HOW TO USE THE METACAL® BODY FAT CALIPER
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.

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 – di!erent for men and
women – as described below.
3. Place the caliper in your right hand.
4. With your ngers about 2-3 inches apart, gently grasp the rst skinfold with the thumb and index
nger 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 nger, 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 nger - 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 !rst 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 nd where your age and the sum of the 3 readings meet – that
is your body fat%
