I have been diagnosed with 2 compression fractures one of T7 and L4 over a year ago, T7 still causes me pain especially when I'm on my feet for extended periods of time and when I perform house cleaning jobs such as vacuuming and mopping floors.

Hello - As a software engineer (and a woman with osteoporosis) I am thinking of putting together a phone app which would be helpful to people with osteoporosis. I know there are apps out there which will tell you how much calcium you are getting in your food - wondering if anyone is using them and what you like/don't like about them.
What other sorts of things might a phone app be helpful for with monitoring osteoporosis - maybe setting exercise goals and sending reminders? setting goals… read more
