Doel studies:

  1. Identify and assemble measurement instruments measuring activity limitations and participation restrictions on the one hand, the activity level and pattern of activity on the other and to evaluate their psychometric properties.
  2. Scientific research has already confirmed that CFS patients experience a lower activity level than healthy individuals, but, there is little information available about differences in activity level between CFS patients. It is unclear whether significant discrepancies can be observed between the subjectively experienced and objectively measured activity level. Seen as the most therapy strategies require the patient to be able to correctly judge his own activity level, this information is necessary for healthcare professionals to implement in their therapy program. Evaluating possible discrepancies between the subjectively experienced and objectively measured activity level will therefore be the next point of interest of this thesis.
