Determine your absolute fracture risk
This web-based tool allows you to determine your 10-year risk for fracture. Please use the tool, it's free of charge.
It's takes about a minute to enter age, bone mineral density (BMD), height and weight, and to click (yes/no) on seven other risk factors. The model immediately calculates 10-year fracture risks and shows this in an easy to understand graph that can be printed, saved, and used for patient counseling.
You can access the calculator at http://riskcalculator.fore.org.

Development of the tool was made possible through an unrestricted grant from Procter & Gamble Pharmaceuticals.
