Objective

This research chair was established in 2018. Its main objective is to raise the quality of life of the growing cancer population. Even though the amount of cancer patients raises tremendously, the mortality-rate is descending. Consecutively, the life quality of this group of chronical patients has become more and more important through the years.

Unfortunately, our society struggles with the lack of possibilities for the intake and follow-up of patients with long-term side effects of cancer. Together with their partner Home Health Products, prof. dr. Nele Adriaenssens and her team will analyse how Andullation technology can influence the frequent complications of cancer treatments (pain, stress, insomnia and lymphedema) positively by preventive intervention.

How?

The research team will investigate whether complications can be avoided by a preventive intervention at the start of the cancer patient’s treatment.
