FRAX®是以歐洲、北美、亞洲及澳洲族群為基礎的世代研究發展出來的。本站所提供之FRAX®工具是最複雜的型式,可透過電腦運算。另有幾種根據危險因子數目的簡化紙本版可下載供公務使用。

FRAX®演算法可評估10年內骨折的機率,運算出10年內髖骨骨折機率以及10年內主要骨鬆性骨折的可能性(臨床性脊椎、前臂、髖骨或肩部骨折)。

Background

The FRAX tool is designed to assist clinicians in predicting the ten-year probability of fracture with or without the addition of femoral neck bone mineral density (BMD). It is freely available and is used for around 2.8 million fracture calculations per year. The tool has been independently evaluated to be effective and robust, and has been approved by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in the UK and the Food and Drug Administration in the USA.

The University of Sheffield launched the FRAX tool in 2008. At that time the University hosted the The World Health Organisation (WHO) Collaborating Centre for Metabolic Bone Diseases (1991-2010), and the FRAX tool is based on data generated from that centre. However, FRAX was neither developed or endorsed by WHO . The University accepts that any references to the ‘WHO tool’ or to the WHO Collaborating Centre after it finished its work in 2010 are incorrect. We regret these mistakes and we are working to correct them wherever they appear.
