    The evaluation of cancer patients’ recovery is still under the big subjectivity of physicians. Many different systems have been successfully implemented for physical activity evaluation, nonetheless there is still a big leap into Performance Status evaluation with ECOG and Karnofsky’s Performance Status scores. An automatic system for data recovering based on Android smartphone and wearables has been developed. A gamification implementation has been designed for increasing patients’ motivation in their recovery. Furthermore, novel and without-precedent algorithms for Performance Status (PS) and Physical Activity (PA) assessment have been developed to help oncologists in their diagnoses.
