In recent years, several studies to adequately understand human physiological behaviour are being performed, proposing new models to assess the complex dynamics of biological control systems. We believe that, considering the level of order or complexity of the anatomical apparatus by measuring a physical quantity, which is the entropy and fractality, we can evaluate the health status or vice versa fragility of a biological system. Therefore, we present a method that conceptually combines complexity, disease and aging, indicative of the personal status of health, to the entropy value indicating the level biodynamic and body functional.
