The perfect medical backpack to free your moves


Why choose a medical backpack rather than a doctor's or nurse's bag?

The great advantage of the medical backpack is of course to have your hands free. This makes it the favourite bag for doctors and nurses who have to travel to their patients by bicycle or other two-wheeled vehicles or who use public transport for their daily rounds. It is also the perfect medical bag for medical emergences or rescues who need to intervene quickly in an accident-prone environment.

Access to content

Most medical backpacks have zips. They must be strong and of high quality because they are often and daily used. KYC closures are quality closures.

In addition, the contents of the bag must be easily accessible. Does the backpack have side openings? At the back? To access the bottom of the bag?

Inner compartmentalisation

Which inner compartmentalisation for a medical backpack?

Medical backpacks have variable internal compartments depending on the brand and model:

- fixed compartmentalisation for some

- modular compartments with velcro dividers for further compartments

- presence of extractable, semi-opaque, isothermal storages or pockets...

- net compartments, ribbons...

All medical or first aid equipment (needles, syringes, catheters, dressings, bandages, cotton...) as well as medical instruments (thermometer, tensiometer, stethoscope, scissors, forceps) must find their dedicated place to enable you to act quickly in emergency situations or during your routine homecare.

To illustrate, here, are a few examples of the internal compartmentalisation of medical or nursing backpacks:

Quality/price ratio

 Made of resistant syntetic fabrics, they are of good quality. Your attention should be focused on the quality of the seams and zips.

Taking a brand known or certified by the EU medical industry is a way to invest in a medical backpack that is not only more expensive but also more solid and durable.

Favour waterproof fabrics that will protect the contents of the bag in all seasons and in all weathers.
