I am a student. I am interested in what research has been done on the
effect of wearing a backpack or carrying a purse has on the shoulder
girdle. Has there been any research which looks at the shear and
compressive forces? What injuries have been associated with wearing a
heavy backpack or purse? So far most of the literature has been on the
effects on the low back, energy expenditure and gait during back pack
use.
