Screening for Risk of Health Problems from Obesity - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Screening for risk of health problems from obesity. Two common ways to help gauge your risk of health problems from obesity are body mass index, also known as BMI, and waist size. BMI estimates your body fat by comparing your height to your weight. You can enter your measurements into a BMI calculator or your health care provider can figure out your BMI for you. Once you know your BMI, you or your healthcare provider can find it on a chart to see if you are underweight, a healthy weight, overweight, or obese. BMI for children and teens is called BMI for age. BMI for age is calculated the same way as adult BMI but the child's results are compared with growth charts. Adults can evaluate belly fat by measuring their waist size with a tape measure. Men with a waist size above 40 inches and non-pregnant women with a waist size above 35 inches may have a higher risk of health problems from obesity. If you have questions about your risk of health problems from obesity, talk to your healthcare provider.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your illustration to the defendants, with a copy to the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.

I appreciate your help!"

"The Doe Report is a visual feast of medical information for personal injury lawyers."

Aaron R. Larson, Esq.

"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."
