Das Prinzip ist, dass frühzeitige bewegungstherapeutische Interventionen noch vor der medizinischen Krebstherapie die Patienten körperlich wie auch psychisch fit für die Krebsbehandlung machen. Ziel ist damit eine Verhinderung bzw. Abmilderung von Komplikationen und Nebenwirkungen. Erste Daten zeigen, dass nicht nur relevante, krebsspezifische Nebenwirkungen verhindert, sondern auch die medizinische Therapiedosierung erhalten und Krankenhaustage reduziert werden können.
