How To Choose Children’s Backpack

Tips for choosing the backpack for college and avoiding injury.

 

Back and/or shoulder pain, tingling in the arms, stooped posture are some of the problems that children may experience when the backpack is too heavy or they do not carry it correctly.

Parents can take steps to help children carry school bags the right way to avoid health problems.

Tips for choosing the best school backpack.

Correct size:

Never wider or longer than the child’s torso.

It should never protrude more than 10 cm below the child’s waist. The bottom of the backpack should rest on the curve of the lower back

Some backpacks have hip and chest belts that will help transfer some of the weight to the hips and torso.

Choose a backpack with wide, padded shoulder straps . The back of the backpack should also be padded. The shoulders and necks have many blood vessels and nerves that when pressed can cause pain and tingling in the neck, arms and hands.

Adjust the shoulder straps so that the backpack fits snugly on the back of the child. A backpack that hangs freely can cause the child to lean back and cause deformation in the muscles.

Multiple compartments to better distribute weight. This will allow organizing the backpack using all of its compartments.

Put heavier items near the center of the child ‘s back.

The backpack should never weigh more than 10 to 20% of the child’s body weight.

Both straps or straps should always be used. Hanging the one-shoulder backpack can cause the child to lean to one side, bend the spine and end up causing pain or discomfort.

Whenever possible, wheeled backpacks are best, especially if they carry a lot of weight.
