The formoline body analysis allows you to calculate all relevant parameters in next to no time, regardless of whether you want to reduce or maintain your weight.
Using the body analysis tool, formoline offers you the opportunity to get information on your Body Mass Index (BMI), waist measurement, and energy needs, which are calculated according to medical and scientific guidelines. This information serves as the basis for your use of our formoline products as part of your weight-loss strategy.
The BMI calculator is not suitable for people under 18 years of age. The body mass index was developed to evaluate the weight of an adult in relation to his or her height. For children and adolescents, the BMI is not used, but tables that take age and height into account.

The BMI sets the weight in relation to the square of the body height (kg/m²). With the BMI the body weight can be classified according to the weight classes of the WHO.
Classification of the BMI for Adults according to the WHO¹
- BMI (kg/m2)
According to the German Adiposity Society, the BMI is suitable for making an initial assessment of body weight and determining whether the weight is within the normal or overweight range. However, it does not consider whether the body weight is mainly derived from depot fat or muscle mass, how old the person is or their gender. The distribution of body fat can also play a role.1 Evidence-based guideline: Prevention and treatment of obesity. Version 2014.
Long-term studies have shown that people with a higher waist circumference also have a higher health-risk. The likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease or high blood pressure is greatly increased. An indicator for “abdominal obesity” is the waist measurement.
Calculation of Basal Metabolic Rate according to the Harris-Benedict Formula (in kcal):
Men: 66.5 + (13.7 x weight in kg) + (5.0 x height in cm) – (6.8 x age in years) Women: 655 +(9.6 x weight in kg) + (1.8 x height in cm) – (4.7 x age in years)
Calculation of the TEE
Basal Metabolic Rate x activity factor (very light: Basal Metabolic Rate x 1.2, normal: Basal Metabolic Rate x 1.4, moderate: Basal Metabolic Rate x 1.6, active: Basal Metabolic Rate x 1.8, very active: Basal Metabolic Rate x 2.0
