Stair Instead of Elevator Use at Work: Cardiovascular Primary Preventive Effects on Hospital Employees.
Not Provided

This is an intervention study which evaluates the cardiovascular primary preventive effects of using stairs instead of elevators at the worksite during a 12-weeks period. We hypothesize that stair-climbing during working hours can meet the daily amount of physical activity recommended by current public health guidelines.
