta Technology Inc., are specifically designed for the simple, accurate measurement of subcutaneous tissue.The Lange Caliper incorporates the recommended principles for standardized usage in nutrition, fat distribution, child growth, anthropomorphic studies, and other applications.Pivoted tips adjust automatically for parallel measurement of skinfolds, and rectangular faces with well-rounded edges and corners assure patient comfort.

The face area is approximately 30 square mm. An easy-to-read scale permits reading up to 60 mm. Accurate to +/- 1 mm. Spring-loaded levers provide a substantially constant standard pressure of 10 gm./sq. mm. over the entire operating range. All critical pivot points utilize low friction bearings to maintain accurate tip pressure at all jaw openings. The caliper is of sturdy, light-weight construction, and is anti-corrosive. Each unit is supplied in an individual case.

Doctors, trainers, and health and nutrition experts recommend the periodic measurement of your children's body composition for improving their physical fitness. "Assessing your child's risk for developing diabetes and heart disease involves more than just weighing your child! Measuring body fat regularly with this simple tool allows parents and pediatricians to accurately combat the sedentary effects of too much "screen time" (tv, computer, video games) and not enough "green time" (soccer and other outdoor activities). Diet and exercise can be customized regularly and more prescriptively, based on your child's individual measurements." -- Larry Wolk, MD, Pediatrician and founder of Rocky MountainYouth, a non-profit medical group providing health care to children in need. The Accu-Measure FitKid Caliper is easy-to-use, totally private, clinically accurate, safe for your children, monitors children's body fat in seconds.

  • Product Questions and Answers

  • Ideas for a positive body fat experience with children

    Body fat testing is a great way to help you evaluate your child's health status. We know that fatter children have a stronger tendency to be obese as adults, and to have a greater risk of heart disease. These children could also have high blood pressure and high cholesterol, also leading to the development of cardiovascular disease. In addition, diabetes becomes a great risk to a child with too much body fat.

    We recommend that children be taught about the benefits of physical exercise and nutrition and how these can aid in the achievement and maintenance of healthy body fat %. Changes in body fat as well as shape, especially in girls, occur during puberty. This is normal and should be conveyed to your aging child.Children should first be made aware of the purpose and methods of the measuring body fat. You should maintain records over time of the body fat % results, but also track their growth, diet, and physical activity. Keep the results private between you and your child. Ensure that these measurements are as private as visiting the family doctor. Do not be negative, or label, criticize, or berate. Self-esteem and self-image is very important to your child. There should be no negative effects by performing these tests, as long as you take the time to educate your child. Your relationship and motivation is very important if your child needs to improve personal body fat results.Make the entire experience positive and your whole family will be motivated toward a healthier life!
