The aim of the project was to design a microcontroller based automated Body Mass Index (BMI)calculator with LCD display, which calculates the body mass index using the two basic parameters that are weight and height. The hardware of the project consists of a weighing mechanism i.e. weighing machine, which is used to calculate the body weight of a person, and a height sensing mechanism i.e. LDR, which is use to calculate the height of a person. The weight of the person is calculated in Kilograms…

DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION AND PERFORMANCE STUDY OF AN ELECTRONIC BODY MASS INDEX INSTRUMENT

TLDR
The designed system was used to estimate the BMI of eight individuals of different gender and the performance evaluation of the system was compared with the four groups category cited by World Health Organization in the BMI chart.

Detecting impending malnutrition of elderly people in domestic smart home environments

TLDR
The average time for preparing a meal is a suitable indicator for doctors and nutritionists to examine the patient further, become aware of an impending malnutrition, and intervene at an early stage of malnutrition.

A Framework for Internet of Things-Based Body Mass Index Estimation and Obesity Prediction

TLDR
This paper presents a framework for IoT based BMI estimation with obesity prediction using ultrasonic sensor and strain gauge load cell for body weight estimation and an IoT edge algorithm for big data reduction was implemented in Arduino before sending the result to the cloud for obesity prediction.

  • Medicine
  • 2021
TLDR
Self-service kiosks can measure parameters like Blood Pressure (BP), Body Mass Composition (BMC), Height, Weight, Body Mass Index (BMI), Electrocardiogram (ECG), Pulse rate, Oxygen saturation, Body Temperature and a 6 lead ECG – All basic parameters which are required pre doctor consult.

ISSK- An Integrated Self Service Kiosk for Health Monitoring and Management

TLDR
The aim of the work is to provide effortless scalable preventive care solution by keeping tracking of few vitals medical parameters like Blood Pressure (BP), BMC, Body Mass Index (BMI), Electrocardiogram (EKG), Pulse and Weight.

and BMI Assessment Machine with Recommended Ideal

TLDR
A BMI assessment machine that automatically calculates BMI value, displays the nutritional status and suggests ideal weight was developed and the suggestion of ideal weight by the machine was comparable to the manual calculation of ideal.

HEIGHT, WEIGHT AND BODY MASS INDEX MEASUREMENT USING MATLAB

TLDR
A webcam is used to capture the image of person, whose height is to be measured, and weight sensor is used for measuring the weight of the person and hence Body Mass Index (BMI) is calculated to decide the fitness of person.
