The "Harpenden" Anthropometer is a counter recording instrument which can be effortlessly operated from the tips of its branches. Its user can, therefore, by means of his free finger-tips actually feel his way to his desired measuring points in order to obtain a degree of accuracy not possible with conventional anthropometers.
The Holtain-Kahn Abdominal Caliper
The Holtain-Kahn Abdominal Caliper has been developed to aid the prediction of cardiac risk by measuring sagittal-abdominal diameter in supine subjects.
- Gives a direct & accurate reading, to the nearest millimetre, over a range of 50mm to 570mm.
- Its sliding member operates via miniature ball-bearing rollers in order to ensure a movement which is free yet without cross-play. Safe and non-invasive measurement.
- Each instrument is supplied in a carrying case, complete with straight and recurved branches.
- This sagittal-abdominal diameter is highly correlated with the volume of visceral fat.
- This caliper makes a direct reading of the distance between the subject's back and the front of the subject's abdomen.
- The inbuilt spirit level (which ensures a vertical measurement is taken) has helped to give estimates of intra observer precision which produced a mean of absolute deviation of 0.4cm, coefficient of variation of 2.5% and an intraclass correlation coefficient of 95.8.
