MetaCal Body Fat Caliper by Sequoia Fitness
Sequoia Fitness MetalCal BodyFat Calipers are The Quickest and Cheapest way to measure Body Fat %.

MetaCal BodyFat Calipers are the low cost accurate alternative. You will not find a less expensive caliper! This body fat tester, in an earlier generation, was one of the first body fat calipers tested and approved by American Hospital Supply. Now, as times change, Sequoia Fitness is helping you change your body. MetaCal meets the Military Standard for Physical Readiness - can you?

MetaCal BodyFat Calipers come packed with a user manual including unique instructions to measure body fat % as well as measurement charts for males and measurement charts for females, ages 18-65. We used the 3-site Jackson Pollack body density equations for active adults to generate the results. A body fat % interpretation chart is available on line so you can see how you do relative to others.

HOW TO USE THE METACAL® BODY FAT CALIPER TO MEASURE BODY FAT

We hope that you enjoy your MetaCal® body fat caliper. MetaCal® calipers are designed for individuals and trainers alike. Its simplicity allows you to take a simple 3-site test to help determine body fat. You may use the enclosed chart to get your body fat % or use the TONUS® Body Mass Calculator from Sequoia Fitness Products USA for more detailed results. Note: If you are obese and have difficulty grabbing a skinfold, it is recommended to use the Navy tape measure method available on www.sequoiaftness.com/navy.html.

If you are familiar with body fat testing, there are only 4 simple steps:
  • 1) Pinch your skinfold on the right side of your body with your left hand.
  • 2) Use the caliper with your right hand, with your thumb on the PRESS button.
  • 3) Align the arrows on the caliper arms and read the mm marking on the caliper.
  • 4) Measure 3 sites and check the chart where age and mm (sum of 3 tests) meet.


STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS
  • 1. First, get familiar with the MetaCal:
    • a. Hold it in your right hand
    • b. Place your thumb on the left side of the MetaCal®, next to PRESS
    • c. Squeeze the arms together until the tips touch one another
    • d. Align the two arrows together – the unit will read 0 mm.
  • 2. Note that all skinfold measurements are taken on the right side of the body, and standing upright and relaxed. You will be taking a skinfold measurement at each of 3 sites – different for men and women – as described below.
  • 3. Place the caliper in your right hand. 4. With your fingers about 2-3 inches apart, gently grasp the first skinfold with the thumb and index finger of your left hand. Then pull the skinfold away from your body.
  • 5. With your right hand, place caliper tips over the skinfold 1 cm (about 1/2 inch) away from thumb and finger, perpendicular to the skinfold. The caliper heads should be halfway between crest (outermost part) and base of fold (closest to the body).
  • 6. Gently begin to apply caliper pressure. Keep the fold elevated, and maintain the pinch with your thumb and index finger - align the arrows on the caliper arms and let the caliper reading stabilize for a second or 2.
  • 7. Read and record the measurement to the nearest mm, if possible.
  • 8. Repeat the procedure for the remaining 2 skinfold sites. Note: it is good practice to repeat the procedure for each site. If the second reading is more than 1-2 mm apart from your first reading, take a third measurement. Record the average score of the closest 2 values.
  • 9. Add all 3 measurements together (one from each site). 10. Look at the measurement chart and and where your age and the sum of the 3 readings meet – that is your body fat %.
