Healthy Back Bags ® were developed in collaboration with a doctor and a chiropractor to address weight stress issues in a one-strap bag. The teardrop shape distributes weight ergonomically throughout the length of the bag, rather than pulling from one point on the shoulder. The bag doesn't pull away from the body, it contours to your back, whether you wear it on one shoulder (either shoulder) or cross-body.
There are no rigid elements in the Healthy Back Bag's construction, so it moulds to any shape back. The more places a bag touches your body when you wear it, the lighter it feels - it becomes part of you - and the less it adversely affects your posture. All bags have a non-slip strap lining so it can be worn on one shoulder without slipping off or pulling away from the body, so the wearer does not need to make any corresponding adjustments (like unconsciously hunching the shoulder) to keep the bag in place. When the bag is worn across the back, it frees the arms allowing the wearer to walk in a correct bio-mechanic fashion.

The Healthy Back Bag can be worn 4 different ways: on either shoulder or cross-body left to right or right to left. The main zipper should be facing forwards toward the body and the narrow part of the bag should be at the top as near to the top of the shoulder as is comfortable.
The bottom of the bag should nestle gently into the base of the spine - the strongest part of the back.
Adjust the strap length. This ensures that the bag sits correctly in place.
The shorter the strap the snugger the fit to the back and the lighter the bag will feel.
The bag should always be worn vertically and is not designed to be worn across the front of the body.
