Mansoubi M, Pearson N, Biddle SJH, Clemes SA. Using sit-to-stand workstations in offices: Is there a compensation effect? Med Sci Sports Exerc. 2016;48(4):720-5.
Sit-to-stand workstations are becoming common in modern offices and are increasingly being implemented in sedentary behavior interventions. The purpose of this study was to examine whether the introduction of such a workstation among office workers leads to reductions in sitting during working hours, and whether office workers compensate for any reduction in sitting at work by increasing sedentary time and decreasing physical activity (PA) outside work.
