During the Functional Assessment we will perform a clinical interview to know the PERSON and detect his/her main symptoms and clinical signs with a special interest in cancer-related fatigue, and we will carry out a thorough and instrumental exploration to identify the potential for recovery / compensation of mobility and the functional condition.
- Scientific evaluation of Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) using the instrument QuickPIPER (Cuesta-Vargas et al Eur J Cancer Care (Engl). 2013 Mar;22(2):245-52.), which allows the determination of the value of the behavioral, sensory, affective and cognitive dimensions, as well as an overall value of Fatigue (CRF).
- Functional orthogoniometry, using inclinometers, magnetometers and accelerometers, along with with the clinical reasoning, will determine the local and global joint movement values of each primary motor pattern, allowing the identification of the functional adaptation of the specific case. (Cuesta Vargas et al Eur J Cancer Care (Engl) 2014 Jan; 23 (1): 15-21.)
- Ergometry and Adapted Dynamometry, using dynamometers and pulse monitoring, the values of neuromuscular strength and cardiopulmonary resistance are determined with analytical tests and daily life activities adapted to each clinical case (Cantarearo-Villanueva et al., Arch Phys Med Rehabil. 2013 Feb; 94 (2): 221-30.)
