Back to school - is your child suffering from Bad School Bag Syndrome?

A school bag with no supportive internal structure encourages children to compensate by carrying their bag incorrectly. They do this by hooking their thumbs under the shoulder straps, rounding their backs, contracting their chest muscles and tilting their bodies forward. Carrying badly designed school bags in this way over months and years puts your child at risk of back damage and lifelong posture distortion.
The TOTEM school bag range is designed to provide effective back support and utilises orthopaedic and ergonomic features. TOTEM Bags are also designed to be stylish and funky so your children will love wearing them.
Choosing the right school bag is a lot like buying new shoes. A good bag should fit properly and provide adequate support in those important formative years. Yet studies show that many children continue to suffer ‘bad bag syndrome’ which can lead to lifelong spine dysfunction and poor posture.
