Kick-Off FORTEe project

The 5½-year-long EU-funded FORTEe project kicked off today and the fight against childhood cancer went into a new round! Sixteen partners join forces to evaluate a personalised and standardised exercise therapy for children and adolescents undergoing anti-cancer-treatment. Such treatments have proven very successful in adults, but have yet to be adapted for young patients. Through development and use of innovative digital technologies such as augmented reality for more effective, age-appropriate, and personalised exercise training, FORTEe strives to improve this situation, and to implement paediatric exercise therapy as an evidence-based standard in the EU.
