With this 11 Degree Wedge Cushion feel the quality memory foam support your legs and back. The simple action of sitting is likely to cause neck and lower back pain too many people. This is due to enormous pressure placed on the spine.
Seat wedges are shaped foam cushions which are for use on office chairs, dining chairs or chairs with a firmer base, and car seats. The 11 degree wedge cushion comes equipped with quality Certipur UK foam, designed and manufactured in the UK. We believe that this is important, this gives our seat a competitive edge over our rivals.
We think this Putnams 11 Degree Wedge Cushion provides great back relief and allows you to sit more comfortably. This wedge allows for a better position without the need for a new chair. It is not a good idea to use this wedge on soft seating or sofas. This product is also available as a mattress for whole body comfort and support.
Why do I need a Putnams 11 Degree Wedge Cushion
Wedges provide many advantages when sitting. The shape of the wedge helps to open the angle between your torso and upper leg. This creates a better sitting surface. It is important to remember that wedges are a tool to help you. There is still a need for the user to sit up straight. The wedge is a tool that points you in the right direction of good posture, encouraging good habits.
As illustrated in our images the slope encourages your pelvis to tilt forwards slightly which enhances the inwards curve of your lower back (lordosis). This in turn helps you to sit more upright with your body weight falling more naturally through your sitting bones and reduces strain on the joints, discs and ligaments of the whole of the spine all the way up to your head!
So it’s clear that good posture is essential for good wedge usage. For more information on this please have a look at this really nice article we found entitled “What Is So Important About Posture Anyway?’.
What can I use the 11 Degree Wedge Cushion for?
The Wedges are ideal for car seats because they angle the body to a comfortable, easy driving position. This 11 degree wedge cushion can act as a height booster allowing you to gain an extra 1-2″ in height whilst driving. Placed on an office chair, they adapt the angle of the sitting position, tilting the pelvis forward; encouraging good posture. Designed to help you relieve lower back pain and allows you to sit for longer periods.
Finally it is important to remember that seat wedges vary in degrees of height. This is a putnams 11 degree wedge cushion, please have a look at our range for a larger angle. Why do we have different angles? The larger the angle the more you will “actively” sit. This means that you are consciously using more of your back muscles and as a by product strengthening your spine. A stronger back will over time help with back pain.
