Abstract

A system is proposed for the utilization of a broad set of quantitative human function/performance measurements to identify locations and extent of lesions in skeletal, muscular, or nervous systems. Basic measurement data collected from the patient (more than 300 discrete measures) with a computerized sensory and motor function test battery are converted into the form of a performance profile vector. This vector serves as the input to a system with three knowledge bases: (1) a comprehensive description of neuromuscular anatomy, (2) normal function standards for each test measure; and (3) dysfunction pattern rules. The output will be an estimate describing levels of confidence for decisions regarding involvement of muscles and/or neural pathways, as well as a list of structures responsible for impaired performance.
