NEW ANTIMICROBIAL WORKWEAR KNEEPADS FIGHT OFF INFECTION

A multi-award winning, non-foam, workwear safety kneepad, constructed from flexible antimicrobial thermoplastic elastomers, is believed to be the first workwear kneepad which attacks micro-organisms at source, helping to protect the wearer from knee infection and prevent the spread of disease within the workplace.

Having to kneel in any work situation can increase the risk of developing and spreading germs caused by heat and accumulated, absorbed dirt. The antimicrobial properties within REDBACKS kneepads which have been independently tested to ISO 22196, are effective against MRSA, E-Coli, Salmonella and other harmful bacteria.

Especially important for use in such places as hospitals, care-homes, schools, the food service industry, public places and the home, the ‘cushioning technology’ and flexibility of the kneepads also ensure that there is no friction danger of skin abrasion caused by internal shear forces within the knee surface. These forces are extremely destructive and damaging to tissue and can lead to impaired blood flow, pain, tissue breakdown and pressure sores.

Unlike their foam-based counterparts, the honeycomb matrix and TPE leaf-spring construction of the kneepads return them to their original form after prolonged pressure, offering the same high level of protection every time, helping to prevent knee, leg, ankle and foot injury, by elevating the knees and evenly distributing body weight. This also allows fresh air to circulate to either cool or heat to body temperature.

Voted ‘Winner 2012 – SATRA Best Innovation in Occupational PPE’, the washable Redbacks kneepads are fully CE approved and the first and only in the World to use leaf-spring technology, bringing unrivalled relief from pain or discomfort either during or as a result of kneeling.
