Thigh pads are used to protect the muscles along the upper thigh. The pads should be constructed of a polyethyleur plastic and covered by closed cell foam, which has been dipped in vinyl.
There are two main types of thigh pads, which are available in different shapes and sizes.
- Universal: This pad is cut in a manner that allows it to be worn on either thigh.
- Regular: This pad is cut with a notch whereby it is made for only on one leg or the other. There are rights and lefts.
