Growth Chart Components PC PAL

Country specific Growth Charts

We make computerized growth charts for many different countries and the list is growing.


The components for the USA utilise references from the National Centre for Health and Statistics and replicate the printed charts. Following the adoption of the World Health Organisation 0–5 years (2006) and 0–19 years revision (2008) for obesity monitoring these standards have also been implemented.


The latest WHO references are gathered to provide a version for international customers and doctors treating adopted children.


PC PAL first developed computerized growth charts for the Swedish market at the beginning of 1990. In 1999 the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare selected them to develop a standard format for growth charts to be used across Sweden.


The Norwegian growth charts produced by PC PAL are widely used in Norway and by one of the largest hospital in the whole Scandinavia, Oslo University Hospital.

The large selection of the charts offers flexibility to clinical practices. Both old and new national references are included.

The growth charts are implemented according to the Norweigian standard growth chart design. In addition, five charts with WHO references have been added.


The Icelandic charts are implemented with the Swedish national reference and translated into Icelandic.


For France the Carnet de Santé reference and nationwide official format is implemented so that the charts are identical to those used throughout France.

United KingdomUnited Kingdom

The UK growth charts are developed with British 1990 growth reference, which is the official UK growth reference from 1996 to 2009. Different age ranges of the growth charts are proposed to match with the paper charts used in clinics and hospitals: 1–4 years, 2–4 years, 1–5 years, 5–18 years and 0–20 years. References for premature children are divided into two groups: GA<32w or GA >32w


For the German market, in addition to national reference, the Growth Chart Component includes reference values for height, weight and BMI of German born Turkish children.

Several disease specific references are implemented as well, covering Turner syndrome, Down syndrome, Noonnan syndrome and CRI (Chronic renal insufficiency).


The Growth Chart Component for Netherlands is using the latest 2010 references published by TNO.

BelgiumBelgium and Switzerland

US, WHO, Belgian and Swiss charts are translated into several languages to accommodate users from different regions.



Customized Growth Charts

Drawing from our extensive reference library, PC PAL can incorporate any population or specific disease reference set and implement different calculation methodologies. Alternatively, customers can supply their own dataset, design layout and description of additional features crucial to fulfilling their specific needs. We have worked with a number of institutions in this way and would be delighted to discuss your individual requirements. Contact us

Disease specific versions

Using disease specific growth references the Growth Chart Component can draw the graph using an existing chart format or be structured to match your specification for example simultaneously displaying the normal population range as a shadow curve. Charts have previously been added for chondrodystrophies, Prader-Willi, Downs, Noonan and Turner Syndrome.
