  Sitting Static standing Dynamic standing
Number of breaks (N) 0.7 ± 0.8 2.3 ± 2.2* 2.0 ± 2.2*

Overall movement (counts/min) 26.3 ± 12.5 43.7 ± 29.4$ 60.4 ± 31.8*#
Rate of total musculoskeletal discomfort development (mm/min) 0.02 ± 0.04 0.39 ± 0.53* 0.23 ± 0.37*#

  1. Note: Main effects are reported in the result section, however, post hoc tests are represented as follows: different from Sitting: *p < 0.05 ($ trend < 0.10); different from Static standing: #p < 0.05 ( trend < 0.10)
