Your Muscles will Thank You with an Ergonomic Laptop Backpack

Anaheim, CA  November 1, 2017  Targus, at the forefront of laptop bag designs since 1983, released an article on the importance of ergonomic designs in laptop backpacks, detailing the key features and benefits to look for when choosing a pack.

While often attributed to how you sit and work within the workplace, Targus explains that ergonomic benefits extend beyond those walls to the gear that you haul to and from the workplace daily — your laptop backpack.

“Ergonomic backpacks are designed around the user,” says Brian Bone, Certified Professional Ergonomist. They are constructed to “provide a proper fit so that muscles of the body do less work and uncomfortable pressure points are relieved.” The user-centered designs help save your muscles from extra work, help to reduce pain, and improve posture and overall comfort. That’s all the more important with the modern-day blend of work and personal life and the mix of gear — tech to gym clothes — that we bring with us to keep up.

Targus’s article details the features that can help create the proper fit, like adjustable straps, the corporal benefits of wearing an ergonomic backpack, and exactly what to look for when searching for a new laptop backpack. Read the full article here to learn more.
