How to Choose the Ideal Backpack for School?

  • Lumbar problems and even back malformations can be caused by excessive in the smaller weights, even more when we talk about the texture of children school backpacks that are not always suitable for the age.

The market of the backpacks has become increasingly diverse. Colors, sizes and options as varied characteristics, which often may cloud over the right to the moment of the purchase decision, especially when these are for our children.

The main problem of a bad choice is the alteration of the normal stance, says Alvaro Quiroz, Professor at the school of pedagogy in physical education from the University of the Pacific and a master’s in exercise physiology. “This could generate from small pains at the level of the neck or the lower part of the column, even in more extreme situations, important muscle decompensation and/or alterations at the level of the spine such as e.g. scoliosis,” he says.

Then what weight, model and use suitable for each school stage? The first tip is to pay attention on the percentage of the weight of the backpack in relation to the child. http://www.allsetbackpacks.com/2017/how-to-choose-a-good-backpack-for-school/ This site can give you more information of backpack.

“In general, and not only for the children, the weight of the backpack should corresponds approximately to 10% of the body weight of the person who uses it.” I.e., if a child weighs 50 kilos, the backpack that uses should weigh approximately about 5 kilos,”says specialist.

For the pre-school stage, Álvaro Quiroz says that “in general it is recommended that children use backpacks with shoulder straps, i.e. that load on his back, because they better distributed weight, provided we don’t overload it and use both straps”.

In terms of size, the expert indicates that this should not be higher than the trunk of the child. “In addition, when in use, it must be at the center of the back and not below the waist”, are required.

It is also recommended to address the subject of the shoulder straps. “These should be wide and comfortable material. And is not recommended at any age the use of straps, they may decrease the blood flow to the arm or hands and cause drowsiness when used for a long time,”he added.

The Professor of the University of the Pacific, also makes a range of backpacks with wheels. “The use of backpacks that crawl like a cart, and are widely used today, may be useful if we respect the maximum weight according to the texture of the children (also approximately 10% of body weight),” says.

The expert added that “the use of wheeled backpacks effectively helps to avoid overloading the neck and the lower part of the column, but consider that backpacks with one hand as you drag is generated a unilateral overload on the back. “To avoid this, backpacks should be pushed and not dragged, and also used both hands”.

In relation to the ideal child’s basic backpack, Professor Quiroz also recommended those with braces and if possible showing a stand or belt at waist level.

 ” “These children are much more active and the use of wheeled backpacks can cause accidents associated with the transfer, such as bumping a teammate or lose your balance on a ladder”, warns.

For secondary and university stage, the expert of the University of the Pacific says that given the requirements of students, backpacks must be adapted to these circumstances. “In young people, and especially among university students, the case that move in their backpack personal computers and books is given, it is therefore the best option is always a backpack strap,” she says.

Alvaro Quiroz also recommended that have wide straps, padded and comfortable material, and where possible with a lumbar support system. “They should introduce magazines to distribute the weight and always the heaviest thing should be close to your body.” Therefore, when computers are moved the ideal is that they are closer to the back”, he says.

On the use of bags and backpacks with a single shoulder strap, the specialist of the University of the Pacific indicates that you must avoid them. “This causes poor posture and long term could cause a muscle imbalance or alteration in the alignment of the column. Now, if you choose this type of bags, the best is to have the habit of alternating shoulder”ends.
