Excessive sedentary time is detrimentally linked to obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and premature mortality. Studies have been investigating the use of activity‐permissive workstations to reduce sedentary time in office workers, a highly sedentary target group. This review systematically summarizes the evidence for activity‐permissive workstations on sedentary time, health‐risk biomarkers, work performance and feasibility indicators in office workplaces. In July 2013, a… Expand

InterventionDevice
A systematic review and meta‐analysis of workplace intervention strategies to reduce sedentary time in white‐collar workers
TLDR
This study found consistent evidence for intervention effectiveness in reducing workplace sitting, particularly for multi‐component and environmental strategies and methodologically rigorous studies using standardized and objectively determined outcomes are warranted. Expand
Effects of sedentary behaviour interventions on biomarkers of cardiometabolic risk in adults: systematic review with meta-analyses
TLDR
Evidence of effectiveness for improving some cardiometabolic risk biomarkers to a small degree is found from free living interventions targeting reductions in sedentary behaviour alone or combined with increases in physical activity. Expand
The effects of cycle and treadmill desks on work performance and cognitive function in sedentary workers: A review and meta-analysis.
BACKGROUND Sedentary behavior has been recognized as an important risk factor in the development of several chronic diseases. Active workstations have been proposed as an effective countermeasure.Expand
Interventions with potential to reduce sedentary time in adults: systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
There was evidence that it is possible to intervene to reduce SB in adults and Lifestyle and SB only interventions may be promising approaches. Expand
The effectiveness of sedentary behaviour interventions on sitting time and screen time in children and adults: an umbrella review of systematic reviews
TLDR
The current systematic reviews and meta-analyses supported sedentary behaviour interventions for reducing occupational sitting time in particular, with small changes seen in screen time in children and adolescents. Expand
The Effectiveness of Sedentary Behaviour Reduction Workplace Interventions on Cardiometabolic Risk Markers: A Systematic Review
TLDR
The aims of this work were to systematically review the effects of workplace sedentary behaviour reduction interventions on cardiometabolic risk markers and identify the active behaviour change techniques by which these interventions work and to assess the relative effectiveness of BCTs. Expand
Sedentary Behavior and Musculoskeletal Discomfort Are Reduced When Office Workers Trial an Activity-Based Work Environment
TLDR
ABW environment appears to reduce self-reported sedentary behavior and low back pain and increase standing time, which is similar to other activity-based work environments. Expand

Objectives: This review updates evidence of previous reviews on interventions that target reducing sedentary behaviour among 18- to 69-year-old working aged adults. Methods: A literature search ofExpand
Is the time right for quantitative public health guidelines on sitting? A narrative review of sedentary behaviour research paradigms and findings
TLDR
The development of quantitative SB guidance, using an underdeveloped evidence base, is premature; any further recommendations for sedentary behaviour require development of the evidence base and refinement of the research paradigms used in the field. Expand
Effectiveness of interventions aiming at reducing sedentary behaviour in a non-surgical population with overweight or obesity: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Interventions aiming to effectively reduce objectively-measured sedentary behaviour need to specifically include an active component, suggests this novel systematic review and meta-analyses. Expand

Participatory Workplace Interventions Can Reduce Sedentary Time for Office Workers—A Randomised Controlled Trial
TLDR
This study explored novel ways to modify work practices to reduce occupational sedentary behaviour by using a variety of interventions and found participatory workplace interventions can reduce sedentary time, increase the frequency of breaks and improve light activity and MVPA of office workers. Expand
Sedentary time in adults and the association with diabetes, cardiovascular disease and death: systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Sedentary time is associated with an increased risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cardiovascular and all-cause mortality; the strength of the association is most consistent for diabetes. Expand
The contribution of office work to sedentary behaviour associated risk
TLDR
Office work is characterised by sustained sedentary time and contributes significantly to overall sedentary exposure of office workers. Expand
Sedentary time and cardio-metabolic biomarkers in US adults: NHANES 2003-06.
TLDR
These are the first population-representative findings on the deleterious associations of prolonged sedentary time with cardio-metabolic and inflammatory biomarkers and suggest that clinical communications and preventive health messages on reducing and breaking up sedentaryTime may be beneficial for cardiovascular disease risk. Expand
Occupational sitting and health risks: a systematic review.
TLDR
Limited evidence was found to support a positive relationship between occupational sitting and health risks, and the heterogeneity of study designs, measures, and findings makes it difficult to draw definitive conclusions at this time. Expand

Feasibility of a portable pedal exercise machine for reducing sedentary time in the workplace
TLDR
It is suggested that this pedal machine may be a feasible tool for reducing sedentary time while at work and hold public health significance due to the growing number of sedentary jobs in the USA and the potential of the device for use in large-scale worksite health programmes. Expand
Sedentary behaviors and subsequent health outcomes in adults a systematic review of longitudinal studies, 1996-2011.
TLDR
Findings indicate a consistent relationship of self-reported sedentary behavior with mortality and with weight gain from childhood to the adult years, however, findings were mixed for associations with disease incidence, weight gain during adulthood, and cardiometabolic risk. Expand
Reducing office workers’ sitting time: rationale and study design for the Stand Up Victoria cluster randomized trial
TLDR
The Stand Up Victoria study aims to determine whether a 3-month multi-component intervention in the office setting reduces workplace sitting, particularly prolonged, unbroken sitting time, and results in improvements in cardio-metabolic biomarkers and work-related outcomes, compared to usual practice.
