April 6, 2010 – The Back-T-Back carrying bag is designed to load on the spinal axis to improve and train good posture, body mechanics and balance while reducing pain and providing ease and security in carrying every day items.
Designed by a physical therapist, BackTpack is a revolutionary carrying system that, through everyday carrying habits, uses the vertical force of gravity for training proper alignment of the skeleton in the way the body was designed to function.
It allows you to stand, walk, and sit with your spine and head tall and your shoulders relaxed in a healthy "T" posture. These postural habits will contribute to lifelong healthy movement, and a strong skeleton.
Common backpacks require you to lean or pull forward to compensate for the load on the back. This posture has led to countless back, neck and shoulder problems. Since the load of the BackTpack is balanced and aligned with your natural axis, no compensation is necessary. The body’s response is only to strengthen a tall posture and the load feels much lighter to the wearer.
Back-T-Pack features include a ‘sit-strap’ that allows the wearer to sit with the bag on while the load transfers off the shoulders and spine, a headphone port for ease in the use of auditory equipment, a water bottle holder and multiple compartments on both sides.
An optional hip-loading accessory is available for those who should not have a spinal loading system.
In 2009, the Back-T-Pack carrying system achieved the Family Choice Awards, a Gold Award from the Family Review Center and was featured in a number of family and parenting magazines as a product of choice for safe load carrying.
