ERGO SCHOOL BACKPACK
Shop Ergonomic School Backpacks
For the longest time ever, the weight of school bags has been a bugbear among parents. Today, most children in Singapore seem to be carrying school bags that are packed to the brim - as if they’re lugging the weight of the world on their shoulders. Little ones trudging with their trunks bent forward to compensate for the heavy loads are common sights on the streets. This is certainly less than ideal.
As the incidence of backpack-related pain and injury continues to rise in Singapore, parents need to realise the deleterious effects an overweight school bag can pose for their children. Studies have shown that heavy backpacks can increase postural sway even in fit adults - not to mention, children. At a young age, our children's spine is still malleable. Beyond short-term pain and injuries on the back, neck and shoulders, lifelong posture distortion can result from an unhealthy school bag.
