TORONTO, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Aprilage Inc., the creator and developer of the APRIL® Face Aging software, announces the launch of V2.7.0 that now includes a BMI (Body Mass Index) Predictor. The APRIL® BMI Predictor allows you to choose the amount of weight you want to see added to a person's face as they age.
How it works: After uploading a simple digital photograph, choose any of five BMI levels to add: BMI level "22", "27", "33", "37", or "40". The user can also select the age, up to age 72, to which they wish to see themselves aged. For purposes of contrasting and comparing how weight changes one's appearance over time, the ability to also see the facial image age, without added weight, remains part of the regular functionality of APRIL® V2.7.0.
The APRIL ® BMI Predictor joins the "Smoking Effects" module and "Sun Exposure Effects" module in APRIL® 's suite of products for public health, medical practitioners and lifestyle counsellors worldwide who are focused on prevention, education, counselling, and research in smoking cessation, nutrition, weight and obesity, and sun safety programs.
