864-00 All-Terrain Gel Kneepads have a donut-shaped GEL filled pad that provides cushioning, shock and reduces direct pressure to the patella bone while you work. The elevated surface of the 864-00 kneepad improves stability and traction, absorbs impact, and helps support your knee. The co-polymer thermoplastic rubber cover prevents marring and scratching delicate surfaces that you may be working on. The cover is sewn-on which helps to prevent debris from entering the kneepads and the extended treads on the sides of the kneepads absorb pressure around the perimeter of the knee. The 864-00 kneepads are perfect for when you are required to work on your knees for long periods of time and need the added protection that gel padding can provide.
ABOUT KNEE PROTECTION: Continuous pressure on the knee due to working in a kneeling position may lead to chronic conditions, such as bursitis over the knee cap or injury to the cartilage. Excessive pressure can cause problems such as knee burn pain, fluid build up, tissue swelling, loose joints and associated arthritic conditions. Major knee damage will occur when combining existing trauma with prolonged pressure and irritation along with turning and twisting motions. The use of knee pads is an effective way to reduce the occurrence of knee injuries. Knee pads protect against injuries and inflammation caused by hard surfaces, pieces of gravel and similar objects on ground.
