Background: Positive effects of sportive activities and exercise on tumor diseases have been proven and are frequently addressed in contemporary literature. Several findings provide evidence for the idea of physical activity being significant during in-patient treatment and rehabilitation. Sportive activity has an impact on a physical, psychological, social and educational level. Therapeutic exercise measures as a side treatment, however, are not yet to be considered an inherent part of cancer treatment processes. Objectives: The present study examined the feasibility of a six-week Nordic-Walking practice programme of tumor patients undergoing chemotherapy. The aim was to observe whether everyday activity and physical working capacity can be increased due to training interventions. Method: The experimental examination comprised two measures of spiroergometry, both of which measured the physical working capacity before (t1) and after (t2) the intervention. The subsequent training intervention in the form of a Nordic- Walking practice consisted of three training sessions per week and lasted over six weeks. Everyday activity was measured by using a pedometer and its results were stored in a training journal. After each training session, a questionnaire was filled out by participants for evaluation of the current training session and at t2 another questionnaire was completed to evaluate general satisfaction of the sports program. Results: The analysis could not reveal any significant results. There are tendencies indicating that physical working capacity and everyday activity can be increased.Also, the intervention programme has been proved to be well feasible. Conclusions: This work supports previous findings in literature and indicates that sports- and exercise therapies within the oncological rehabilitation field are of absolute necessity. Nordic-Walking qualifies to be a reliable sport for future training interventions.
