AirPack Ergonomic Backpack
Our patented, ergonomic design combines wider shoulder straps and an inflatable lumbar cushion, which when properly positioned in the small of the back, creates a fulcrum to redistribute the weight from the shoulders to the hips, promoting a healthier upright standing posture, enhancing the body's natural ability to properly carry weight. Getting the right fit is very important to realize the AirPacks® unique ergonomic design benefit.
AirPacks, developed by orthopedic professionals are university-tested, clinically proven and are proportionally sized for students of all ages, with top and bottom adjustable shoulder straps that also automatically adjust from side-to-side to help maintain this correct ergonomic support even when using just one strap. See the AirPacks sizes and dimension below or product page description to choose which has the right proportional fit for you or the student in your life.

AirPack Backs – Protect Your Back with Inflatable Cushion
Ergonomic Backpack Helps Improve Posture, Comfort and Support
For many students lugging heavy books and laptops, a backpack too often means back pain.
Although physicians recommend that students carry a maximum of 15% of their body weight on their shoulders and backs, studies show younger students are hauling as much as 40%. For a 100-pound student, that’s a 40-pound load instead of the preferred 15-pound limit.
Gravity isn’t kind when you are carrying more than you should.
If you can’t lighten the load, at least consider a better backpack. The AirPack Backpack features an inflatable cushion that reduces back stress by up to 80%, lightening the effective load by 50%. The cushion acts as a fulcrum to redistribute weight from the shoulders to the hips.
The patented, ergonomic design of AirPack Backpacks improves posture, comfort and support. Orthopedic professionals developed AirPacks to relieve stress on growing spines.
An ordinary, too heavily loaded backpack can pull a child backward, causing the child to lean forward to compensate. The prolonged strain can result in shoulder, neck and back pain or injury.
Younger children, along with many girls, could be at greater risk for backpack problems because they are smaller than older children and girls may still carry similar-sized loads.
In addition to the air cushion, AirPack Backpacks help relieve back pain by using foam-cushioned shoulder straps and top and bottom straps that automatically adjust side-to-side to help maintain correct ergonomic support.
AirPacks are offered in three sizes to give a proportional fit to students of all ages. Another model, the mesh AirPacks, allows the contents of the backpack to be seen – as some schools require for security reasons -- without opening it.
AirPacks also feature numerous compartments to hold particular items, everything from books to water bottles. Compartments help spread a load across a backpack, one more way to reduce back pain and strain.
Like all Core Products, AirPack Backpacks offer noninvasive solutions to better health through quality items made primarily in the U.S.
