KNEE PROTECTION FOR LANDSCAPERS
Many landscaping activities are carried out in a kneeling position. Proper knee protectors are essential in preventing many unpleasant health issues.
Since professionals that work in landscaping need to move around a lot, mobility is of the essence which is why we normally recommend the FENTO ORIGINAL. When you spend most of your time working on your knees without moving around too much the FENTO MAX would be a great fit for you as well.
PREVENTING KNEE AND BACK COMPLAINTS
When working in a kneeling position, there is constant pressure on your knees. However, your knee is generally not very capable to withstand this stress, which means damage can occur in the long run. Recovery often takes a long time and damage could be permanent. Working on your haunches is not healthy either, as this stretches the knee ligaments. Knee and back problems can be prevented by wearing good knee protectors, as these offer the right support for your activities.
For the development of the Fento knee protectors, dozens of people were given a plaster mould to find the correct ergonomic shape. Various prototypes were made, and tested by different types of ‘kneeling workers’. The best solution proved to be a knee protector that distributes the load across the knee as well as the lower leg. The knee protector also had to be light as a feather, breathable and hard-wearing. And that is how the Fento knee protector was born.
For professionals that work in landscaping we could recommend each of our 4 ergonomic knee protectors, depending on your own preference and how much time you spend working on your knees. If you would work on your knees most of your time we would recommend either the FENTO ORIGINAL or FENTO MAX, if not, the FENTO POCKET and FENTO BOARD would be a great fit for you.
