Young boy getting onto a school bus with BackTpack

My son was having difficulty managing his backpack, and started complaining of back and shoulder pain after school. We tried the BackTpack and he felt pain-free instantly. He reports that the BackTpack “doesn’t hurt” and its design allows him to automatically turn on his posture muscles and stand straighter when he is waiting for the

BackTpack Improves Balance on Uneven and Icy Surfaces

I received my BackTpack by mail yesterday. I loaded it with library books this morning and took off over very uneven, icy trails across about 10 blocks of parkland to my local library. Balance is superb. It is great to be able to load and unload without removing the harness and bags. It will be

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

My daughter has been having back problems for several years from carrying her standard backpack to school. Her pain had escalated to the point that we were making weekly visits to the chiropractor and she was taking nightly pain medication so she could sleep. I found the BackTpack and decided to try it.

BackTpack Helps Student’s Back, Neck and Shoulders after Accident

Over the past 4 years I was in a couple of car accidents in which I was rear ended while at a full stop. Because of this, I have major issues with my neck and lower back. As a result, I haven’t been able to handle any type of bag that I try to carry.

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.

BackTpack Helps Blind Mom/Student and Family

I love BackTpack so much! I have had my first one for six years, and after all the abuse it has taken, it was time to buy a new one. I ordered it last week, and it came very quickly. My husband and oldest son also own BackTpacks and they have been great as we

A Help for Scoliosis

Ball State Theatre and Dance students in the hall all wearing BackTpack

I suffer from mild scoliosis, and years of wearing conventional backpacks and shoulder/tote bags continued to move my body in this ill direction. The BackTpack is groundbreaking because it doesn’t cause alignment problems to worsen like an average bag would. It frees your shoulders, neck, and spine in a way no other bag can!

WOU Dance Professor Endorses BackTpack for Dancers Posture and Own Children’s Safety

School children heading to school with comfort and safety using BackTpack

Dancers are notorious for carrying around bulky dance bags slung over one shoulder causing them to lean to one side. Students often load up their traditional backpacks to such an extent that they must lean forward in order to counterbalance the heavy load of books on their backs. Both of these situations cause poor alignment
