Abstract [en]

In recent years, several new designs of student backpack have been introduced to the world market, one of which is a popular single-strap backpack (SSB). This study compared an SSB with a more conventional double-strap backpack (DSB) using subjective perceptual methods. These methods included category ratio scale ratings of perceived regional comfort, undifferentiated rate of perceived exertion and subjective responses to written questions using either a 100 mm visual analogue scale or a free-format written response that inquired about practicality, comfort, adjustability, positive and negative feedbacks and overall subjective preference in a simulated field trial (walking around a representative 'field-route' for 20 minutes at a self-selected pace). The DSB was generally significantly superior to the SSB in terms of overall preference (13 participants selected DSB, 1 for SSB), practicality, adjustability, comfort, balance and ease of walking. DSB was also associated with less discomfort at the back of the neck, less perceived pressure on the shoulders and a lower rating of perceived exertion. It is concluded that a DSB is generally superior to an SSB for student load carriage.
