English translation:torsional-load strength
Explanation:
In full for your sentence: "... polar stress-strain index (pSSI), which expresses torsional-load strength".

For the index (first site):
"Bone strength index (BSI) and stress-strain index (SSI), which reflect the mechanical strength of bone, declined with advancing age, especially after menopause".

For the part about torsional load (from the second site):
"Bone under prolonged torsional load (corresponding to very low frequency) exhibits localized slippage, sufficient to be observable as a microscopic displacement, at the cement lines in bovine plexiform bone (Lakes and Saha, 1979) and in human Haversian bone."

You may find the first reference useful for the rest of your translation!
