An app to calculate percentiles for a number of growth parameters for children


Anthropometric Calculator

BC Children’s Hospital


The AnthroCalc app calculates percentiles and Z-scores for length/height, weight, weight-for-length/height, body-mass index, waist circumference, head circumference, arm circumference, triceps and subscapular skinfolds, target (midparental) height, predicted adult height, and height velocity for normal children (using WHO or CDC references); for blood pressure (using NIH 2004 or AAP 2017 references); for children with a number of syndromes (Turner, Down, Prader–Willi, Russell–Silver and Noonan); and for preterm infants (Fenton, INTERGROWTH-21st).
