ProKnee’s ‘all-purpose kneepads utilise new innovative strap design’

NEED a compact kneepad solution that provides comfort and support on those tight space jobs? The ProKnee Corporation has developed the AP16, which it describes as an all-purpose compact one-size-fits-all kneepad that reportedly stays true to ProKnee’s fit, form and function principles by utilising ‘its iconic knee pocket shape and flat bottom design’.

Says ProKnee: ‘These features help support the meniscus by stabilising the area around the knee joint from excessive movement as weight is applied, which reduces joint wear-out and knee burn pain: the key to happy, healthy knees. Patented worldwide, this kneepad offers full protection and a lot of value for money. The pad’s safe, resilient and replaceable cellular urethane cushions come in two cushion thickness options (5/8in and 1in) and successfully absorb shock out of day-to-day wear and tear from kneeling.

‘Radius-on-frame perimeter ribbing provides maximum flexibility in extreme kneeling positions, while a slotted lower frame and live hinge create a ‘glove-like’ feeling on your knees. The AP16’s straps are adjustable and pre-angled to allow two different strap placement options to meet your desired comfort level.’

The company continues: ‘In most recent developments for 2023, ProKnee’s AP16 elastic straps were designed with robust ribbing that allows the patented lock of their Smartlock Plus buckle to bite into the strap and achieve your perfect, secure fit with just a pull. Mechanically locking in your fit ensures no slipping and no need to retighten.’

Adds the company: ‘The SmartLock
Plus Quick Release Buckle works in conjunction with the ribbed strap to provide an ergonomic, larger format buckle that is easy on the fingers and works on all kneepad models past and present. ProKnee’s ribbed straps and Smartlock Plus Buckle is proven to
provide you with a comfortable fit you can work in all day long.

‘Additionally, all parts are completely replaceable to extend the life of your kneepads and maximise your investment. With various individual parts offerings (from buckles to liners to cushions) and parts kit options (complete rebuild kits at a fraction of the cost for a new pair of pads), you can rebuild the AP16 many times over to sustain your knees and your career for many years to come.’
