Functional Assessment

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.

 

 

  • 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.)

With the determination of biomarkers, his 6-Week Program is carried out, performing the control and follow-up of the functional readaptation in in the clinic or at home, through therapeutic exercise.
