Knee and body protection
30 October 2019
Redbacks Cushioning, developer of award-winning ‘leaf-spring’ cushioning technology, offers a range of products to help protect the knees and body from damage caused by kneeling.
The Redbacks Pocket Kneepad, specifically designed to fit work trousers, features a flexible leaf-spring held within a thermoplastic honeycomb matrix which ensures a high compression rate and 100% recovery to its original shape.
This combination and the inherent ‘memory’ aspect gives controlled weight distribution; the deceleration of pressure protects both the knees and body from potentially damaging impact forces and gives long-lasting, anti-fatigue support. Redbacks says that traditional foam or gel solutions create point-pressure which focus the force or energy to a point which is then transmitted back into the knee joint and beyond.
Easy to slide in and curved to fit comfortably around the knee, the water-resistant pads, which conform to CE EN14404 Type 2 Level 1, help to protect against possible injury from sharp objects, wick away sweat and provide thermal protection from warm or cold surfaces. They are machine washable at 30°C and are 100% recyclable.
