The most optimal exercise plan for men with prostate cancer (PC) receiving androgen deprivation therapy needs to be identified. We plan to investigate a 12-week home-based health programme (exergaming) on physical function, fatigue and metabolic parameters in this group. In addition, our study will explore the satisfaction and experience with the health game programme. To the best of our knowledge this is the first RCT study to investigate the effect of a home based health game programme on PC patients. No statistical analysis have been made thus far because inclusion is ongoing, however baseline observations show that most of the participants fulfil the criteria for being diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. Finally this study will assess the safety and efficacy of a novel exergaming modality for PC patients and the results are expected to influence recommendations on exercise given to this patient group.
