Redbacks Cushioning Ltd, designers of the ‘Leaf-Spring’ cushioning technology, offers a range of products to help protect the knees and body from damage caused by kneeling.
Recently introduced is the new ‘Kneeler mat’. It’s an everyday tool for landscapers whose jobs entail kneeling for any length of time. It also has many applications in and around the home, garden and office.
Giving long term anti-fatigue support and great cushioning comfort from kneeling in any position, the mat features 28 multi-directional leaf springs held within a thermoplastic honeycomb matrix.
Unlike rubber matting, foam or gel based products which can either be too hard or lose their cushioning properties, the Redbacks Kneeler returns to its original shape after each use.
This combination is proven to reduce point pressure and distribute weight evenly. It provides all-day comfort, helping to protect against musculoskeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis.
Suitable for dry or damp conditions, this mat has a waterproof base, is slip and penetration resistant, provides thermal protection from warm or cold surfaces, is portable and has a washable cover.
It can also be used as a comfortable seat cushion and even to stand on with the same weight distribution and tiredness-reducing benefits.
The Redbacks Kneeler weighs 1363gm and is 450mm long, 270mm wide and 35mm deep.
Workwear trousers pocket kneepads and a strapped version, each using the same technology, are also available.
