Welcome to BRuCe

BRuCe is a calculator for children with haemophilia and their families. It provides information about how changes in patterns of physical activity influence risk of bleeds. The risk of bleeds is expressed in terms of expected number of bleeds in a year.

You can use BRuCe to estimate the expected risk of bleeds associated with a particular pattern of physical activity. For example, you could use BRuCe to estimate the effect on risk of bleeds of playing two hours of soccer each week.

BRuCe has been produced by researchers at the George Institute for Global Health and Neuroscience Research Australia with funding from AHCDO, the Australian Haemophilia Centre Directors' Organisation.
