||Field tests with knee pads for work in kneeling posture
||Feldversuch mit Knieschützern für Arbeiten, die eine kniende Haltung erfordern [in German]|
||June 1995, No.6, p.300-303. Illus.
||The comfort of ergonomically designed knee pads was tested in jobs involving a kneeling position, such as paving roads with cobblestones, asphalting, tiling, floor-laying and plumbing. Questionnaires were distributed to assess the knee pads. Of 1,068 wearers, 425 found the comfort of the knee pads better than average, 416 found them average and 272 found them unsuitable. Hot asphalt destroyed the polyurethane material the knee pads were made of. Floor-layers in particular liked the knee pads; tilers and pavers followed.
