GARDEN GROVE, CA -- Allegro Industries has long been a leader in the design and distribution of ergonomic products for the workplace. Back injury, carpal tunnel syndrome and other joint and muscular stresses have proven costly to virtually every type of business. Allegro offers one of the most extensive collections of ergonomic protection available. Top quality back supports, wrist supports, kneepads, and ankle and elbow supports offer unique designs for specific jobs.
Kneepads. With nearly two dozen different designs, Allegro's knee pads are constructed specifically for harsh or delicate surfaces, high-temperature environments, and places where rugged durability is important. The Gel MaxKnee and Gel FlexKnee with Silica insert offer maximum comfort and knee-cap protection for workers kneeling for long periods. The Economy Non-Marking FlexKnee offers an extra-long ribbed cap, to prevent sliding. The nylon cap of the Deluxe Comfort Knee won't mark delicate flooring surfaces and is good for workers who are up and down on their knees all day.
The durable Robo Knee is lightweight for ultimate flexing and maximum comfort. The popular MaxKnee and FlexKnee are available with a unique quick-release buckle that allows fast and easy donning with minimum readjustment. The Welding Knee is made of leather with a flexible non-skid cap, designed to stand up to the everyday demands of a foundry or welding environment. Leather Knee is designed for construction, concrete work or welding applications. A tough abrasion-resistant leather offers protection, and the soft cushion back ensures comfort. The Allegro Shin Guard with EVA foam insert offers maximum comfort, fit and protection with any kneepad.
Back Supports.The Liftbak is a 5" belt of rigid foam that supports the back during strenuous lifting. Designed for greater durability and strength are Allegro's popular Deluxe Spanbak and Bodybelt. Among the other styles of back supports are the Flexbak® and Maxbak® belts. The Flexbak offers a patented three-part closure that ensures a custom fit and superior lumbar support. The Maxbak is a weightlifting-style belt with a patented dual-side closure that provides a comfortable, non-pinching fit. The Deluxe Spanbak is constructed of rugged, high-grade spandex-type material, and is designed with a two-part closing. The Spanbak is available in five sizes for a comfortable fit. Designed for highway work or wherever visibility is necessary, the Economy Hi-Vis offers all the same outstanding features with high-visibility green suspenders and side elastic panels. Also available, the All Fit with neoprene pad support.
Wrist Supports. Allegro addresses the serious problem of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) with six different wrist supports, with each one designed to help maintain a neutral position at the wrist while allowing full movement of the hand and fingers. Dual-Flex(TM) contains eight stays that provide firm support, and it offers an ambidextrous design that fits both right and left hands. Maxrist® is designed with a restrictive metal spoon stay that fits into the palm to eliminate symptoms of CTS and other repetitive strain injuries. Flexrist(TM) offers the all-around comfort and support of Neoprene® and can be worn on the right or left hand.
