The World Health Organization recommends a minimum of 150 minutes per week of moderate activity as a minimum for a healthy daily routine. The average employee in Austria works on 5 days a week and covers the distance from his place of residence to his place of work twice. This distance can be actively traveled (e.g., bicycle) or passively (e.g., car).
Due to a moderate physical activity (intensity 4-6 METs, corresponding to 4-6 times resting energy conversion) of 15 minutes in one direction, only the active minimum requirement for everyday activity would be achieved by active mobility to and from the workplace.
2: 1 randomized controlled trial (intervention group: control group)
Motivation of the employees by health care professionals of a sample company (Salzburger Landeskrankenanstalten AG, SALK) to use the public transport as well as the bicycle or footpath on the way from and to the workplace.
Intervention A: Change from car to bicycle for at least 50% of the routes, n = 20-25 Employees who have previously traveled exclusively by car and are living within a radius of ≤10 kilometers from the workplace are motivated by the GVPs to switch to a bicycle. In the case of appropriate proximity, employees can travel the entire path without motorized mobility. The greatest health benefit is to be expected by largely dispensing with motorized mobility at work. In the case of bad weather, cold or similar obstacles, a public transport or car can be used occasionally and exceptionally.
Intervention B: Exit from public transport one or more stations earlier or enter one or more station later, n = 20-25 By extending the path to and from a stop, which is to be actively pursued, a health effect is expected. In the context of this intervention, the availability of time tickets will provide incentives for switching from car to public transport. In addition, the employees are motivated to use the next stop in order to extend the active distance. Access routes can also be covered on foot.
Control group: Maintaining the mobility as before n = 20-25
Before and after the intervention phase of 1 year (to take into account seasonal effects or fluctuations), parameters relevant to health are collected. Finally, the results of the initial examination are compared with those of the final examination in order to examine the effects of healthy mobility on the workplace on cardiovascular risk profile, everyday activity, physical performance, quality of life, mobility behavior, body composition.
The aim of this project is to generate data on the health effects of a healthy mobility.
