New backpacks with a technology that makes you feel like you are carrying half the weight. AIRBAC™ is the only backpack designed to alleviate the pressure and stress on a persons upper and lower back caused by excessive weight. The patented air support system takes the weight off of the back by moving heavy contents into a more comfortable, back-friendly position, helping wearers feel like theyre carrying half of the weight. Offered in a wide variety of styles, AIRBAC™ was created for school-age children, college students, business travelers, outdoor enthusiasts and photographers.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, backpack injuries in kids aged five to 18 increased 6.5 percent between 2010 and 2011. And although the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons recommends backpacks weigh less than 10-15 percent of a persons body weight, realistically, consumers may not be able to control the weight of their necessities.
Using this insight, the makers of Airbac developed a proprietary air support system designed to redistribute the weight of backpack contents to keep the weight off the shoulders and back, helping reduce stress on the spine and to promote better posture.
Scientific studies conducted on AIRBAC by an independent lab revealed the product produced better weight distribution, spinal alignment and posture than that of a normal backpack.
Key Benefits Promotes Better Posture and Spinal Alignment.
People tend to bend forward or hunch to compensate for the extra weight in a regular backpack. The AIRBAC system, which evenly redistributes the weight across the back, allows the body to relax in an upright position, promoting better posture and proper spinal alignment.
Built-in Shock Absorbers.
Repetitive impact due to running or walking with a heavy backpack can cause increased stress on the lower back. To address this issue, AIRBAC technology offers the ability to absorb the impact a heavy bag may have on the spine, helping outdoor enthusiasts to exercise pain-free.
The patented air support system coupled with AIRBAC padded technology offers a secure home for valuable contents, protecting laptops, iPads and other important materials.
Adjustable for a Customized fit.
From children to adults and student-athletes to active outdoor enthusiasts, AIRBAC was designed to support the spinal health of all body types. The products padded shoulder straps and patented air support system adjust to meet a wide variety of body types.
