What is a higi Station and what does it measure?

Last Updated: Aug 05, 2016 03:33PM CDT
The higi Station is a quick and easy way to get updated on your basic health stats. Right now you'll find one in most retail pharmacies. Check out our station locator to find a station near you

The higi Station is designed to easily measure Weight, Body Mass Index (BMI), Pulse and Blood Pressure. Tracking these four stats together is key to early detection of hypertension, diabetes and other treatable health conditions. The station also provides users a higi Score, which is a measure of overall well-being based on body stats, knowledge, and community.

To assess your weight and BMI results, higi uses the CDC guidelines. You can read about the calculations we use here.

The classifications for blood pressure and pulse are based on the recommendations from the American Heart Association. Here are the links to our references:
