Table 2 Performed training session frequency, intensity, and time, adherence, and changes in physical fitness of the physical exercise training module of the tele-prehabilitation program

From: Feasibility of a tele-prehabilitation program in high-risk patients with colon or rectal cancer undergoing elective surgery: a feasibility study

Participant ID Frequency Intensity Time Treatment initiation intervals Change in physical fitness between pre- (T0) and post-prehabilitation (T1) assessment
Number of sessions (% of prescribed) Number of sessions with adequate intensity, number (%) Combined exercise duration of all sessions, minutes (% of prescribed) Time from endoscopy to start prehabilitation (days) Time from start prehabilitation to surgery (days) Time to exhaustion on the constant work rate test (s) Repetitions on the 30-s chair-stand test (number) 4-m gait speed test (m/s)
