EUME - World's First Built-In Back Massaging Backpack
We are constantly on the move, and racing against time. EUME massager backpacks act as a balance to this rush, providing you with the momentary stillness, and revitalisation that you deserve. It gives you the power to focus on more important things.
The Innovation: World's First Massager Backpacks
We think that this is one of those "why didn't I think of this before" kind of ideas, and it truly is. Urban mobility luggage solutions are a huge need of the hour. Millions of people around the world use backpacks to store and secure their daily essentials, while others explore the great outdoors with a backpack. Even on a solo trip, the backpack is your true and loyal companion.
How does the Massager Work?
The massager helps stimulate blood flow, help you relax at your choice of time, and place. You can now enjoy massages on your way to work, and even while hiking.
The massagers activate at the touch of a button, and has 3 modes:
Mode 1: Operates the top massagers
Mode 2: Operates the lower massagers
Mode 3: Operates both the massagers
The Collection - Classic Backpack, Daily Backpack and Travel Backpack
All have the back massager feature + more. You can choose from the Classic Backpack,
or the Daily Backpack, which is perfect for everyday use.
Or Travel BackPack which is great for travellers.
Designed for Ergonomics and Comfort
All the Backpacks are designed from the ground up to improve your blood circulation, relax your back, and reduce fatigue through the day.
Several compartments have been added for better weight distribution, and storage optimization in an intelligent manner.
The bags are designed to be universal for various heights. Using the height adjustment strap at either side of the bag, the user can align the backpack to their requirements.
You can adjust the flexible back torso, with the easy straps on the back of the bag. It helps you to align the top massagers and the bottom ones, to support areas where you would like a massage. The primary focus of the adjustment straps is the users shoulder and lower back
Built To Carry With Ease
The Challenge of carrying a heavy sling bag or backpack on a daily basis increases the chances of discomfort and back pain. This load over long stretches of time strains your back, and shoulder muscles.
The form hugs your back, and the straps have been designed to improve your posture, helping you walk straight.
The EUME Classic Pack is the ideal backpack that one can use on a regular basis. The bag consists of antitheft features, it is water resistant, has optimum storage space and has an inbuilt dual USB port, one which can be used to charge your external device, and the other mini-USB port to charge the power bank placed within, so you can stay away from all the hassle to remove the power bank to charge it before putting it back inside! The backpack with the massaging feature keeps your back relaxed and rejuvenated at all times.
The massager adjusting straps, ensures that the massager can comfortably be used by people of various heights.
It's water resistant fabric lets you conquer any weather, and it makes sure that all your belongings are safe and secure (and most important dry).
One major limitation of having a smaller backpack is space. Space limitations, don't let you pack how much you want, and when you try to squeeze a few necessary items into your backpack, the weight of the bag increases, which takes a toll on your back.
The EUME daily pack, weighs less when compared to other backpacks, and has storage compartments for all your daily necessities.
The Daily pack has an inbuilt USB port, which allows you to seamlessly charge your phone/tablet anywhere, at any time. It also hosts a micro USB port, with lets you simultaneously charge your power bank as well.
We recommend using atleast a 5,000 mAh power bank, which ensures seamless flow of charge for your devices, and the back massager.
We designed the bag to have a seamless exterior, and a compact footprint, but at the same time the interior of the bag hosts a ton of useful features.
The daily pack provides easy access to all your stuff. The icons on the bag designates where to store things, and the built in charging system powers up your mobile and tablet. The bag has multiple storage compartments, some of which are hidden for users security purposes.
More integrated features of the Daily pack have been mentioned below, as those features are shared with the travel pack.
Loosen your muscles while you're on the go.
The Daily pack comes in two colors. The first option is a combination of two colors, grey melange and black. The second color option is a combination of gray melange and urban camo pattern.
The EUME Travel Pack is designed for Travel enthusiasts, who can commute for longer duration's without being space constraint. Travel packing systems, makes packing less of an ordeal.
A lay-flat open design lets the user easily pack their essentials into the travel pack. Intelligently placed support straps, and a convenient side handle, makes traveling and carrying around your belongings a breeze.
The Travel Pack comes in two colors. The first option is a combination of two colors, grey melange and black. The second color option is a combination of gray melange and urban camo pattern.
Convenient modular pouches makes packing less of a hassle. They allow you to make better use of the bags space, so you can fit more into your bag, while the items are better protected.
Unlike the classic and daily pack, which has a laptop and tablet compartment, the EUME travel pack has a detachable electronic sleeve, that houses your laptop, tablet, chargers and a book.
The pouches can be easily stacked inside the bag, and because of the shape given to them, there are barely any awkward gaps. The symbol on each organizer makes it easy for the traveler to pack their belongings in the designated pouches.
The detachable electronic sleeve in the travel pack is designed such that you don't need to lug your bag around everywhere. You can conveniently carry only your electronic devices in the sleeve, and leave the bag behind.
