Nota de escopo: Medida de la grasa subcutánea localizada directamente debajo de la piel al pellizcar un pliegue de piel y grasa subcutánea entre el pulgar y el índice separándolo del tejido muscular subyacente. El grosor de la doble capa de piel y tejido subcutáneo se mide con un calibrador. Los cinco sitios más frecuentemente medidos son el brazo, debajo de la escápula, encima del hueso de la cadera, el abdomen y el muslo. Se aplica para la determinación de la obesidad relativa, de los cambios en los programas de acondicionamiento físico y del porcentaje de grasa corporal para el peso corporal deseable.

Nota de escopo: The measurement of subcutaneous fat located directly beneath the skin by grasping a fold of skin and subcutaneous fat between the thumb and forefinger and pulling it away from the underlying muscle tissue. The thickness of the double layer of skin and subcutaneous tissue is then read with a caliper. The five most frequently measured sites are the upper arm, below the scapula, above the hip bone, the abdomen, and the thigh. Its application is the determination of relative fatness, of changes in physical conditioning programs, and of the percentage of body fat in desirable body weight. (From McArdle, et al., Exercise Physiology, 2d ed, p496-8)
