Measurement Tips for the Accu-Measure Body Fat Caliper
Take all measurements on the right side of your body.
To grab the skinfold easily and correctly, make sure your skin is dry and lotion free.
Do not take measurements after physical activities or when you are overheated. The added fluid under the skin may increase skinfold thickness.
If you are female, avoid measuring during the menstrual cycle when there is no significant and/or noticeable weight gain.
Measurements should not be taken on broken, damaged or unhealthy skin.
If you are obese, it is not recommended that you take skinfold measurements. It is also useful to take tape measurements with a body tape measure such as the MyoTape.
Always use the same Accu-Measure caliper, and take the readings at the same time of day, for consistent monitoring of body composition changes
Experience is necessary to consistently grasp the correct size skinfold in the correct location. Practice until you get consistent results
