    Abstract

    In cancer survivors physical activity levels are measured primarily with questionnaires. As a result, insight in actual physical activity patterns of cancer survivors is lacking. Activity monitoring with accelerometers revealed that cancer survivors have lower levels of physical activity in the afternoon and early evening. This finding can help to personalize physical activity advice more adequately for these patients.
