Life is in times of striking social transformation. In this perspective we got several tracks open. The western world is becoming each time older and people face other new conditions which directly affect themselves and resulting otherwise than directly come back over the society. So, osteoporosis is a major public health threat. Currently it is estimated that over 200 million people worldwide suffer from this disease. In some countries, the rate of hip fractures is rising faster than the population. By 2050, the worldwide incidence of hip fracture is projected to increase by 240% in women and 310% in men. But we have not a good tool which fit properly to diagnosing this problem that come over us. Because we are using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry(DXA) in base of mineral bone density(BMD) and bone risk factors. BMD is only BMD, risk factors for osteoporosis are only risk factors and mixing of both parameters does not make quite more sense. It is not best than each of them alone. Bone risk factors are good but not necessarily one disease and neither enough. It is important to understand that bone is not a hard and lifeless structure; it is, in fact, a complex, living tissue. So, risk factors for cardiovascular events are a very good example for this question. But which is the best testing for cardiovascular conditions?. Maybe the Halter monitoring?. Maybe this is the answer to. And maybe here is the answer to osteoporosis diagnosis. Therefore principles of engineering, mathematics, robotics and physical sciences must be used for studying bone diseases and here must stay new university research methods for new time conditions and find a tool which fit osteoporosis diagnosis, because without diagnosis we can not solve the problem and now we have not this tool.
