—The study is a mobile health (M-Health) expert
system embedded on Android OS phones as an assistance tool
that can support people experiencing physical injuries. It
utilizes the Rete Algorithm which is present on most expert
systems. The system covers physical injuries which commonly
experienced by athletes and students enrolled in human
kinetics. Physical injuries are categorized into head, upper
body and lower body parts. From these parts, they are defined
by type such as: skin injury, bone injury, muscle injury and
The researchers used descriptive method in the study. After
the system was developed, it was evaluated by the two groups
of respondents: a) experts and b) students based on the four (4)
parameters such as user-friendliness, functionality, usability
and appropriateness of advice. According to the data gathered,
analyzed and computed, the proponents found out that there is
no significant difference between the evaluation made by the
students and by the experts on the developed mobile health
application. Both groups of respondents recommend the
implementation of CERES.
