Knee pad


Knee pad

Kneepads or knee pads are protective gear worn on knees to protect them against impact injury during, e.g., a fall or a strike, or to provide padding for extended kneeling.

In sports

Kneepads are worn in many recreational and sporting activities such as cycling, rollerskating, skateboarding, volleyball, American football, polo, dancing, etc. In polo, kneepads serve primarily to protect the rider's knee when "riding off" an opponent.

In trades and military use

Kneepads are also used in various trades, for the home handyman, for police SWAT teams, are incorporated into military uniforms such as the Army Combat Uniform and the Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform. These kneepads are generally designed differently than the general all round high impact kneepads made for sports.
