-- AirBac Technologies, LLC, has launched a new line of backpacks that are sure to take the bag world by storm. Infused with AirBac’s patented Air Bladder technology, the majority of the weight of the bag is actually lifted off the upper back/shoulders of the wearer, where most pain is felt, and spreads it across the entirety of the back. With most of the weight sitting on the lower back, the wearer can handle a heavier bag without discomfort. AirBac carries bags (and other bag related products) designed uniquely for runners, hikers, techies and photographers, kids, adults, teens, gym-goers, and everyone else
SEMG tests (which detect areas of nerve disturbance)
clearly show a much lower level of stress on the spine and lower muscle activity due to the proper and equal weight distribution of the backpack.
Chiropractors and Orthopedic Surgeons alike will tell you that AirBac’s technology strongly promotes safety and guards against injury. Their unique patented design
is endorsed by several physicians who recommend AirBac over any other brand. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, approximately 21,000
backpack related injuries were treated at hospital emergency rooms, doctor’s offices and clinics in 2003. “The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons reports
that backpacks that are too heavy or worn incorrectly can injure a child’s muscles or joints.” -MMR Magazine Sept. 2005
