Thijs Eijsvogels obtained the Senior E-dekker grant (355 keuro) of the Dutch Heart Foundation. This competitive grant allows Thijs to start his own research group and to conduct the SIT LESS study (Sitting Interruption Treatment as a noveL eHealth Secondary prevention Strategy).

The project introduces a novel strategy to improve cardiovascular health in CVD patients, via reductions in sitting time as this type of sedentary behaviour is highly prevalent and is strongly associated with adverse health outcomes. For this purpose, physiological and epidemiological studies will be performed to develop a tailored program to the needs of CVD patients. Subsequently, a randomized clinical trial will be conducted to evaluate the short- and long-term health benefits of the integration of SIT LESS in existing cardiac rehab programs.
