RedBacks® Pocketed Knee Pads have been ergonomically designed to provide protection, comfort and help reduce the risk of injury to individuals who kneel for long periods of time.
Unlike standard foam or gel knee pads, Redbacks® unique, patented ‘Leaf-Spring’ Cushioning Technology, provides support to the user’s knees by suspension rather than compression. The combination of the flexible leaf spring and geometric matrix, works to absorb and distribute the users body weight evenly, alleviating pressure on the knees and help to reduce discomfort in the back, legs, and ankle joints.
Furthermore, in recent scientific testing the product was shown to provide immediate protection to the knee, eliminating pressure points and significantly reducing the chance of short and long-term damage to the joint when compared with competitor products on the market.
Other features included, an abrasive resistant cover to prevent sharp objects from penetrating the knee, a curved design to fit comfortably around the knee and a soft rubberised construction for 100% recovery to original shape without loss of function overtime.
Redbacks® Pocket Knee Pads fit comfortably in all pocketed work trousers. Each knee pad weighs only 0.18kg (6oz) and has been successfully tested to support 450kg or 70st of weight without flattening out and becoming uncomfortable to the user.
Redbacks® also give thermal protection from hot and cold surfaces, are waterproof, fully washable - at a recommended temperature of 30°c to 40°c (can be left in trousers for washing) - and 100% Recyclable.
