New Measure Me BMI app developed by Children’s Health Ireland at Temple Street

The Measure Me app has been developed to calculate a child’s BMI and to identify if the child is a healthy weight or overweight. Parents and doctors need to know whether a child is overweight so that they can address the issue as soon as possible. Since calculating a child’s BMI is not that straightforward as children are still growing, this app can be a helpful tool for both parents and doctors. 

The Measure Me app has been developed by Childrens Health Ireland at Temple Street and University College Dublin. It has been unconditionally supported by Consilient Health.

The app is available to download on your mobile or tablet by entering “Measure Me” in the Apple iStore or the Google Play Store, or download immediately by clicking on one of the buttons below.
