Abstract:Children normally build up their condition largely through play in interaction with other children. This interaction largely disappears in children with cancer, partly due to the intensive process of treatment, deterioration of condition and the risk of infection. In particular, muscle weakness in oncological children is associated with a poor quality of life. For that reason, it is necessary to influence the decline in strength and condition. Furthermore, it is also the case that children with cancer are already regularly in hospital for treatments and/or acute illness and they often have negative feelings and associations, hence the desire to move care home as much as possible. The aim of this study is to gain insight into the needs and expectations of children with ALL and their parents regarding e-health in general and the possibilities of using e-health in home rehabilitation. The research question is as follows: 'What are the needs of children with ALL between 4 and 10 years old and their parents with regard to exercise and the use of the care robot Maatje during a rehabilitation process within the home situation?'
