845-00 Extended Knee Pads are constructed of co-polymer, toxin-free foam padding that provides excellent knee protection with a lightweight feel for all day protection. 845-00's ribbed surface helps prevent slipping and helps prevent abrasion and knee stress, while the flexible kneepads bend with the knee. The molded design cups the knee cap, the extended wing style further adds protection, and CoolMax® lining wicks away moisture. The double elastic straps are weaved through he kneepad for easy replacement.
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.
