For the Measurement of Subcutaneous Tissue The Lange Skin Caliper provides an easy and accurate way to measure subcutaneous tissue (fat). The most direct, simple and accurate method for estimating leanness/fatness is measuring the thickness of skinfolds by constant-tension calipers. The Lange Skin Caliper is specifically designed for this purpose. The pivoted tips adjust automatically for accurate measurement of skinfolds. These measurements are then compared with a chart to determine the subcutaneous fat levels. The skin caliper is of sturdy, lightweight construction, and is anti-corrosive. The rectangular faces on the tips, with well-rounded edges and corners, assure patient comfort. Each unit is supplied in an individual case.
