Calculate the body mass index (BMI) of pediatric patients with this BMI calculator wheel that will fit in your pocket. Measure the height and weight of patients under 90 lbs. and determine the corresponding BMI-for-age percentile (%ile) that they fit in to. BMI-for-age growth charts can be found below from the CDC for both boys and girls to plot the BMI value from the wheel. The BMI-for-age charts represent a tool that can be used by health care providers for the early identification of children who are at risk for becoming overweight at older ages. Research has shown that the BMI strongly correlates with the gold-standard method for measuring body fat and is an easy way for clinicians to screen individuals that might be at an increased risk due to their weight. Determine Weight Status Category by using the CDC Growth Charts for the following groups: Weight Status CategoryPercentile Range UnderweightLess than the 5th percentile Normal or Healthy Weight5th percentile to less than the 85th percentile Overweight85th to less than the 95th percentile Obese95th percentile or greater Boys BMI-for-age - 2 to 20 years: Boys Body mass index-for-age percentiles Girls BMI-for-age - 2 to 20 years: Girls Body mass index-for-age percentiles
