Skinfold thickness measurement is a technique used to estimate body fat percentage by measuring the thickness of skinfolds at various locations on the body. This technique is commonly used in healthcare and fitness settings to assess body composition and track changes in body fat over time. While skinfold thickness measurement can be an effective way to track body fat and assess health risks associated with obesity, it is important to use this technique in conjunction with other measures, such as body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference. Working with a healthcare provider or fitness professional can help to ensure accurate and consistent skinfold thickness measurements.
