We have a long tradition of collaborating with experts, to ensure that our backpacks have the best ergonomic design. We currently develop and test backpacks in cooperation with Dr. Philip J. Wilkens, a Chiropractor who holds a doctorate degree in lumbar pain. Our aim is to manufacture the world’s best school backpacks and there are fewer things that we appreciate more than international recommendations that confirm that our school backpacks are the most ergonomic school backpacks available to children.
We are extremely proud that we have received recognition from CCA, the Canadian Chiropractic Association. This is the first time that the Association has officially recommended a backpack.
“Beckmann has created a product that aims to be the best backpack available. All users will benefit from Beckmann’s focus on posture, load bearing and centre of gravity. The great extent to which one can adapt the product and the ease with which the user can tailor the backpack to their body shape/size/age/activity, means that for children, Beckmann is the best backpack on the market”, says Ronda Parkes, CCA’s Chief Brand Officer.

The German Society for Paediatric Rheumatology recommends our school backpacks and we support their excellent work!
“We recommend this model to parents, as it has outstanding ergonomic qualities and is of high quality. From a medical perspective, we strongly recommend this ergonomic backpack”, says Dr. Rainer Berendes, Paediatric Rheumatologist

We are proud that Beckmann’s first grade backpack has received IGR’s recommendation. Their tests confirm the user-friendliness and good ergonomic qualities of our backpacks.
“In various tests, we tested the user-friendliness and good ergonomic qualities of Beckmann backpacks. The tests clearly showed that the load is distributed across various points when carrying the backpack. This feature protects the back.” says Christian Brunner, Board member of the IGR Institute for Health and Ergonomics.
The focus on ergonomic principles, which also convinced the jury from the Institute of Health and Ergonomics, meant that Beckmann of Norway received the much sought-after Innovation Award for Ergonomics in 2021 and 2019.
