Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

This single group pre- and posttest study explored the impact of OT intervention on sedentary behavior among office workers. Statistically significant improvement was noted for energy and fatigue, emotional well-being, subjective sleep, and calories burned (p < 0.05). OT practitioners can utilize holistic ergonomic interventions and client-centered goals to reduce sedentary behavior and improve occupational performance among office workers.
