Risk Factors for Teachers

Prolonged standing at work is believed to be a critical risk factor for Chronic Venous Disease (CVD). Of the roughly 3.5 million public school teachers in the U.S., 76% are female, and research shows that women are more susceptible to developing CVD due to hormonal changes throughout their lives. Women also tend to wear heels and sit cross-legged, increasing the risk of CVD even further.

People working in a standing posture are at a significantly greater risk for CVD than those working in a prolonged sitting posture
