WHY

Regular and supervised exercise therapy is crucial for cancer patients during the entire cancer care continuum and beyond. Engaging in consistent muscle-building combats many of the side effects associated with various cancer therapies as well as many tumor-related symptoms. It not only optimizes the efficacy of the treatments but is also proven to significantly enhance prognoses as well as overall survival rates.

The importance of regular exercise for cancer patients – especially strength training – cannot be overstated. It helps in managing fatigue as well as inflammation, it improves physical function, and reduces pain, anxiety and depression – just to name a few. Muscle-building specifically addresses the catastrophic loss of muscle mass and strength that many patients experience, which leads to a loss in function and oftentimes death. By maintaining or even increasing muscle mass and improving strength, patients can better withstand the rigors of cancer therapies, recover more quickly, and maintain a higher quality of life.

Therefore, exercise therapy for cancer – also coined exercise oncology – is a vital element of integrative oncology.

The unfortunate reality: Despite strong evidence, there is a significant care gap. Most patients do not have access to exercise therapy, and they lack the necessary tools to help themselves.

HOW & WHAT

Key elements for success are workout structure, personalization, supervision, guidance, regularity, regular adaptation, and patient empowerment.

Our innovative smart textile wearable – a smart shirt – in combination with our intuitive app, provides personalized and supervised exercise that closely mimics the care offered by human therapists and can even surpass it. Our cutting-edge wearable is equipped with integrated sensors and actuators, strategically placed across the torso. The sensors track movement patterns, while the actuators generate targeted vibrations to tap into the mind-muscle connection, to help patients maintain proper form, and much more.

Built on the latest sports science research, we take a holistic approach.

AI-driven workout planning considers the specific cancer type, treatment, fitness level, and preferences. Progress tracking as well as fatigue and overreach detection during add to the highly tailored user experience. Designed not only to work, but also to be a joyful experience.

This detailed monitoring and feedback aim to replicate the experience of having a personal therapist, addressing the current shortage of trained professionals in the field.

We empower cancer patients to take an active role in their therapy as well as recovery.

Benefits

Higher quality of life

Regular strength training dramatically enhances quality of life by boosting energy levels, improving physical and mental health as well as sleep and by reducing severe side effects.

Better outcomes

Engaging in strength training during cancer treatment leads to better outcomes by building or maintaining muscle, reducing inflammation, boosting hormone production, increasing blood flow, and more.

Patient empowerment

panthr is all about empowering patients to take control of their well-being and actively engage in their therapy by removing obstacles, providing support and bringing them autonomy.

Easy adherence

panthr makes adherence to patient guidelines effortless. It motivates patients to consistently follow their exercise routine. It brings accountability and support as well as education.

Reduced costs

Exercising during and after cancer significantly reduces direct and indirect patient costs for all sides – patients, payers and society.
