Not only are all our baby carriers ergonomic & certified as “back-friendly” by
the AGR (Aktion Gesunder Rücken), but we’ve brought this same comfort to our
latest innovation – the Metro Compact City Stroller.
But what does this actually mean?
The AGR says :
Commodities with a back-friendly design are essential and important aids in both preventing backache and in treating diseases of the locomotor system. But it is not always easy to decide which product is the right one. The seal of approval developed by the AGR together with Germany’s two largest back school associations therefore provides valuable assistance for consumers when purchasing ergonomic everyday commodities such as office furniture, car seats, beds, bikes, upholstered furniture, shoes, satchels, furniture for children and youngsters, home workstations etc.
The strict testing criteria and the composition of the committee with designated medical experts means that the AGR seal of approval is well accepted in the medical world. This has been verified also by the results of a major survey on backache conducted among around 1,000 orthopaedic specialists in Germany. 90% of those interviewed said that patient willingness to use back-friendly everyday commodities constitutes a crucial success factor, also with regard to therapy. 71% even said that they preferred to recommend their patients aids that bear the AGR seal of approval. For consumers too, the seal has become established as a clear decision-making aid, signalising: “this is a back-friendly product!”
Ergobaby have always had comfort for babies AND parents at the front of mind when creating new products and the Metro Compact City Stroller is no exception. We want to keep you both as comfortable as possible as you journey through life together.
The stroller’s ergonomic design features a soft and comfy padded seat with advanced multi-zone support and an adjustable leg rest to give baby a superior level of comfort, and is the only stroller on the market to be certified ‘back-friendly’ by experts at the AGR. The Metro’s smooth ride suspension and large back tires easily handle pavement cracks, cobblestones and curbsides for an enjoyable ride.
