Prompts to Disrupt Sitting Time and Increase Physical Activity at Work, 2011–2012
During enrollment, 90 people were assessed for eligibility; 12 people were excluded because they did not meet inclusion criteria; no one declined to participate. During assignment, 78 people were randomized to the Stand group or the Step group. Of the 38 people assigned to the Stand group, 1 person dropped out and 37 people participated. Of the 40 people assigned to the Step group, 2 people dropped out and 38 people participated. Data on 29 people from the Stand group were analyzed; data on 7 people were excluded because they did not wear the monitor for at least 6 hours/day for 3 days during both baseline and intervention weeks (n = 4) or because their equipment malfunctioned (n = 3). Data on 31 people in Step Group were analyzed; data on 6 people were excluded because they did not wear the monitor for at least 6 hours/day for 3 days during both baseline and intervention weeks (n = 3) or because their equipment malfunctioned (n = 3).
