The Shinpads are made from a soft material to help give protection to the shins.
They are particularly helpful for diabetic patients who may walk into chairs, beds, etc., causing ulcers that could take a very long time to heal.
They are made from foam with two layers over the shin bone so there is good protection. There are two soft elastic Hook & Loop Tape straps it keep it in place.
As well as protecting the shins, this product can also be used to protect arms.
Place the Shinpads around the lower legs. Attach with the Hook & Loop Tape around the back of the leg. Cut the Hook & Loop Tape to size if it is too long.
Also available: Wool Heel & Elbow Pads.
