Abstract

Reducing Sedentary Behaviour after hospitalization starts with reducing sedentary behaviour whilst in hospital. Although we have eradicated immobilisation as a therapeutic tool due to its potent detrimental effects, it is still in systemic use within health care systems and hospitals. Evidence shows that when in hospital patients spend most of their time sedentary. In this editorial, we explore the determinants of, and a system based approach to, reducing sedentary behaviour in health care.
