How does Lean Meater work?

The Lean-Meater can be thought of as an electronic ruler. Ultrasonic pulses sent into the animal are reflected back to the instrument from tissues of interest. The times until these echoes are received are translated into distances in mm. Measurements are non-invasive—no piercing of the skin with the consequent danger of infection. The animals are neither hurt nor irritated.

Helpful Tips:

Simply wet the test site (usually by the last rib) with a coupling fluid, such as cooking oil, press the button to turn the instrument on and apply to the test site. Move it around to remove air bubbles. The display locks in when the total depth and number of layers has been determined. Note the reading on the display, which from left to right, shows the number of fat layers detected and the digital reading of total thickness of skin and fat layers. The figures below illustrate various displays.
