In recognition of our back-friendly products, we have received this accolade from the AGR for their seal of approval for all of our Ergobaby carriers including our latest innovation OMNI 360.
The panel of experts is made up of members from the German Association for Back Training Facilities (BdR) and the “Forum: Healthier Backs – Live Well” (Forum: Gesunder Rücken – besser leben e.V.), who recognise the proven ergonomic quality of Ergobaby products.
Our Ergobaby ergonomic baby carriers from our Original, Organic, Performance, 360, 360 Cool Air and Omni 360 collections promote healthy childhood development, while offering parents maximum comfort.
“Our appreciation of parents is firmly embedded in our brand philosophy. For this reason, we are over the moon to be recognised by the AGR, which just reinforces our commitment to very high-quality ergonomic products. This also underlines, once again, the importance of ergonomics in the baby carrier sector, with a focus on the best-possible development of the spine and hips in children, and maximum comfort for parents”, explains Gunnar Dahl, Managing Director for Europe.
The strict testing criteria for the AGR seal of approval was developed by independent medical and therapeutic experts in various specialist fields. The panel of experts was filled by members from the German Association for Back Training Facilities (BdR) and the association “Forum: Healthier Backs – Live Well”. A product has the chance to receive the coveted seal of approval only when the AGR’s demanding criteria have been fulfilled.
In addition to this latest award, Ergobaby had already received an accolade in the field of ergonomics: recommended by midwives, the Ergobaby carriers are also accredited as “hip-healthy” by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute.
Ergonomic for parents and children
With Ergobaby carriers, children can be carried effortlessly for long periods, while the child is supported in its natural posture. The child’s weight is on the carrier’s hips, protecting the shoulders, back and joints. At the same time, the carrier benefits the child’s physical development, as the anatomically-correct carrying of newborns in the splayed position relieves pressure on the hips, and the flexible back support supports the spine, head and neck. The Ergobaby Original, Organic, Performance, 360, 360 Cool Air and Omni 360 collections cater to both the carrier’s and the child’s ergonomic needs, and the wide range of products allows for different carrying positions and variations according to individual requirements.
