Special Issue "Sedentary Behaviour Interventions for Office Workers and Students"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Public Health Statistics and Risk Assessment".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2021).
Sedentary office workers struggle with opportunities to move throughout much of their work day. The inactivity has been implicated in the increase of obesity and with it the increase in many of its comorbidities, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. The impact on our overall workforce has grown to more than two-thirds of our workers, and now includes nearly a quarter of office workers who have primary offices in either their homes, vehicles, or shared spaces. In order to create activity permissive work environments, employers and employees are searching for evidence-based programs, tools, software, training, furnishings, layouts, and spaces that can encourage movement throughout the day. This Special Issue will focus on interventions such as these that have been tested to determine their efficacy at reducing sedentary behaviour and/or improving health outcomes for adults or students. Authors are encouraged to submit original research on this emerging field of study.
