The FORE 10-Year Fracture Risk Calculator™ (FORE FRC) Version 2.0 published 12/4/2012 estimates 10-year fracture risk for postmenopausal women and men age 45 and older who are not receiving treatment for osteoporosis.

The FORE FRC closely aligns to the United States FRAX™ version 3.0 from the World Health Organization, with few exceptions. We invite you to learn more about the FORE FRC, and review our recent changes.

To use the calculator simply fill in the form below and click Calculate Risk.
