Abstract

Chemotherapy is a common treatment of neoplasm with highly varying outcome. The efficiency of the therapy and the caused side effects depend strongly on the tolerance rate of the patient. The tolerance is expected to be higher for active people. Here we present a preliminary work on setting up a protocol for monitoring the activity rate of patients during chemotherapeutic treatment. Our setup consists of a set of commercial fitness devices and a central server for evaluating data. We showcase criteria for selecting the appropriate device and discuss the possibilities of scaling up the configuration. We also consider aspects of patients' anonymity and how the proposed protocol compares to traditional methods.
