INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
1. Ask the person to remove clothing that may cover the left arm.
2. Calculate the midpoint of left upper arm by first locating the tip of the shoulder with your fingertips. Bend the elbow of the person to make the right angle. Place the tape at zero (indicated by two arrows) on the tip of the shoulder and pull the tape straight down past the tip of the elbow. Read the number at the tip of the elbow to the nearest centimetre. Divide this number by two to estimate the midpoint. As an alternative, bend the tape up to the middle length to estimate the midpoint. A piece of string can also be used for this purpose; it is more convenient and avoids damage to the tape. Mark the midpoint with a pen on the arm
3. Straighten the arm and wrap the tape around the arm at the midpoint. Make sure the numbers are right side up. Make sure the tape is flat around the skin.
4. Inspect the tension of the tape on the arm. Make sure the tape has the proper tension and is not too tight or too loose. Repeat any step as necessary.
5. When the tape is in the correct position on the arm with correct tension, read and call out the measurement to the nearest 0.1cm.
6. Immediately record the measurement
