How Does the Body Mass Index Calculator Work?
The Formidable Forms BMI Calculator is simple. A person enters his height and body weight and then clicks the "See my range" button. A BMI is tabulated and the results are displayed under the form. It’s an easy way to give visitors a fast insight into their physical health.
Why BMI Matters
BMI is a method used to diagnose excessive weight and obesity. Using the relationship between height and weight, the BMI provides a more accurate assessment than using weight alone. The higher a BMI, the greater the risk for heart disease, diabetes, stroke, cancer and more.
Who is it For?
This BMI calculator widget provides helpful data for a range of brands and businesses in the health and fitness industries—From medical practices and government health organizations to gyms, beauty blogs, and more.
