The Supportive Schoolbag
Designing a range of backpacks for school students is no simple task. Children and teenagers experience major, sporadic periods of growth, and boys and girls grow in different ways. Yet, a single school bag is expected to last a student for many years.
The solution we devised to this problem was one based on flexibility. Awarded a prestigious Australian Design Mark, our SAS Academic® school bags incorporate a built-in, fully adjustable 1-2-3 harness system. This can be altered as the child grows, ensuring the bag is always positioned correctly and distributes weight through the hips. There are also specific design features to suit the needs of boys and girls.
Endorsed by the Chiropractic and Osteopathic College of Australia (COCA), SAS Academic® is a prime example of how design can be used to solve a real-world problem.
