FRAX now available as an iPhone application
Date:6/8/2010

The WHO Fracture Risk Assessment Tool (FRAX) is now easily accessible via iPhone, making the calculation tool independent of internet access and easy to use in any clinical setting.

The FRAX tool generates the following results:

  • The 10 year probability of a major osteoporotic event
  • The 10 year probability of a hip fracture
  • Body Mass Index
  • For UK users, NOGG guidance is accessible. This provides a guide for assessors, interpreting the results and indicating potential courses of action.

The FRAX iPhone Application includes the following features:

  • PIN Protection for security purposes
  • Patient Results Management (save, delete and sort options)
  • Automatic Email Generation of each patient assessment result
  • Shake-to-Reset Scale functionality

FRAX is developed in partnership with the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), the leading non-profit, non governmental organization dedicated to the global fight against osteoporosis. Any profits from FRAX downloads will support IOF's important educational programs and projects.
