Don't let them TAKE A KNEE keep yours Safe?

Knee injuries account for roughly 150,000 or 13% of workplace injuries. Employees who have suffered a workplace knee injury can be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. That’s why Impacto® has designed innovative knee protection for almost EVERY industry.

The knee is one of the more common sites for injuries. Every time you take a knee it wears on a very important part of the body – you might not know how much until it’s too late. The most common knee injuries include fractures around the knee, dislocation, and  sprains and tears of soft tissues, like ligaments.

Knees and the Workplace

Knee injuries are among the most common and most debilitating injuries in the workplace including floor work, plumbing, tilling, mechanic, climber with bending as a constant pressure applied on knees. Common workplace knee injuries happen little by little with every crouch, squat and kneel. It’s not like on TV with a career-ending blowout, but it can lead to an early “retirement” all the same.

In the workplace, our knees may be used to operate controls, hold or kick objects into place, or serve as a support when kneeling. For workers who spend a great deal of time working on floor level surfaces, or crawling in confined areas, the phrase “Our knees are our feet!” is appropriate.

What Are Knee Pads for?

Knee pads or kneepads are protective gear worn on knees to protect them against impact injury from falling to the ground or hitting an obstacle, or to provide padding for extended kneeling. Impacto® knee protection products absorb and dissipate shocks, impacts and prevents scratching delicate surfaces. Prevents hip stress, knee stress, knee bruising and increase personal comfort and productivity. Impacto® offers a wide range of different styles of knee protection to fit your needs.

More Shock Value with LESS Shock

Impacto® Gel Rounded Knee CapsIn comparison to standard or conventional kneepads, which rely on foam padding alone, gel pads typically contain foam plus some kind of gel. We are proud to introduce Impacto® Gel  Rounded Knee Caps specially designed to disperse pressure.

This protective part of the kneepad is a rubbery material that's more elastic than foam. Foam contains air; once compressed, it provides little in the way of added shock resistance. Gel is more resilient; like a liquid.

Type and amount of gel varies. In some pads, the gel is used to fill the air spaces Some gel components are round-shaped, with a gap to fit the kneecap; others are blocks of padding in a variety of shapes. Gel rounded knee pads have a cap that allows for swiveling and pivoting during continuous on-the-ground jobs. Gel kneepads help keep pressure away from the knee providing comfort that lasts through the work day.

Workplace knee injuries account for roughly 150,000 of annual workplace injuries nationwide according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s more than 13% of all injuries.

Kneepads are protective gear worn on knees to protect them against impact injury from falling to the ground or hitting an obstacle, or to provide padding for extended kneeling. They usually are described as protective gear because they are the best way to protect your knees. Even if you fall or receive a blow to your knees, kneepads will be able to absorb the force from the impact and significantly lessen the blow. All kneepads should be strong enough to last and be comfortable enough so that they are an easy addition to workplace safety measures already in place.

Prevent hip stress, knee stress, bruising. Increase personal comfort and productivity. Impacto® Gel Rounded Knee Caps easily slides along on smooth surfaces. Real Gel Padding helps disperse pressure away from the patella bone providing comfort that lasts through the work day and provide protection from cumulative trauma injuries. These Gel Knee Pads feature textured co-polymer cover, double straps with hook and loop closure ensure comfortable adjustment and breathable nylon mesh that is sewn to cover the Gel padding to help disperse pressure.

Put a WEDGE Between Your Employees & Workman's Compensation

Impacto® Knee Saver Strain Reliever Wedges.Noise in the knee joint is a common symptom that often leads to outpatient clinic visits. Noise around the knee is common when performing repetitive knee extension and flexion or squats on the floor. Prevent hip stress, knee stress and bruising with Impacto® Knee Saver Strain Reliever Wedges.

Injuries referred to as cumulative or repetitive trauma injuries are caused by a culmination of thousands of insignificant repetitive movements that, by themselves, would not result in injury, but over an extended period of time cause disability and/or the need for medical treatment.

Noise/Popping in the knee or crepitus was reported in 38.1% of women and 17.1% of men. This includes snapping, catching, clicking, crunching, cracking, crackling, creaking, grinding, grating, and clunking. “Popping” is used to describe a sudden sharp explosion - “clunking” is used to describe a loud, singular noise and “grinding” and “grating” are used to describe a continuous scratching noise.

Knee protection equipment stays with the worker wherever they go: they are essentially portable personal padding/protective equipment. Carpet layers, masons, baggage handlers, tile setters, carpenters and other trades do plenty of hard work at or near ground level. In many positions knees support a majority of their body weight in a very different way than while standing. Workers don’t want to be distracted by pain, discomfort or concerns about long-term problems.

Just like foot protection, knee pads should cradle and support all the bones, cartilage, tendons and ligaments in knees. Knee pads are certainly a good choice for support and can be used in conjunction with other protection pieces. Impacto® Knee Saver Strain Reliever Wedges offer more choices when knee pads are not the only good fit for the job.
