Tell HGV drivers they lead a sedentary lifestyle and they won’t be amused – driving is tiring work. From the medical point of view, though, long hours sitting in a cab pose many of the same risks as sedentary office-based roles, as some additional risks too. Old fashioned advice, such as to go jogging at weekends and to eat well, are not only difficult to keep up in today’s world, but some of the supposed benefits have actually been discredited. Jogging could put a strain on your heart, and the definition of what is or isn’t healthy eating changes every few months. When it comes to sound health advice, HGV drivers are left wondering where to turn. Help is available, in the form of new devices and phone apps designed to keep us better in touch with the state of our health and to help us improve it.
