MODELS OF THE FUTREX BODY FAT AND FITNESS COMPUTER
There are three models available for estimating percent body fat in humans:
! FUTREX-5000/XL
Estimates the percent body fat of Adults only (ages 18-80)
! FUTREX-5000A/ZL
Estimates the percent body fat of:
1) Adults
2) Adolescent Children (13-17)
3) Pre-Adolescent Children (5-12)
When age is entered, the FUTREX-5000A/ZL automatically sets the unit to the proper calibration (e.g. if you entered the
subject's age as 14 during the Body Fat Measurement Sequence (page 6), the FUTREX-5000A/ZL will use its Adolescent
calibration to determine percent body fat).
! FUTREX-5000A/WL
Includes special high school wrestling calibrations as well as all features of the FUTREX-5000A/ZL.
CAUTION: This Manual is only for use with the FUTREX-5000A/WL

!
One Site Measurement - The measurement is on the midpoint biceps of the dominant arm (the arm
used for writing).
NOTE: If "1" is pressed, skip the following and go to Step 5.
!
Three Site Measurement - The measurement is made combining data from three body sites:
!
Biceps - The first measurements are at the midpoint of the biceps of the dominant arm; i.e.,
the arm used for writing. Measurement point on the front of the arm midway between the
armpit and the inside of the elbow.
!
Triceps - The second measurements are at the midpoint of the triceps of the dominant arm.
Measurement point on the back of the upper arm midway between the shoulder and elbow.
