The Option of Exercise for the Cancer Patient

According to studies conducted Cancer patients may benefit from physical exercise both during and after treatment even though the specific beneficial effects of physical exercise may vary as a function of the stage of disease, the nature of the medical treatment, and the current lifestyle of the patient.
Many, if not most, cancer patients are interested in prolonging their life and not ”giving up”. Getting involved in an exercise program suitable to their medical status can be one of the best options for living an active life and returning to normal activities.
As an example breast cancer patients can make use of devices like the ARMTUTOR which allows for reaching out and
 performing controlled and repetitive exercise rehabilitation practice. It does this through the use of various games which are at a patient-customized level with real time accurate feedback on the patient’s performance.  The rehabilitation games are also suitable for a wide variety of neurological and orthopedic injuries and diseases.
 The games challenge the patient to perform the exercise at a customized difficulty level. This level is set by the OT or PT and encourages the patient to do intensive repetitive exercise practice.
The ARMTUTOR allows for isolated and a combination of elbow and three directional shoulder treatments. The system provides detailed exercise performance instructions and precise feedback on the patient’s exercise performance. Overall, controlled exercise of multijoints within a normal movement pattern will prevent the patient developing an undesired or compensatory joint movement pattern.
The ARMTUTOR and its sister devices (LEGTUTOR, HANDTUTOR, 3DTUTOR) can be used to exercise lower limb surgeries and cancer related disabilities. The TUTORs are used wordwide in leading hospitals and clinics. They can be used at home through telerehabilitation See WWW.HANDTUTOR.COM for more information.
