BMI is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform method of screening for weight categories that may lead to health problems. Simple convenient user interface.
Version 1.5: The new formula for calculation body surface area (Lee JY et al., 2008) is added. Menu Bar to the BSAcalc is added. Access to the references from the menu is added. Requires a valid Internet account and browser software.
