Abstract

Objective: Cancer diagnosis, treatment side effects and physical inactivity can lead to reduced muscle strength. Patients undergoing acute treatment experience many burdens that can restrict their mobility and autonomy, leading to limited independence and loss of resources to cope with everyday tasks. In this work, we analyse the status quo and potential influencing factors for the accomplishment of activities of daily living (ADLs) shortly after cancer diagnosis. Methods: We recruited participants ages 4–18 years diagnosed with acute leukaemia or non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
