Body Mass Index Calculator

Body Mass Index (BMI) — is a value used to quantify the amount of tissue mass (muscle, fat, and bone) in accordance with height in an individual, and then categorize that person as underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese based on that value.

The criteria for BMI are not applicable to athletes, children,
pregnant women and the elderly.
