Knee pads prevent costly injuries
13 November 2015
Redbacks Cushioning claims that its non-foam based, pocketed safety kneepad – which maintains its maximum cushioning effect throughout consecutive or prolonged use – "can help prevent up to 6 months down time and subsequent loss of earnings through knee injury in the workplace".
According to Cliff Lockyer, CEO of the Daventry-based company which manufactures the ‘Redbacks’ cushioning kneepads, "it is vital to have the correct knee protection in the workplace in order to avoid long-term pain and discomfort and prevent expensive down time loss of earnings".
The kneepads feature a soft and flexible TPE (Thermo Plastic Elastomer) leaf-spring set within a honeycomb matrix. This ‘Redbacks Cushioning Technology’ is designed to distribute body weight evenly, elevating the knees to relieve back pain and reduce pressure on knee, leg, ankle and foot joints, whilst minimising the risk of possible injury from sharp or penetrating objects.
