The calculation used to achieve BMI is weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared. So for example a patient who was 1.7m in height with a weight of 82kg would have a BMI score of 28. This score can easily arrived by using a BMI chart where weight and height are shown on vertical and horizontal planes and the user can simply look up the patients BMI score by where the 2 measure cross on the chart. In the example we set of a patient with a score of 28, the patient would be classified as overweight and nearing the obese category an so might be advised to consider their diet in order to lose some excess weight.

A healthy BMI score would be in the region of 18 to 25, 29 up to circa 30 is scored as overweight and any score over 30 would be classified as obese. Our blog entitled Calculating A BMI Score goes into more detail and also shows workings for calculating BMI using imperial measures is feet, inches and pounds.

We have a range of tapes designed to help in all aspect of measuring BMI including Seca BMI and Waist Hip Ratio calculators as well electronic calculators with a BMI function.
