The Accu-Measure is manufactured with durable Delrin plastic, a thermoplastic polymer from DuPont. Delrin enables our Personal Body Fat Testers to last through thousands of uses and for Accu-Measure to stand behind its accuracy, durability, and reliability with an unconditional lifetime guarantee. Other generic calipers are made from ABS plastic, which is flimsy and prone to snapping.
Accu-Measure's accuracy was proven in the landmark clinical study, "Validity of Self-Assessment Techniques for Estimating Percent Fat in Men and Women." From the study:
"Self-testing of % body fat with the Accu-Measure was as accurate
as results from multi-site measurements and calculations taken
by an experienced clinical investigator using a Lange caliper."
% body fat calculations with the Accu-Measure were within
1.1 percentage points of underwater weighing results, the gold
standard of body fat measurement."

The Accu-Measure is equipped with: (1) a “ball in socket” feature that produces a distinct feel and audible “click” that indicates when to stop pinching and (2) a measurement slide that stops at your measurement so you can release the caliper and comfortably read your result.
Generic body fat caliper
With a generic body fat caliper, to take your measurement
you must try to line up arrows, hold steady and bend over
to read your result all at the same time!
