The 11 Degree Wedge from Posturite provides a distinct degree of elevation to the hips, tilting the pelvis forward and bringing the spine into a correct alignment. The wedge offers an 11° slant, making it a good option for those who desire a clearly discernible increase in elevation at the back of their seat. The greater thickness of this wedge (3.5" at the back, 0.75" at the front) makes it a good choice for use in chairs that have a deep depression at the back, or with automotive seats that have compressed from extreme use.
Users requiring a lesser degree of tilt or cushioning may find the Posturite Slimline Wedge a more suitable selection.

Encourages Better Posture
- The wedge shape creates a slight forward "rotation" or "tilt" of the pelvis. This aids in restoring the natural "S-Curve" necessary for proper spinal posture. The result of this action is that the head and neck will be better supported by the spine, rather than relying on the muscles of the back to hold them in position. This can be especially beneficial on seats which have too much of a downward slope (common in vehicles) that can force the back into an unnatural forward bend. This forward tilt also transfers weight onto the "sitz" bones, while at the same time reducing pressure points on the buttocks.
- By elevating the user in their seat the wedge design has the potential to reduce pressure points against the back of the thigh behind the knee. This is not uncommon in car seats, especially for those of smaller stature.
Encourages Activation of Core Muscles
- The forward tilt generated by the wedge design can encourage the user to maintain a degree of tension in their core muscles rather than letting them fully relax and slumping back into the seat.
- Adding a degree of padding to any seat will reduce impact pressure from sitting down or, in the case of driving, from road vibration. The wedge design places the greater degree of padding below the primary weight-bearing zone.
