Harpenden Skinfold Caliper

D. J. M. Tanner pioneered the use of skinfold thickness to measure body fat. He collaborated with Harpenden in 1958, and together designed The Harpenden Skinfold Caliper.

Since that day over 40 years ago, the Harpenden Body Fat Caliper has set the industry standard. It is accurate up to 99%, so you will provide your subjects with the most accurate body fat reading possible.

Scientists worldwide use Harpenden Calipers for diagnostics and research in many fields. These include sports performance, nutrition/malnutrition, obesity, eating disorder assessment and juvenile growth disorders.
