BackTpack for Scoliosis, Even With Brace
Backpacks for my daughter since starting to wear her brace have been difficult… we tried a few different options and none were really great… until now! This crazy backpack solves all of the issues she has had, AND is healthier for her back! It applies the load to the vertical axis of the body, eliminates… posture distortion, and the load is easier to carry! I thought she wouldn’t want to try it because it looks different, but she loves it! It was designed by a PT in our group, Marilyn Miller von Foerster. She was so helpful in making sure we got the right model for Kylie. Very excited about this find!!! Read more “BackTpack for Scoliosis, Even With Brace”
What a Difference with BackTpack!
After I had been wearing my BackTpack for several months, I tried on my old conventional backpack to see if I’d feel a difference…and did I ever! I never realized how uncomfortable a regular backpack is until I had the BackTpack.
Travel Without Pain
I love my BackTpack. I travel a lot. Now without back pain.
Reduced Pain for Field Scientist
BEFORE: After seeing a colleague’s BackTpack, I decided I had to get one for myself. But which one? I could use one for my teaching work. but I also thought it would work well for my work as a field naturalist who carries audio field recording gear, photography gear, and other things necessary for field… work. I opted to try one for field gear first, and it is going to serve me well. I’m 5’3+1/2, small-boned and slender woman. I got the medium/large (standard size) for the field work and will probably get the slightly smaller one for more urban applications. The construction is very good, it looks great, and I am quite impressed with how it supports good body mechanics. AFTER: My new BackTpack keeps my gear evenly distributed and better balanced. It therefore allows me to keep my back straighter, reducing the neck tension and pain that I used to accept as inevitable. I especially love the ease with which I can access all of my gear, and my rather heavy camera now resides in the BackTpack instead of in a case strapped around my waist. There’s plenty of room for lenses as well as my field recording equipment and other supplies.Very comfortable, convenient, and well-made (5 out of 5 stars) Read more “Reduced Pain for Field Scientist”
BackTpack Important for Schoolchildren Worldwide
We received the bags, it for my children (9 and 11 years old) and they love it as it really help eliminated the burden of carrying heavy school books. The same weight of books they were carrying in their normal backpack, they feel much lighter in this backtpack. I have been looking for a proper… ergonomic backpack on the internet and came across your website, its really an interesting design and thoughtful. Letting the child carrying over weight school bag should be banned by Ministry of Education, the school as an educational institute must responsible and taking this issue seriously as it is harmful for physical and mental health of the child. However we were living in 3 countries (Thailand, South Africa, and Jordan), non of the school we ever heard they are concerning of this issue. Also the custom tax for these bags are too high as we paid JOD 140 (USD197) for this shipment, it is really a ridiculous policy (brainless). Btw – thank you for making such a wonderful product. It should win a prize and adopted in all good schools. Read more “BackTpack Important for Schoolchildren Worldwide”
BackTpack Allows Activity While Being Safe and Convenient
This product is amazing! I have been looking for something like this since I became a white cane user over four years ago. As a blind/visually impaired person, our hands are already occupied with our guide dog and/or white cane. We have to bend a lot to care for our dogs who are our eyes… as well as use our hands to “see” things. A purse or traditional backpacks are such a hazard for your back and at greater risk of theft. They are also a nuisance, sliding off your shoulder when you bend over. To be able to carry all you need at your sides and bend and stretch in active ways while being safe and convenient is priceless. Carrying toys, treats, and water for my dog…while also carrying my wallet, iPad, iPhone, keys, spare hat/shades and water for me…no longer a hassle with BackTpack. I am truly amazed and thrilled with this product. Read more “BackTpack Allows Activity While Being Safe and Convenient”
Occupational Therapy Student Prefers BackTpack
I tried out the BackTpack today at the OTAC conference and loved it!! So comfy and felt like I wasn’t carrying anything! What a brilliant alternative to my current backpack that hurts me every day!”
European Traveler Loves BackTpack’s “Comfort and Luxury”
We are back from Copenhagen where we spent Christmas and New Years. I used this pack daily for 10 days and carried each day a large bottle of water in each side plus what ever else I needed for the day. I didn’t take off the pack at all for at least 8 hours each… day. You can see that I was bundled up with 5 layers of clothing because the temp was about 25F with the wind chill running about 17F. I could sit easily without removing the pack. I was amazed at the ease of carrying a moderate “load” one would expect to have on vacation. I can assure you that you will never have a customer any happier with your product than I am. It was wonderful not to have to take a day pack off every time I sat down. We rode city busses, subways and commuter trains hundreds of times and it was great to have the comfort and luxury of leaving the BackTpack on. Thanks again for a great product. Bravo BackTpack.

BackTpack Great for Medical School
I don’t get any kickbacks from BackTpack, but their bags – I found one in my school bookstore and then bought another online – were my go-to in medical school. I was able to keep lunch, snack and personal items (purse) on one side, and my school documents, computer, and some medical supplies on the… other. I moved easily from my bike to my classroom, or to a bus.
I recommend this to my patients who are students. Read more “BackTpack Great for Medical School”
BackTpack for Bulged Disks, Arthritis, and Fibromyalgia
I have used a BackTpack everyday for several years now. It’s worn out now and I’ve just ordered a new one. I had two bulged disks and arthritis in my spine AND fibromyalgia (and serious hand issues so I can’t use a rolling backpack); the BackTpack has been a big factor in allowing me the… mobility to deal with graduate school. I’m now in the process of getting a PhD in musicology (music history and literature). Carrying large format books and musical scores around a large campus is a daily part of life. With a conventional backpack, my arms and hands would go numb from my thoracic outlets being squeezed, and my back would be in incredible pain. I have absolutely no problems with the BackTpack. Thanks for such an innovative product! Read more “BackTpack for Bulged Disks, Arthritis, and Fibromyalgia”
