Osteoporotic and age-related fractures are a significant public health problem. One of the most common osteoporotic fracture sites in the aging population is distal radius. There is evidence in the literature that distal radius fractures (Colles’ fracture) are an indicative of increased risk of future spine and hip fractures . Therefore, developing new methods for accurate evaluation of human radius fracture risk is necessary. The previous studies showed that geometrical properties of the radius correlate with its fracture load . However, the combined effect of geometrical and material properties on fracture load has not been studied.
