NOTE: This calculator app is intended for the use of healthprofessionals and researchers, not for patient or general publicuse. The generated Percentage Weight For Height value (%WFH),otherwise known as Percentage BMI (%BMI), is often considered to bemore clinically meaningful in paediatric growth measurement thanBMI alone. It is expressed as a percentage of the median BMI, for achild or adolescent, of that same sex and age. %WHF is widelyconsidered as an essential measurement in the assessment andmanagement of paediatric eating disorders such as AnorexiaNervosa.
