This paper briefly summarises the most recent developments in multiscale modelling technology as applied to the generation of personalised multiscale models of the musculoskeletal system to be used for the prediction of the risk of bone fracture. We describe how the VHPOP European consortium is compositing all these groundbreaking methods into a radically innovative multiscale technology that can radically change the clinical practice in a few years. A concrete proof of concept, based on the multiscale data made available by the Living Human Digital Library (LHDL) project, is briefly described, showing how multiscale modelling can be used to predict the risk of fracture in specific subjects with much greater accuracy.
