Knee Osteoarthritis Prediction
Agricultural workers are very vulnerable to developing Knee OsteoArthritis (KOA), which is a degenerative “wear-and-tear” type of arthritis . KOA develops slowly but the pain it encompasses worsens over time, affecting to a great extent the ability of agricultural workers. Prevention of osteoarthritis is multi-factorial and requires a versatile investigation for the purpose of developing, implementing and evaluating of ergonomic improvements. We apply advanced classification models suitable for very large data sets to overcome the problem of high dimensionality compared to the existing statistical techniques applied to the KOA risk prediction problem.
