Abstract

The problem with backpacks today is that they are not supportive nor comfortable to carry around for 8 hours. Students complain about back pain due to lack of support in material in backpacks and how much they have to carry for school everyday. The creation of this backpack is to be stylish, affordable, and most of all comfortable for students that carry a lot of school supplies that makes backpacks heavier. This project is to benefit anyone that may experience back pain with backpacks especially students. This project is one of a kind as there were no similar projects to it. With this project, the materials will be an original backpack, add memory foam to the shoulder straps, and air in the back part of the backpack, hoping this will make shoulder and back pain decrease. To see if the design worked, there will be a few testes to take the survey provided with levels mild, moderate, or servere on how bad they experience back pain from original backpacks then after the designed backpack has been worn for two weeks, they will take the same survey again in hopes they choose the option that says “no pain”. If there were somebody that did experience pain, their opinion would be asked and revision(s) will be made.
