Caliper Test

There are 4 components to fitness: strength, flexibility, endurance and body composition.  The caliper test measures your body composition relative to how much fat you’re carrying under your skin.  The caliper test is considered a reliable, valid measurement for body fat percentage but the gold standard is hydrostatic weighing (i.e., underwater weighing).  If you are considering getting a caliper test done, make sure the person testing you has at done at least 100 tests because research shows that experience can dramatically affect results.

We strongly recommend that you do not attempt to perform any of our exercises without formal training from our physical therapists so as to avoid potential injury. The exercises shown have specific purpose and yield benefits when performed in conjunction with a complete therapy program that is customized to each patient. The only way this can be initiated is through an initial evaluation.
