The expert system that they produced had: • • • • a carefully designed, inviting user interface; a powerful knowledge base; an extensive IF–THEN rule inference engine; a recommendation system. The overall aim of this expert system was to optimize athletes’ availability for training and competition. The knowledge base and inference engine were designed to identify any high risks to athlete well-being by monitoring the catabolic effects of exercise. It was anticipated that this system would identify prospective risks to athletes and enable coaches, sport scientists and physiotherapists to manage any potential or actual injury.
