Overview: HealthWatch is a free software. HealthWatch can calculate growth percentiles for infants, children and adolescents (2 to 20 years); blood pressure percentiles for children (under 17); and BMI for children and adults. This program uses data of child growth chart and baby growth chart from CDC to calculate growth percentiles, and the "Blood Pressure Tables for Children and Adolescents" from National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to calculate Blood pressure percentiles for children. HealthWatch can also evaluate underweight and over weight, identify metabolic syndrome and calculate risk for having a heart attack using the algorithms from Adult Treatment Panel III. Tools for importing and exporting mass data from other systems are available in HealthWatch Pro. Who should use HealthWatch? HealthWatch is designed for personal and family, while HealthWatch Pro is for health professionals in clinical and research settings. Parents can use this free software as a baby growth chart or child growth chart to watch their children in what growth percentile. HealthWatch can also be used as a free BMI calculator. However, unlike other BMI calculators, HealthWatch provides a graph for you to chart your health statistics over time. Furthermore, HealthWatch can be used to identify metabolic syndrome. Do you know that the metabolic syndrome has become increasingly common in the United States? It is estimated that about 47 million U.S. adults have it. The underlying causes of this syndrome are over weight/obesity, physical inactivity and genetic factors. People with the metabolic syndrome are at increased risk of coronary heart disease. This risk can be reduced if symptoms are identified early and factors contributing to coronary heart disease are altered. HealthWatch can also calculate the risk for having a heart attack and tell you how to prevent heart attack.
