“Give your child a strong and good posture for life. Today we see how many children and young people get stuck in front of various digital devices and become sedentary for too long, and also in bad positions. This is where gameneck or ipadneck came from. Make sure your child takes many breaks and is reminded to stretch their muscles and regain their posture after a play session "
Gabriella Follin, physiotherapist
Good posture and strong back for the future
We do not want to see more drooping children's backs over computers or screens. Good posture is established when the body grows and is affected by our lifestyle, muscle mass, movement and mood. Stimulating the body to habits of good posture is a gift the body and health enjoy throughout life!
The posture band changes the posture
The Kids harness is designed for children or young people who are still growing and the harness is flexible, discreet and easy to use.
- The posture band teaches your child to hold their shoulders down and back for a better posture.
- It makes your child aware of their bad attitude.
- The band strengthens the torso core muscles.
- It reduces problems and pain in the neck, shoulders and back.
- It ensures that your child grows sustainably with the right S-curvature in the spine.
Why is it important to work with children's posture?
A growing child needs to have a habit of upright posture to strengthen the muscles that hold the natural S-curvature of the spine. Hours over books, iPads or screens risk keeping the child or young person in a curved position with the spine in a C-curve, the abdominal muscles relaxed and the shoulders, neck and head leaning forward. This puts a great strain on the lumbar spine, neck and shoulders. The children's neck muscles are not fully developed and the load of a 10-12 kg head that is intended to be balanced directly on the spine at a forward hanging angle gives pain and poor posture and that the growing body does not have strength in the right places to keep the body upright. Try to shorten the time in front of screens and fill it with many breaks for movement. They should rather lie on their stomachs over iPads instead of sitting in a bad position.

A: When a sender or receiver gives 'authority to leave' (ATL), they’re giving the delivery driver permission to leave the parcel at the delivery address without a signature when the parcel is delivered (as long as it’s safe to do so). All orders are automatically assigned authority to leave unless instructed otherwise.
Q: Why should I provide Authority to Leave?
This is the best way to allow for contactless delivery, which is safe for yourself and the delivery person too.
The other benefit of delivering orders with authority to leave is that the parcel will almost always be delivered on the first attempt. This means you won’t have to organise a redelivery and pay the re-delivery fee or collect the order from a local collection point.

A: A Tail lift is a mechanical device permanently fitted to the back of a delivery truck. It is used to lift heavy items on and off the truck when a forklift is not available.
Please note: Sometimes in the event that a tail lift truck is not available, the freight carrier will hand unload the heavy items off the truck. Hand unload by the freight carrier is covered by the tail lift surcharge if the tail lift service is not available.

- To prevent paying re-delivery fees, extra delivery charges etc. please ensure you provide us with special delivery instructions.
Q: What if items are missing from my order?
Short delivery: If your order is over 22kg and under 250kg it is possible that the items have been sent via a courier in loose boxes. Occasionally the courier may deliver the items in different batches. E.G If you order ten items and you receive only eight, then the delivery is short (of two items) = short delivery. The courier will then deliver the remaining items in the next 1-3 business days.
Out of stock items: Occasionally, some items may be temporarily out of stock and will be delivered at a later date as a back order, however, you will usually be notified of this prior to despatch.
If you believe you are missing any boxes or items after carefully checking and opening everything you have received, (multiple items may be combined in one box), please check your invoice and courier delivery dockets to confirm.
Any claims for missing items must be made within 7 days of receiving your order (no exceptions) so that we can investigate whether it was a warehouse despatch error or items have been temporarily lost in transit. The sooner we are notified, the better chance we have of resolving missing items.
