It is still this time of year. With fresh pencils and new nice lunch boxes, a new backpack or at least a lighter backpack could also be in order!
Did you know that your child's impacts What size should have his backpack?
Children's backpacks should not exceed 10 to 15 % of their body weight . If your child weighs 50 pounds, he should have a bag of 5 to 8 pounds when he is full. The smaller your child, the smaller his bag.
The spine is made up of 33 bones which can be compressed abnormally if your child's backpack is too heavy or poorly worn. A dangerous or heavy backpack can create posture problems that persist even after the backpack is no longer worn.
Children's backpacks should be worn with the two straps to uniformly distribute the weight. Otherwise, this can cause neck and back pain for the wearer who must compensate for the weight of the bag and adjust his hips and shoulders unevenly.
When you choose a backpack, remember ...
Encourage your child to clean their backpack every night after school and repack it for the next day. In this way, they do not carry a heavy backpack with unnecessary objects.
Two straps are better than - The shoulder bags and the bags that force the weight on a shoulder can be more harmful than the bags with two straps.
Comfort is king - The padded straps are essential when choosing a backpack for school. The narrow or non -padded straps can sink into the shoulders and cut traffic.
