FAQ

The Paexo Soft Knee is a knee pad for insertion into knee pockets of work pants. (Type 2 knee protection) It relieves pressure on the knees during kneeling activities, without having to be strapped to the knees.

The Paexo Soft Knee is certified according to DIN EN 14404:2010-05.

We have deliberately decided against knee pads with straps, as these increase the risk of knee problems due to prolonged kneeling.

See DIN EN 14404:2010-05: “If the knee protection is provided by knee pads held onto the legs with straps the problems are worse as these contribute to pressure restricting venous drainage.”

The knee pad has been certified to Level 1, which means it has been tested together with respective working pants for puncture resistance at a force of 100N.
