To prevent injury when using a backpack

Monday, 12 July 2010

Written by : DoctorNDTV Team

To prevent injury when using a backpack, following tips can be considered:

  • Pack light. The backpack should never weigh more than 10 to 20 percent of the student's body weight.
  • Always use both shoulder straps. Slingling a backpack over one shoulder can strain muscles. Wearing a backpack on one shoulder may increase curvature of the spine.
  • Organise the backpack to use all of its compartments. Pack heavier items closest to the centre of the back.
  • Use a rolling backpack. This type of backpack may be a good choice for students who must tote a heavy load. Remember that rolling backpacks still must be carried upstairs. They may be difficult to roll in snow.
