Protective padding is a type of personal protective equipment (PPE) that is worn to protect the body from impact or other types of injury. Protective padding is typically worn in sports and other physical activities where there is a risk of collision or falls, but it can also be worn in work environments where there is a risk of injury from moving machinery or other hazards.
There are many different types of protective padding available, including padding for the head, elbows, knees, and other parts of the body. The specific type of padding that is needed will depend on the type of activity being performed and the level of protection that is required.
It is important to choose the appropriate type of protective padding for the specific activity being performed and to wear it consistently when participating in activities that pose a risk of injury.
