Abstract

Nowadays, at work, many people spend more than half of their entire day working in a sitting position. Maintaining this position for a long period of time is a risk factor for health. The results of various studies have shown associations between maintaining a prolonged sitting position with morbidity due to chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, etc. And, as we have already mentioned in the first part of this study, dental technicians are part of this category of staff, who carry out most of their specific activity, in a sitting position.
