Increasing evidence is being found for the association of health risk factors with work-related physical inactivity. An increasing number of people are being exposed to this form of inactivity, and as a result, various interventions aimed at increasing physical activity during working hours are being developed. This study aims to investigate the...

BACKGROUND: Working in an office environment is characterised by physical inactivity and sedentary behaviour. This behaviour contributes to several health risks in the long run. Dynamic workstations which allow people to combine desk activities with physical activity, may contribute to prevention of these health risks. OBJECTIVE: A dynamic...

Lang zitten brengt gezondheidsrisico’s met zich. Dynamische werkplekken bieden de mogelijk-heid om kantoortaken bewegend uit te voeren en zo de risico’s voor kantoormedewerkers te verminderen. In een labstudie onderzochten we de korte-termijn-effecten op taakprestatie tijdens het werken op drie dynamische werkstations (loopband, fietsergometer...

Sedentary work entails health risks. Dynamic (or active) workstations, at which computer tasks can be combined with physical activity, may reduce the risks of sedentary behaviour. The aim of this study was to evaluate short term task performance while working on three dynamic workstations: a treadmill, an elliptical trainer, a bicycle ergometer...

Many contemporary work tasks, e.g. at an office workplace, are characterised by physical inactivity and by long periods of uninterrupted sitting. These characteristics increase the risk of several health problems, among others obesity, cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, cancer, musculoskeletal disorders of lower back, neck and shoulders, and...

Aan zittend werk kleven gezondheidsrisico’s. Dynamische werkplekken, werkplekken waaraan (computer)werkzaamheden gecombineerd worden met lichaamsbeweging, kunnen deze mogelijk verminderen. Wij evalueerden drie dynamische werkplekken: een loopband, een fietsergometer en een zittende elliptische trainer (ZET) bij negentien kantoormedewerkers met...

The aim of this research paper was to investigate the effect, both biomechanically and physiologically, of two dynamic workstations currently available on the commercial market. The dynamic workstations tested, namely the Treadmill Desk by LifeSpan and the LifeBalance Station by RightAngle, were compared to the more conventional seated and...

To gain insight into postures and movements during office work, 47 employees were observed during their daily work. The observations included: duration of trunk and leg postures, duration of different sitting positions on the seat, duration of different numbers of supported arms, number of minor trunk and leg motions, and number and duration of...
