Intended to be used by medical practitioners in healthcare settings, the Small Bone Caliper (30cm) is an anthropometric sliding tool that can be used to measure bones, joints and small sections of muscles in the body, such as the wrists, elbows, knees, ankles and biceps. With a sliding C-shaped arm and a 0 - 30cm scale in increments of 0.1 cm, it can be used to accurately measure a straight line distance between two points on the body.

What Can the Small Bone Caliper Measure?

This type of instrument is typically used by healthcare professionals to measure specific parts of a patient's body. This caliper in particular is ideal for measuring small joints and bones including wrists, elbows and knees, and the width of ankles, however it can also be used to measure small muscle masses like the biceps or calves.

How Accurate Is the Small Bone Caliper?

The Small Bone Calipers has a sliding design which allows healthcare professionals to easily measure a straight line distance between two points on a patient's body. With C-shaped arms and a scale range of 0 to 30cm increasing in 0.1 cm increments, it is easy to use and produces highly accurate and precise results.

How Do I Use the Small Bone Caliper?

To take a patient's measurements with the Small Bone Caliper, follow the instructions below:

  1. Take measurements from the right side of the body with all clothing pulled back from the area.
  2. Before measuring, clearly identify the scope of the measurement area.
  3. Grip the ends of the caliper's C-shaped branch with the caliper arms resting on the healthcare professional's forearms.
  4. Move the arms of the branches to the desired length, then read the scale on the base of the caliper (to the nearest cm).

Cleaning Instructions

To ensure the caliper is kept clean and hygienic and prevent cross contamination between patients, it can be washed with soap and water then wiped dry with a gentle cloth, however it should never be dunked in water or exposed to a harsh cleaning product like bleach. For quicker cleans between thorough washes, it can also be disinfected with isopropyl alcohol wipes.
