Anyone who measures a child, plots or interprets charts should be suitably trained, or be supervised by someone qualified to do so.
Note: Our videos for health professionals on measuring techniques and using the growth charts, which were published about 14 years ago, have been removed. We apologise for any inconvenience. Our written guides continue to be available.
We have, for the first time ever, developed an API (application programming interface) to accurately calculate centiles for a child’s height, weight, head circumference and BMI for digital growth assessments.
Award-winning, gold standard and open source, our API will enable developers of electronic patient records to build apps and interfaces that give clinicians solid data to improve care, and parents online access to their child's growth records.
