Tape measure awaiting FDA approval?

Filed under: — Different River @ 4:05 pm

Medgadget has this interesting report:

Just when you thought you needed a fancy BMI calculator, new data suggests a tape measure provides plenty of insight into your health. …

In addition to gauging pre-diabetic states, the tape measure (pictured above) can be used to determine height, and the distances between objects. No word yet on when it will be available in the United States and at what stage of the FDA approval process it is at.
