An Analysis of Selected Skinfold Measuring Instruments.
Hawkins, Jerald D.
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v54 n1 p25-27 Jan 1983
The performance of three relatively inexpensive skinfold calipers were compared with that of the Lange Skinfold Caliper. The instruments were used with 800 students ranging from elementary school to the college level. The Fat-O-Meter and Adipometer calipers compared favorably with the Lange instrument for accuracy and wearability while the Slim-Guide did not. (PP)
