The problem of short children (stunting) is one of the nutritional problems faced in the world, especially in poor and developing countries. Stunting is a problem that's associated with an increased risk of morbidity and death, suboptimal brain till late motor development and stunted mental growth. Stunting is a condition of growth faltering due to accumulation of nutrient insufficiency that lasts from pregnancy to 24 months of age. This situation is worsed by not balanced catch up growth. In Indonesia, based on Riskesdas there was 30.8% stunted children in 2018. Measurement of children's length and weight becomes very important to determine normal or abnormal conditions by calculating anthropometry and Z-score. So far, the measurement is done manually. This study discusses the design of the Arduino microcontrooler-based children's length and weight measurements using ultrasonic and load cell sensors. Results data from sensors then processed in microcontroller and displayed on the LCD. The desaigned instrument could also connect to a smartphone via bluetooth.

Keyphrases: body weight sensor, length measurement, Loadcell, Stunting, Ultrasonic, Z-score
