Abstract or description

With the aging population increasing at a faster rate the muscular skeletal system disorder caused by falling is becoming a challenging problem to health providers. In Thailand there is lack of training of therapists to assist the elderly people following fall injuries. The need for innovative approaches to help with the care of elderly is required. This paper addresses this issue by describing a decision support system based on a case based reasoning paradigm to support the physiotherapists in their care for the elderly.
