The Fujimoto Body Surface Area calculatorHeightWeight.png computes the body surface area of  the human body based on the person's weight (w) and height (h).  

INSTRUCTIONS: Choose your preferred weight and height units and enter the following:

  • (w) The weight of the person.
  • (h) The height of the person.

BSA: The BSA is computed in square meters (m²).  However, this can be automatically converted into other area units via the pull-down menu.

General Information

The Fujimoto formula is as follows:
                        BSA = 0.008883* h0.663* w0.444
BSA is used in physiology and medicine.  The default input units are centimeters (cm) for height and kilograms (kg) for weight, and meters squared (m2).  However, the calculator provides automatic conversions for both the inputs and outputs to other (e.g. English) units via the pull-down menus.  To change to English units, click on the button at the right side of the height(h) input field with cm and scroll down to another unit such as inches.  You can then enter the height in inches and the conversion will be made for you.  You can do the same for weight (w) by clicking on the kg field and scroll down to pounds.  Again the conversion will be made for you.
