Short description

One out of eight women experiences breast cancer in her life, making if one of the most relevant diseases for women worldwide. Physical rehabilitation is key for social and professional reintegration. To achieve this aim, the program involves patients after surgery, trying to stimulate physical activity, including proper monitoring and patient check-ups, combined with women being active at home, whereas their activity is tracked through an app. It helps patients to recover substantially quicker, not only physically but mentally as well. In addition data collection helps to better understand the recovery process and this create a constant feedback-loop for further improvements.
The idea of the twinning adopter is to create software that collects patient data in real-time. This would prevent losing patent data that does not proceed with check-ups, would prevent the patient from having to download the data every time. Finally, workload for the medical staff is being reduced. As each mobile app collects data and supports breast cancer patients.
