Trudging backpacks around improperly could cause a
lifetime of back pain.

The US Consumer Products Safety Commission estimates that 6,512 ER visits each year are a result of book bag injuries. The issue has become so widespread that some states have passed legislation to reduce the weight of students backpacks.

Backpacks should weigh less than 10% of the wearer’s body weight

Choose a backpack made with lightweight materials and wide shoulder straps

Use both chest straps to distribute weight evenly

Place heavier books closer to the body
