• Measuring tape (meter or roulette), assistant.
Instruction
1
For starters, be sure to find the assistant in the important matter of dimensions because to do everything yourself will be very problematic.

For the correct measurement of the volume of the forearm in the conventional sense (above the elbow) to the assistant grabbed the measuring tape in hand about 10 cm below the armpit. The arm should hang relaxed along the body. This place is – the widest part of the forearm, and its girth is correct. Keeping the measuring tape parallel to the floor, the helper is to circle around her hands and record the number seen. The tape should be free to "walk" around the hand, not clenching his and not causing inconvenience.
