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.
