Ergonomics and functionality can be found in all JEVA’s schoolbags and backpacks
Long experience of correct ERGONOMICS and functionality
– we’re proud of the fact!
BACK SUPPORT SYSTEMS
3 different back support systems ensure that there is always a JEVA schoolbag or backpack to fit your back perfectly, ensuring correct ergonomics.
The back of the schoolbag or backpack fits flush to the back of the child, preventing air pockets. Our back support systems are soft, comfortable and sturdy – an ideal fit for the childs or persons back.
GOOD ERGONOMICS ALSO MEAN LOW WEIGHT:
JEVA’s schoolbags and backpacks weigh 580 to 985 grams – the bag should not weigh more that 15% of the child’s weight.
Choose a schoolbag of low weight from the beginning.
The breast strap, which can always be adjusted, ensures the correct position of the shoulder straps – just above the chest.
All of the straps on our schoolbags and backpacks are shaped and fitted.
BEWARE OF NECK AND BACK OF THE HEAD
We avoid details that cause discomfort to the neck and back of the head.
For example, our detachable sportsbag is located on the front of the bag instead of on the top. It is also long and flat to keeep the weight close to the back or body and to retain freedom of movement.
We also gave thought to functionality to ensure that it is easy to get to the bags’s other compartments when the sportsbag is attached.
Don't forget to watch your bag/back!
Occupational therapist, Helle Hammer Mortensen:
As an occupational therapist I am always happy to see children with their schoolbag on their backs.
I would like to recommend JEVA schoolbags, because the models are carefully thought out and tested during many years. The schoolbags are easy for the children to use, they are equipped with many good features and there are sizes that fit all children.
My eyes are often caught by children with schoolbags of the wrong sizes, like a tiny girl who is almost falling over because her schoolbag is too big and heavy on the backside. Or the bigger boy who has loosened the shoulder straps so much that the bag is hanging way too loose on his back and behind.
The smaller children biking with their jacket open and the bag on their shoulders, but the straps have not been tightened and everything is flapping around them.
Unfortunately, I also see examples of bags that are so high up on the neck that the child cannot look to the sides or back.
It is important to make sure the schoolbag is not too heavy. Remember that the bag has a weight in itself – as do the lunch box, pencil case, books, tablet, sports clothes and even an empty water bottle. Therefore, JEVA’s schoolbags are an excellent choice because they are lightweight: 580-982 grams. Good ergonomics and the correct distribution of the weight are also connected with the low weight.
Teach your child to clean up the bag every day, so he or she only carries the most necessary things to school.
It is likewise important to tighten the shoulder straps when the bag is on the back, so it fits to the clothing of the child both summer and winter, and always to fasten the chest strap to keep the shoulder straps from slipping over the shoulders and also the waist band, if there is one.
How to adjust the bag
A JEVA schoolbag is easy to use the correct way, and you will be able to enjoy all the advantages of the ergonomic design, if you follow Helle´s instructions in this video, where she is adjusting a BEGINNERS schoolbag to fit in the ergonomically correct way on our cute little model.
