Experimental: Nutritional telemonitoring
Nutritional telemonitoring including self-measurements of body weight, nutritional status, appetite, diet quality and physical activity. Additionally, participants receive guidance on nutrition and physical activity by means of customized and general television messages and/or if necessary personal guidance by a nurse.
Other: Nutritional telemonitoring
Participants receive a weighing scale, pedometer and television channel in order to perform self-measurements and receive guidance on nutrition and physical activity. Nurses use a website in order to receive telemonitoring measurements and decide about proper follow-up. In case of risk of undernutrition, nurses provide personal advice to optimize nutritional status of the participant.
- Feasibility (qualitative outcome) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Qualitative outcome, measured using the process indicators acceptability, implementation, dose received, applicability. Data on these process indicators are collected using logbooks, semi-structured interviews, and questionnaires with items to be answered on a 5-point likert scale.
- Behavioural determinants [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Measured by a self-developed questionnaire with statements concerning nutrition and physical activity to be answered on a 5-point likert scale.
- Diet quality (DHD-index) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Measured by Dutch Healthy Diet index (DHD-index)
- Nutritional status (MNA) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Measured by Mini Nutritional Assessment
- Appetite (SNAQ) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Measured by Simplified Nutritional Appetite Questionnaire
- Body weight (kg) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Measured by weighing scale of the brand A&D, type UC-411PBT-C
- Physical functioning (SPPB) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Measured by Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB)
- Functional status (KATZ-15) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Measured by KATZ-15
- Quality of life (SF-36) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]Measured by Short-Form 36
