Correctly establishing an individual's
waist circumference is a crucial part of the new-patient registration check, '10-minute' consultation and ongoing follow-up; this new Waist Measurement Tape provides a quick and effective way to measure results and communicate them.
Waist measurement (central obesity, which is characterized by visceral adipose tissue) also seems to be a more accurate marker of the risk of cardiovascular (CV) disease and diabetes than BMI.
The tape is double-sided, with cut-off values for increased CV risk in men on one side and those for women on the reverse.
