No More Calipers get a Skulpt Aim

Intelligent Muscle Measurement with the Skulpt AIM

Fat measurement with body fat calipers
Never use calipers again! (thank goodness!)

You've spent hours, days, months and years working on your health and fitness. While pursuing a healthy, active lifestyle, you lift heavy, move regularly, strain and push your body to its limits and at the end of the day, you're left wondering “is all my hard work paying off?”

Until recently, your best bet would be eyeballing your body in a mirror, or, if you have the patience and wherewithal to use body fat calipers, you can measure your body's external measurements. For the most part, these methods leave much too much margin for error.

What if you could know more about your muscles? Take a snapshot of them from the outside-in? And what if, in taking these snapshots, you could know the exact percentage of muscle to fat ratios and which body parts need more attention?

Enter the Skulpt AIM

The Skulpt Aim provides the easiest, most exact, and only way to measure your muscle quality (MQ) along with body fat composition.

The old days of gauging your health based on your body mass index are no more! The Skulpt, in my opinion, uses technology which makes calipers, impedance scales, and most other body-comp tests irrelevant… and it fits in the palm of your hand.

What is the Skulpt AIM?

The Skulpt AIM unit is about the size of your average smart phone. There is a screen on one side and twelve metal bar sensors on the other. Once you've downloaded the software to your smart phone or computer, you are ready to go. The AIM unit tells you which part of your body to put the sensors on. Spritz the area with water and lay the sensor flush against the skin. This is where the technology takes over.

How does the Skulpt AIM technology work?

The AIM unit uses EIM technology (Electrical Impedance Myography). This was developed by the founders of Skulpt – Dr. Seward Rutkove (Neurologist at Harvard) and Dr. Jose Bohroquez (Electrical Engineer MIT). It was developed to track the muscle progress in patients that were suffering from various muscular disorders. Before EIM, there really was no way to see this muscle progress.

Skuplt MQ - Muscle Quality

With the Skulpt AIM unit, the EIM technology does the work for you. It uses a total of 12 sensors on multiple frequencies to send a small current through the muscle. The current will flow differently through the muscles due to muscle fiber size and composition. AIM evaluates the results and gives you the MQ of your muscles. Best of all, it is painless and takes only seconds.

As a quick cautionary note though – because the Skulpt AIM unit uses tiny electrical impulses, people with electrical devices implanted – like pacemakers – and pregnant women are not advised to use it.

How do I use the Skulpt Aim to measure my body fat (BF) and muscle quality (MQ)?

The AIM unit will run through and tell you which muscles to test or you can choose the muscle. If you measure your biceps, triceps, abdominal region, and thighs, the AIM unit will give you your total body fat % and total MQ (Muscle Quality) score. An average MQ score is around 100. The higher the score, the better. (I've shared my results below)

The Skulpt AIM unit comes with a charging station, and will sync with select devices via Bluetooth. The unit will allow up to 6 different users programmed in at any given time, as well assigned a unique color so to differentiate the results. You can track your progress daily, monthly, and yearly using the color graphs and scales. Everything is extremely easy to read and understand.

So is the Skulpt AIM worth owning?

For any serious athlete, this AIM unit is definitely worth every penny. Tracking muscular development and quality of muscle along with body fat percentage, this is key, but best of all you'll never use a pair of calipers again! Whether you're a competitive athlete or a weekend warrior, anyone who spends time to train their body will find this progressive piece of technology purely awesome!

  1. This would make body comp tracking on my clients a breeze! Thanks for the helpful review, Dai.

  2. a friend of mine got a Skulpt so we tried it on each other. we did some of my measurements twice – i was surprised at how much variation it showed – one measurement was 10% the first time and 12% the second. another measurement went from 20% to 18%.

    • That’s very interesting indeed, @evanspaleochallenge:disqus. Was the variation based on same body part or overall? I did the tests on myself 3 times to test accuracy and it was pretty much the same readings each time. I wonder if the unit received was fully charged. If it was, I would suspect it to be a glitch. Keep me posted.

      • same bodypart. i wasn’t paying a lot of attention to it but i did see the variation on a couple body parts. next time we do it i’ll take better notes 🙂

      • Cool. Let me know what happens and I’ll circle back with someone from Skulpt to look into it too.

      • Evan’s variations are consistent with my own testing experience. Shannon Conners had a great blog on finding and dealing with the variation. blogs.sas.com/content/jmp/2015/09/04/assessing-my-skulpt-aim-data-with-jmp/

  3. Where can you buy it and how much?

  4. Interesting. This is the first I’ve heard of this product. I’m curious to know what sort of independent research has been done with it. I’ll check the Googles, but definitely an eyebrow raiser. If it’s good, I want to know when it will be integrated with my smartphone? Thanks Dai.

    • Good question, @adamtrainor:disqus. I know the app allows it to interface with your smart phone now, but based on the tech, I’m not sure how/when they’ll figure out out how to integrate directly into a smart phone. But that would be cool!
