Knee pads. Where you go, they go. Easier than dragging a bench around. And they are very effective.

As one ages or has problems with their knees; the handles do help you get up off the ground. You can use your arms to assist your knees.

I was just going to mention these.

I have knee pads that I strap on. I also have a little plushy rectangular pad that I can kneel on (made for that purpose) if I don't want to bother with the knee pads. I like that better if I'm wearing shorts.

It seems like this would work for me. I notice the lady is not really on her knees but the weight is in her lower leg. The handles would solve the getting up problem. Sold.

I also have thee sets of knee pads. With the knee pads you have no handles to help you get up so you have to count on your surroundings. But, with the knee pads, you can move around on the ground without worrying about getting up each time to move your 'kneeler'. So both systems have their advantages and disadvantages.

I also have a 4'X4'X1" square of high density foam. I use that a lot if I have to kneel and I might have to lay on my back to see under a vehicle or do a low job. It saves my knees and it gives me the option of laying on the pad instead of on the dirt. I don't even know where I got that; it was probably a piece of scrap from a freight dock? Of course that has no handles to help one up.
I bought a good foam pad a couple of years ago. It is the best of the three I have found. It allows me to kneel over rocks that border our beds. It is big enough, but not as big as yours. I’ve had two sets of knee pads that have gone bad fairly quickly. The elastic slips or gets stretched out.

I can get up from kneeling, but it is uncomfortable. I have the idea that a kneeler might have its uses for me. Thanks for your input.

Happy gardening!

This is the garden kneeler we've used for over 10 years.. Seat one way or flip over and padded kneeler inside. Heavy duty strength and e-z to pull ones self up. You can also add another pad inside for extra comfort.

I like that you can flip it for a sitting spot!

I have an old one that was with my former home and I took it with me. It is fabulous for getting up. It gives you just enough to "push off" from to get up. It does not work well on uneven surfaces, so I usually use a knee pad for them and juts place that to my right side so I have support to get up on my own even though I am not kneeling on it. I always crawl over to a coffee table to couch to stand now so same type usage.
