ergobag combines the ergonomic design of innovative trekking backpacks with everything required of a school bag. Our backpacks are really comfortable as they distribute the weight from the shoulders to the more stable pelvic area. The ergobag grows all the way through elementary school – from about 1.10 m to 1.50 m.
This is how it works:
- 1 Stabilizing aluminum frame Just like how the spine stabilizes our back, so do the ergobag school bags. They have inbuilt stability in the shape of an aluminum frame which molds ergonomically to the curve of the spine for a perfect fit. The vertical stabilization effect also provides the optimum load distribution by shifting the weight of the content of the school bag to the stronger pelvic area.
- 2 Adjust to the length of the back The ergobag grows along with you! The shoulder straps are specially shaped to fit the growing anatomy and can be adjusted to the size of the body along the aluminum frame. So the ergobag grows all the way through elementary school – from about 1.10 m to 1.50 m.
- 3 Height-adjustable chest strap The chest strap stops the shoulder straps from falling off the shoulders. In addition, the shoulder straps are connected to the back at two points. So the bag doesn't rock from side to side when running.
- 4 Broad, padded waist belt The padded waist strap takes the strain off the shoulders and back by shifting the majority of the weight to the stronger pelvic area through the aluminum frame.
- 5 Breathable back-padding The breathable back-padding molds ergonomically to the curve of the spine and keeps the backpack close to the back.
- 6 Innovative drawstring The drawstring (on the ergobag pack) has the effect of keeping the contents of the bag as close to the body as possible, thereby reducing the leverage action on the back.

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.
