Our packs are engineered for kids and therefore sized based on torso length. Fit is the key to pack performance so take the time to get it right. To find torso length, measure the back along the spine from the level of the iliac crest (the top of the hipbones) to the C7 (the knobby bone at the base of the neck). Our adjustable shoulder and hip belt straps will enable the necessary fit after selecting the suitable pack. A properly fitted hip belt rides centered over the hipbones and needs to be snug for maximum carrying efficiency.
When is comes to the backpack load, we recommend less than ¼ or 25% of the child’s own body weight in total backpack weight. That’s why we engineer our packs carrying capacity in conjunction with size/torso measurements. We cringe when we see kids with adult sized packs strapped on practically falling backwards under the weight of the load - most noticeable during the school year. We’re working on this problem so stay tuned.

We got use of this device thru my sons therapy clinic. He is 2 1/2 and has CP. He has found that, with Dad's assistance, he can move his legs and actually walk, and run after the other kids! With this Gait Trainer, he feels more confident that he is actually doing the walking and not having Dad hold him up! He seems to be walking straighter and is doing less scissoring with his legs. With the handles I can very lightly hold him up when I feel he is in balance, and even though it has only been a few days, I really like the confidence it gives him. There is still a little strain on my back, and I have adjusted the handles each time. I think it may be something that I'll have to get used to. But at least I do not have to bend completely over when helping him walk. I just read the notes and instructions on line, and there are features that the therapist was not aware of. Currently we are just borrowing this device, but I will end up purchasing one, and perhaps another one to donate to Kieran's other therapy school, so it may help other kids there too. I really like this product!
