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:
"There is nothing like a great graphic depicting the real nature and extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."

"At 3 PM it hit me--I needed exhibits of a tracheostomy, a coronary artery bypass and a deep vein thrombosis--all in time for a for-trial video deposition the next day. The Doe Report had each exhibit on line. In addition, I ran across an exhibit I hadn't even thought of: reduced ejection fraction after a heart attack. Because this was a video deposition, I could use the e-mail version of the medical exhibit, print it on my color copier, and let the camera zoom in. For $400, less than one blow-up by one of The Doe Report's competitors, I got four first-rate exhibits in less than a day. The Doe Report saved me time and money."

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

Aaron R. Larson, Esq.

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."
