Which model of ProKnee kneepads is right for you?

PROKNEE says it offers a full line of knee protection to suit all comfort levels with the Model 0714/0714E custom-fit kneepad and the AP16 all-purpose kneepad.

Says the company: ‘Though both are superior choices on the market, the Model 0714/0714E is backed by an industry-leading eight patents and offers unmatched benefits with its patented shin support system that spreads weight across the length of the shins.

‘This even weight distribution creates a centre of balance at the midpoint of the shins (rather than directly on the knees), which reduces pressure on the knee joint and forces the wearer to use proper kneeling techniques that reconditions, and preserves worn-out knees.

‘Additionally, this kneepad model comes in 18 lengths and two knee seat widths (standard and wide) to provide the wearer with a personalized fit that offers optimal comfort and performance. Typically the Model 0714 with 1in cushions is used by flooring installers or other tradesmen that are either on their knees for more than eight hours a day, have existing knee problems or have undergone knee surgery, weigh more than 200 lbs or who seek the best protection ProKnee brand kneepads has to offer.

‘However, some of our customers who have thinner legs or smaller builds (men and women alike) prefer the 5/8in when it comes to getting a better knee cup fit. The 5/8in cushions provide a deeper knee cup shape, but less cushioning.

‘We, at ProKnee, consider the AP16 as the second best kneepad available. It holds up to daily use and stays true to ProKnee’s fit, form and function principles by utilising the same iconic knee pocket shape and flat bottom design that the 0714 utilises. 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.

‘Moulded in frame components make replacing parts easy, fast and economical as all parts are completely replaceable to extend the life of your pads. The AP16 was created for DIYers and fitters looking for a more compact kneepad that still offers excellent protection, comfort and longevity.

When choosing the 0714, it’s important to remember this model is size specific.
