Tour de office? New research findings on mini-bike for sedentary workers

Continuing the theme of creative strategies to overcome sedentary behaviour, this month’s  BJSM includes Lucas Carr et. al’s article: “Feasibility of a portable pedal exercise machine for reducing sedentary time in the workplace.”

Interesting to consider the strategy of bringing an exercise machine directly to the feet of office workers who don’t make time to leave the office for physical activity. Is this a potentially brilliant approach to increasing physical activity? Please leave your thoughts in the comment section below or write us an email.

Also, The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation published highlights of the study in their recent newspaper article: Pedal for Health While in Office Chair
