More Information

Spartan's unique Primary PHYSIOPAK III backpack is the only primary school bag in Australia developed with and endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association.

An overloaded or incorrectly worn backpack can cause shoulder, neck and back pain in children, and become a major source of chronic pain.  Stress put on the spine can cause children to lean too far forward and experience distortion of the natural curve, rolling their shoulders and causing a more rounded upper back.

The national chair of the Australian Physiotherapy Association Paediatric group, Julianne Pegler, recommends a backpack that weighs no more than 10 percent of a child's body weight. 'The backpack must fit the child; don't buy a big pack to grow into,' she says.  'When sitting with the backpack on, the pack should not extend higher than the child's shoulders.'

Julianne also recommends the following features when choosing a backpack for your child:

-  Wide shoulder straps that are comfortable and sit well on the shoulders
-  waist strap to help transfer some of the load to the hips and pelvis
-  a padded back support that allows the backpack to fit 'snugly' on the back.

The APA endorses a number of carefully selected products.  Endorsements of any product or service only occurs after a set process involving rigorous scrutiny by relevant experts and detailed consideration of the following:  The quality of the product, its utility, the best interests of the physiotherapy patients and the general public, as well as the ethos of the company involved.m  As a result of this, you can be assured that the APA endorsed products provide excellent quality, value and security.

The APA recommends and endorses the Physiopak for school-aged children to use as their main method of carrying items to and from school.
