IOE 836 Seminar Series: Martijn Muller, PhD

Stand Up, Sit Less, Move More - An Update

Martijn Muller, PhD
"Stand Up, Sit Less, Move More - An Update"

Abstract: Inactivity during office hours is endemic among office workers. Prolonged periods of time are spent mostly seated behind the desk. This prolonged sitting is associated with significantly increased risks of morbidity and mortality. There is increasing awareness of the occupational health dangers of prolonged sitting and the need for interventions is being recognized. One approach to reduce sitting time is by performing deskwork while standing behind height-adjustable sit-stand desks. In this presentation I will review the literature on the health risks of sitting and the health benefits of standing. In addition, I will present some preliminary data from our own standing studies.
