Car Seat Wedge Cushion Ireland
Wedge cushions encourage good posture by tilting the pelvis forward and creating a healthy inward curve in the lower back. Good posture benefits the human body in many ways, from preventing spine and disc injuries to improving core muscle tone.
Car seat wedges are becoming popular because they provide the extra support and comfort you need when sitting for long periods of time. They also work very well in wheelchairs and chairs for the office.
Those who spend a lot of time driving or sitting for long periods of time may experience lower back aches and pains. Lumbar rolls offer great support too but Car seat wedges are slanted to enable the user to sit comfortably at the thicker end while still allowing the rest of the body to be completely cushioned. By ensuring the wedge levels off the car seat, there will be less strain and pressure on the back of the lower thigh. It will also help to push the hips forward to promote a better upright sitting position. The seat wedge cushions that we supply will provide a comfortable seating surface that will effortlessly support you on car journeys.
How do you use a wedge cushion for hip pain?
At work and at home just set up your chair to have your knees and hips at 90 degrees and then place the cushion on top. This automatically lifts the hips to be just higher than the knees, allowing the hips to open up and the pelvis to sit in a more supported and relaxed position.
How should I sit when my back hurts?
1. Sit as little as possible, and only for short periods of time (10 to 15 minutes).
2. Sit with a back support like a lumbar roll or Back Cushion at the curve of your back.
3. Keep your hips and knees at a right angle. A Seat Wedge Cushion can help if your seat has a drop in it. (Use a foot rest or stool if necessary.)
