Calcul your Body Mass Index (BMI)

BMI calculation ruler

The BMI or Body Mass Index assesses a person’s corpulence to estimate the risk of diseases due to excess or insufficient weight (cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, diabetes). To do this, divide the weight by the height squared.

In general, the BMI is calculated for people between the ages of 18 and 65. Children are therefore not affected by this measure.

The BMI classification was established by the World Health Organization.
