    Body fat testing

    Hey all:

    Just wanted to see if you thought the Futrex body fat test is accurate? I had it done at a gym last week and wanted to see if you thought it was more/less accurate than calipers.

    Thanks in advance!

    They hold this thing to your bicep and I think it uses infrared to test.

    Interesting... the site says, "The FUTREX-1100 is specifically designed for personal body fat testing in the home. It is not intended to be used by physicians or health/fitness professionals to assess clientele for percentage of body fat. "

    Thanks

    I think they have 3 models, 2 for professionals and one for the home. Don't know why they would be different though. He used the 5000 model on me.
