Choosing a School Bag
Posture problems and spinal pain in children and adolescents have the potential to lead to permanent spinal damage in later years. However, many of these issues can be prevented by following some simple steps when choosing, and wearing, a school bag.

Body Assist Posture Support
The Body Assist Posture Support is one of the most commonly recommended posture supports by physiotherapists. This light-weight support is designed to improve posture and reduce stress on the upper back and neck. It is particularly useful for patients who have poor posture or 'rounded shoulders', or, for patients who experience upper back or neck pain during positions of poor posture (e.g. sitting at a computer, driving, performing household duties such as cooking, ironing, vacuuming etc.).
