The Ergonomic Design of our school backpacks
ergobag combines the ergonomic design of innovative trekking backpacks with everything required for a school bag. Our backpack stars are really comfortable as they distribute the weight from the shoulders to the more stable pelvic area. Adjust the backpack to your individual height and let it "grow along" with you:
- ergobag up to a height of 1,50 m
- satch up to 1,80 m
- satch+ even up to 2 m
The Ergonomic Design at a glance
- Ergonomic aluminium rails stabilize the back padding
- Hip belt with padded flaps takes the strain off the back and
distributes the weight to the stable pelvic area
- Height-adjustable chest strap helps keeping the shoulder straps
on the shoulders
- Thanks to the height-adjustable back part the backpack grows along
- Breathable back-padding
- Innovative drawstring to compress the weight closer to the back. The satch by ergobag
achieves compression through side straps.

Ergonomics on the move
The study of ergonomics is part of a wide and diverse range of scientific disciplines and is of importance for both engineers and designers. It is understood as a link between us humans and technology, which is why it is preoccupied with the human body and is constantly seeking to discover how the body can become even more efficient in the long run. It starts with the very smallest members of society and carries on all the way up to the grandmas and granddads. The key factors in ergonomics are the effects on health of working at school, in a job or in the home and how pain and bad posture can be prevented.
The words "healthy" and "beautiful" are rarely said in the same breath, so another important aspect is designing products which are both ergonomic and visually appealing. Product design plays a key role in this respect.
A triple pack of ergonomics please!
- Physical ergonomics: This is concerned with the design of the workspace in a child's bedroom, for example, or in the office. The priority here is on avoiding bad posture and on improving certain movement patterns and working processes.
- Cognitive ergonomics: Things take a very technical direction in this field, which is mainly focused on software design.
- Organizational ergonomics: One example here is the quest for the perfect seating arrangement in a classroom.
The aim is to improve communication between the pupils but also with the teacher and therefore to make day-to-day life easier for children early on in their lives while they are still at school.
