Holtain-Kahn Abdominal Caliper

From £162.00 Ex VAT £162.00


The Holtain-Kahn Abdominal Caliper has been developed to aid the prediction of cardiac risk by measuring sagittal abdominal diameter in supine subjects.

The Holtain-Kahn caliper works by taking a direct reading of the distance between the subject’s back and the front of the subject’s abdomen.

The sagittal abdominal diameter has been shown to be highly correlated with the volume of visceral fat.

SKU: H986-C


The inbuilt spirit level (which ensures a vertical measurement is taken) has helped to give estimates of intraobserver precision which produced a mean of absolute deviation of 0.4cm, the coefficient of variation of 2.5% and an intraclass correlation coefficient of 95.8.
