Doctors, personal trainers, and nutritionists recommend the periodic measurement of body fat for maintaining proper health status. Enjoy the ability to measure body fat easily by yourself, in the privacy of your own home, with the reliability and accuracy that is expected of today's registered medical devices. Recommended in Body-for-LIFE and endorsed by the World Natural Bodybuilding Federation, Accu-Measure Personal Body Fat Testers have gold standard accuracy to within 1.1% of underwater weighing results! Each Accu-Measure Fitness 3000 model comes with an original Accu-Measure Personal Body Fat Tester, men's and women's Body Fat Measurement Charts with body fat measurement instructions, diet and exercise guidelines, fat loss tips, and fat facts.
- 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.
- Accu-Measure was recommended over another self-assessment device, the Futrex-1000, which significantly overestimated % body fat.
- "A salient feature of the Accu-Measure is that it is an inexpensive self-assessment technique that requires little skill to administer, therefore offering an attractive alternative for individuals who wish to determine their body composition without the inconvenience, expense, and lack of privacy of conventional body fat testing at clinics or recreational facilities." -- Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, December 1998
