The caregiver role strain is today an increasing problem because of the population aging; moreover, its diagnosis is highly difficult. In this article, we summarize the design of an Expert System for the diagnosis of this health problem. The Expert System Knowledge Base is composed by a set of production rules written in classic bi-valued logic and by a set of potential facts. In order to build this Knowledge Base it has been necessary to design previously a Model of the problem treatment. The Expert System Inference Engine uses Gröbner Bases and Normal Form to obtain the diagnosis from the information stored in the Knowledge Base. Furthermore, a Graphic User’s Interface has been implemented to make easier the access to the System by all kinds of users.
