The thrombosis associated with sitting for extended periods of time causing limb immobilisation is called "eThrombosis" (Beasley et al., 2003).
However, it has been shown that eThrombosis may be reduced if individuals take frequent breaks to do mobilisation, leg and foot exercises away from their desk, during a full day of sitting at work (Beasley et al, 2003).
