The Lafayette Skinfold Caliper provides precise measurement at a great price. It is constructed in a lightweight ABS plastic and has two features that make it different from other skinfold calipers on the market.
One of the issues with most calipers is that they can only measure between 0-60mm, the Lafayette Caliper can measure between 0-100mm which gives an extra 40mm range providing you with greater flexibility when measuring individuals with more body fat.
Because the Lafayette Caliper has a spring-loaded arm and pivoting round comfort tips, it can adjust for parallel measurement of skinfolds. This makes taking measurements easier from any angle.
By applying a constant pressure during operation meets the load requirements of 10g/mm2 which means that the Lafayette Skinfold Caliper never needs to be calibrated.
