The Slimline Wedge from Posturite is designed to provide a slight elevation to the hips, tilting the pelvis forward and moving the spine into a correct alignment. The wedge offers a 6° slant, intended to meet the needs of those who require a marginal improvement in angle. Suitable for use on most chairs or seats, the Slimline Wedge is comprised of a firm polyurethane foam and has a hard-wearing velour cover which can be easily removed for washing. The slim design of this wedge (2" at back, .75" at front) also makes it a good choice for use in vehicles where headroom may be limited, making thicker cushions impractical.
Users desiring a greater tilt or cushioning may find the Posturite 11 Degree 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 to 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 provided created 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.
- Washable: The Slimline Wedge cover is fully washable and is equipped with a zipper for easy removal.
- Holds Position: The "velour" finish on the Slimline Wedge helps it retain position on the seat.
- Portable: The light weight of the Slimline Wedge (just 1.8 lbs) makes it convenient for use in multiple locations.
- Comfortable Cover: The Slimline Wedge cover has a velour-like finish which is soft to the touch.
