Background Cancer survivors with pain, weakness and restricted movement often benefit from targeted exercise programmes provided by a Physiotherapist. Physical, psychological and situational factors can impact on patients abilities to complete these exercises. In recent years, interactive biofeedback exercise systems have been shown to be effective in the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal impairments. Such a system has not yet been developed for cancer survivors. Proposal An targeted rehabilitation exercise biofeedback system for use in cancer survivors is proposed. This system aims to enhance rehabilitation outcomes using biofeedback, gamification and adherence promotion strategies. Conclusion An online targeted-exercise biofeedback system for use in cancer rehabilitation would be an innovative, beneficial development for the growing numbers of individuals surviving cancer.||Funding Details:||European Commission Horizon 2020||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Copyright (published version):||2017 IEEE||Keywords:||Cancer survivorship; Targeted exercise; Biofeedback; Mobile application||DOI:||10.1109/CBMS.2017.104||Other versions:||https://www.cbms2017.org/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||2017 IEEE 30th International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS)||Conference Details:||The 30th IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS 2017), Thessaloniki, Greece, 22-24 June 2017.||ISBN:||9781538617106||ISSN:||1063-7125|
