- Chronic Energy Deficiency (CED) in pregnant women is just becoming a nutrition issue during the perinatal period in Indonesia. CED occurs when energy and protein necessity, are not fulfilled by the intake consumed. CED during pregnancy has a major impact on complications for mothers, babies and perinatal mortality. CED in pregnancy is a continuation of CED in adolescence. CED screening in adolescence measuring using Body Mass Index (BMI). BMI is actually more accurate to identify the real condition of nutritional status at the time of measurement but, it unusually done because the process is more complicated, the cadres or midwives have to calculate manually. However, It is compulsory to design a simpler and practical BMI measuring instrument. This research aim to create prototype design of BMI for adolescence to prevent CED in pregnancy using an arduino. In order to help the Public Health Center (PHC) for examination CED before pregnancy. This research design utilizes a system development life cycle (SDLC), which the stages of planning, analysis, design, implementation, testing and management applied to system. The prototype design starts with planning the tools, the calibration process, the detection of the sensor, the BMI calculation consist of 4 categories (CED, normal, overweight, and obese) for Indonesian female. This categories will appear on the LCD display. This prototype can be developed into an android application, so it was very useful for adolescence and women in PHC or Integrated Post Service in Indonesia.
