Accu-Measure Fitness 3000 Fat Caliper
Enjoy the ability to measure body fat easily, by yourself, in the privacy of your own home, with the reliability and accuracy that you expect from world class training tools. Recommended in Body-for-LIFE and endorsed by the World Natural Bodybuilding Federation, Accu-Measure® Personal Body Fat Testers have gold standard accuracy to within 1.1% of underwater weighing results!
Each Accu-Measure® Fitness 3000 model comes with:
- An original Accu-Measure Personal Body Fat Tester
- Body Fat Measurement Instructions
- Men's and Women's Body Fat Measurement Charts and Body Fat Tips.
Key findings of a clinical study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research by the National Strength & Conditioning Association include the following:
- Self-testing of % body fat with the Accu-Measure was as accurate as results from multi-site measurements and calculations taken by an experienced clinical investigator using a Lange caliper.
- % body fat calculations with the Accu-Measure were within 1.1 percentage points of underwater weighing results, the gold standard of body fat measurement.
- Accu-Measure was recommended over another self-assessment device, the Futrex-1000, which significantly overestimated % body fat.
"A salient feature of the Accu-Measure is that it is an inexpensive self-assessment technique that requires little skill to administer, therefore offering an attractive alternative for individuals who wish to determine their body composition without the inconvenience, expense, and lack of privacy of conventional body fat testing at clinics or recreational facilities.
