Here is an article on using MUAC and height to estimate weight. This is nutritional anthropometry but the application is first response emergency medicine. If follows on a similar article from 2016 but is based on a lot more (and more recent) data. I think the method has merit and we will be looking for a small field trial. Is anyone interested in helping with that?
