The Fracture Risk Assessment Tool (FRAX®) offers the medical practitioner an easy-to-use tool to calculate an individual patient’s 10-year probability of an osteoporotic fracture. Osteoporosis management guidelines around the world now increasingly recommend that fracture risk assessment be part of any clinical evaluation to help inform treatment decisions.
This App makes FRAX calculations handily available via smartphone or tablet – for maximum flexibility in any clinical setting.
FRAX generates the following results:
- the 10-year probability of a major osteoporotic event (clinical spine, forearm, hip or shoulder fracture).
- the 10-year probability of a hip fracture
- Body Mass Index
Models are available for the following countries/population groups:
Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lithuania, Malta, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Palestine, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Singapore-Chinese, Singapore-Indians, Singapore-Malays, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, UK, US-Asian, US- Black, US-Caucasian, US-Hispanic, Venezuela

IRAN missing in the app
In website Iran is in the list but is not in the app. Please add Iran country to app. Thanks for your useful app.
Could be better
This app does what it needs to, but wasn't designed with usability in mind. The scrolling interface to specify age and the BMD may look pretty, but is absolutely horrible to use. Also, it would be much better to allow somebody to start with a screen loaded with (appropriate) defaults and only update the parts that need to be updated, rather than force the user to step through every question every time. No thought whatsoever was put into this user interface.
I bought this, but it takes about 2 minutes to calculate a frax score. It should be redesigned to do this in 10-20 seconds. A good example is the ASCVD app. The T score entry requires scrolling though one decimal place at a time to get to your patient's score. For example, going from 0 to negative 2.2 requires hitting a button 22 times.
