Re: knee pads

We've got two kneeling pads--both about 16 inches by 8 inches, one soft plastic, the other firmer plastic. Both work well, but you do have to stop and move them.

Judy: Am married to a flooring installer who refuses to ever, ever wear
knee pads for any reason...says an ortho. doc told him long ago that the
rolling around of the knee cap that pads allow for actually causes more
arthritis inducing damage than it prevents. DH claims the simple
kneeling pads that only provide a little cushion but stabilize the knee
cap are better for you, if something of a pain in the butt cause you
have to move it each time you move. Don't know how much knee pad
technology has come along in the intervening years since DH had that
conversation with his doc, but might want to check on it if you're going
to be using them much.

Subject: Re: [CHAT] knee pads

I've bought a couple pair made of foam. DH at first said they were a
waste<br>of money, but has worn the first one out & has the second pair
stashed<br>somewhere. As I recall they were under $20 at Home Depot. May
have to add<br>that to my shopping list. I'd be interested to know if
anyone has used the<br>gel padded ones. They would be heavier, but that
material does spread the<br>pressure out better. The closed cell
compressable foam would be even better<br>from a pressure reduction
standpoint.<br>----- Original Message -----<br>From: "Donna"
