Why it is important to measure often weight and blood pressure

Many researches have proved that weight influences blood pressure. BMI (Body Mass Index) seems to be directly correlated with the increase of blood pressure. Our Body Weight scales compute BMI and print a ticket with the judgement based on WHO thresholds. A person can keep her/his weight under control checking this value often. Body Weight scales and AutoPress blood pressure monitor are the professional solution that enable pharmacies and doctors to offer a screening service for their customers, for a small fee or for free.

What is BMI?

Body Mass Index (BMI) is an index invented by Adolphe Quetelet (1796-1874), that was renamed Body Mass Index (BMI) in 1972 by Ancel Keys (1904-2004). A high BMI value is related to a risk of heart and blood vessel diseases. People with BMI between 25 and 29 have a 70% more chance of developing such diseases compared to a person with a value below 25. People with BMI over 30 have 300% more chances!
