I am 28-year-old female and only 3 feet 4.5 inches tall and in a wheelchair. I tried your calculator and I do not agree with what it said. You claim that someone my height should weight 90 to 110 pounds. I am 86 pounds and you say I am underweight! Have you ever seen someone that is my height? I am overweight and if I weighed what you say I would be in worse shape than I am now. I think you need to re-think the weight. Also, if I had the calories that you say I would gain like a pig I feel like one now. 1,660 is a joke you must want us short fat people to die.


    WHOA, you got me pegged wrong!

    The calculator has some built in safeguards because people with anorexia use it. I don’t want them to get the false impression that they can weigh less than 100 pounds no matter what their height or current weight.

    Yours is a special case in 2 ways – your height and that you use a chair. I have looked for accurate data for people with spinal cord injuries and people in wheelchairs but have not found any. Further, there are no formulas or tables to use for little people. Sorry, but the calculator won’t give you the data you are looking for. I will continue to look for accurate data for little people and people with spinal cord injuries so that I can make the calculator work for more people. Do you have any information from working with various health professionals?
