Abstract: Introduction The increased prevalence of cancer survivors requires a focus on developing long-term, cost-effective management strategies to prevent and limit disability and morbidity. 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.
