|Abstract: ||Internet provides a new environment to develop a variety of applications. Hence,
large amounts of data, increasing every day, are stored and transferred through the internet.
These data are normally weakly structured making information disperse, uncorrelated,
non-transparent and difficult to access and share. Semantic Web, proposed by
theWorldWideWeb Consortium (W3C), addresses this problem by promoting semantic
structured data, like ontologies, enabling machines to perform more work involved in
finding, combining, and acting upon information on theWeb.
Pursuing this vision, a Knowledge Acquisition System (KAS) was created, written
Schema to define that structure. It grants new ways to acquire and store knowledge
semantically structured and human readable. Plus, structuring data with a Schema generates
a software robust and error – free.
A novel Human Computer Interaction (HCI) framework was constructed employing
this KAS, allowing the end user to configure and control medical devices. To demonstrate
the potential of this tool, we present the configuration and control of an electrostimulator.
Nowadays, most of the software for Electrostimulation is made with specific purposes,
and in some cases they have complicated user interfaces and large, bulky designs
that deter usability and acceptability. The HCI concedes the opportunity to configure
and control an electrostimulator that surpasses the specific use of several electrostimulator
software. In the configuration the user is able to compile different types of electrical
impulses (modes) in a temporal session, automating the control, making it simple and
