The medical diagnosis system described here uses underlying knowledge in the isokinetic domain, obtained by combining the expertise of a physician specialised in isokinetic techniques and data mining techniques applied to a set of existing data. An isokinetic machine is basically a physical support on which patients exercise one of their joints, in this(More)
Isokinetics systems are now a leading technology for assessing muscle strength and diagnosing muscle injuries. These systems are very expensive, for which reason they should be put to the best possible use. However, the computer interfaces that now come with isokinetics systems only provide a simple graphical display of the strength data, that is, do not(More)
In this article, we describe the process of discovering similar patterns in time series and creating reference models for population groups in a medical domain, and particularly in the field of physiotherapy, using data mining techniques on a set of isokinetic data. The discovered knowledge was evaluated against the expertise of a physician specialized in(More)
