Description:
Note, this calculator or tool provides an estimate of how tall a child will be as an adult. It might not be 100% accurate for all cases. Height depends on many factors such as genetics, nutrition, environment and health. A doctor or pediatrician should be consulted if you believe your child is too short or tall.
This app estimates or predicts the future adult height of a child, toddler, baby or teen based on two methods. The method selected depends on age. For children below the age of four, the calculator uses the MidParent rule. For children above the age of four, the predictions are based on the KhamisRoche Method. In addition, the calculator estimates the length the child has left to grow.
The MidParent Rule is a simple formula to calculate adult height. It is based solely on the height of the parents and the child's gender. The height of the opposite gender parent is adjusted or multiplied by a factor. For fathers, the factor is 12/13. For mothers, the factor is 12/13. The adjusted factor is averaged with the other nonadjusted parent to solve the projected adult height.
The KhamisRoche method is valid for children above the age of four. It uses age, gender, child height and weight, mother height and father height. It uses a table of scaling factors and equations based on age for the prediction. It is considered an accurate predictor. The BoneAge method is the only procedure which is more accurate than the KhamisRoche Method. However, the BoneAge method requires an xray. For more information, see the reference.
