The first phase of developing a connectionist expert system is described in this study. Dynamic pressure patterns below the foot obtained by the emed f system of 18 subjects were classified into one of the three categories: normals, pes cavus and hallux valgus. As opposed to the traditional approach for the analysis of the pressure patterns by quantifying isolated segments, a neural network based expert system was trained to perform objective classification of the patterns while keeping their… CONTINUE READING
