Sitting is the new smoking??

Hello! With all of this talk and research about sitting being the new smoking- is anyone taking precautions or being aware of how much we are sitting throughout the day? Does anyone stand for multiple patients a day?

Yes! As long as you are able to practice good ergonomics its not a bad idea. In hygiene school, one of my fellow students decided right then and there that she was going to practice standing hygiene. Every time I would walk by her operatory her patient was up in the air and she was standing. Here’s an article that explains the benefits of standing hygiene: http://www.rdhmag.com/articles/print/volume-31/issue-1/features/go-ahead-take-a-stand.html
