Reducing sedentary behaviour after hospitalization starts with reducing sedentary behaviour whilst in hospital. Although we have eradicated immobilisation as a therapeutic tool due to its potent detrimental effects, it is still in systemic use within health care systems and hospitals.

In this editorial, we explore the determinants of, and a system-based approach to, reducing sedentary behaviour in health care.
