Leg, Muscle, and Knee Safety with Al Brown
Episode #38 | Published February 1, 2021
Studies show that our work has shifted from a 50/50 balance between sedentary and active work to 80% sedentary and 20% active. Overall that shift has led to a negative effect on our general health and in particular, our knees. Our knees can play a big part in workplace safety as they form a critical link in our kinetic chain, connecting us to the ground and allowing freedom to move. They can be affected by numerous factors such as the work environment, life habits, and even genetics. Unfortunately, our trend toward a more sedentary work/life balance can put us at even greater risk of dysfunction.
