Developing cushioning and protection technology is an exacting science - rightly so, given the considerable stresses everyday work activities such as kneeling, bending and standing place on the human body.
The secret to our own science lies in the use of a special moulded leaf-spring suspended in an arch by a flexible honeycomb matrix. When pressure is applied directly above the spring it bends, dispersing pressure and distributing weight evenly. The matrix provides a holding structure for the spring to control its bend and stabilise the entire structure, allowing pressure to be distributed evenly time after time.
Both the honeycomb matrix and the leaf-spring are made from the same thermoplastic injection moulded material, ensuring a high compression rate and 100% recovery to its original shape, which means no loss of function over time. This combination gives the unique controlled distribution and deceleration of pressure – in other words protecting the body from impact forces making it particularly effective for pressure relief when standing, sitting, lying down or kneeling.
It is this memory aspect to the material that elevates our technology above the competition. Differing from basic foams such as PU and EVA, which provide limited cushioning by air pockets that collapse relatively quickly, Redbacks Cushioning Technology ultimately performs at a higher cushioning rate for longer, enabling you to work harder for longer in greater comfort.
