The FRAX® tool has been developed by WHO to evaluate fracture risk of patients. It is based on individual patient models that integrate the risks associated with clinical risk factors as well as bone mineral density (BMD) at the femoral neck.
The FRAX® models have been developed from studying population-based cohorts from Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. In their most sophisticated form, the FRAX® tool is computer-driven and is available on this site. Several simplified paper versions, based on the number of risk factors are also available, and can be downloaded for office use.
The FRAX® algorithms give the 10-year probability of fracture. The output is a 10-year probability of hip fracture and the 10-year probability of a major osteoporotic fracture (clinical spine, forearm, hip or shoulder fracture).
There is a version available for

Osteoporosis Risk Check Online
The IOF Osteoporosis Risk Check is intended as a tool to raise awareness of factors which are known to increase the risk of osteoporosis and fractures. This risk check is not a diagnostic tool: only a doctor can diagnose osteoporosis. Although the replies are generated based on information you provide, they are general in nature and may not be relevant to your individual circumstances. Please consult a doctor to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
