The Posture Cushion is a pre-inflated disc that works to strengthen core muscles and improve both posture and stability when seated.
By de-stabilising the sitting surface, your body is required to perform continuous micro-movements in order to stay balanced and upright. These movements help to strengthen your core muscles, which are essential to providing the support needed to maintain a correct posture.
We all know that sitting in one position for prolonged periods of time is bad for our health. The Posture Cushion overcomes this by encouraging active sitting and engaging the postural muscles.
Active sitting is essentially about staying in motion - it's this motion that helps to avoid tight muscles by keeping our body dynamic.
When sitting on the Posture Cushion our body is forced to readjust itself in order to stay balanced and keep the head level to simplify vision processing. This means that our muscles are constantly being worked throughout the day as they compensate for the shift in weight.
By using the Posture Cushion for even just a couple of weeks you will soon begin to see a change in both your posture and core strength.
We recommend that the Posture Cushion is initially used for short bursts of time (approximately 30 minutes).
Trains your body to adopt a positive posture
As your body becomes accustomed to your improved and strengthened postural muscles you will no doubt feel better, more confident and healthier. Over time, you will also find that you will retain this healthy seated posture, even during periods when not using the Posture Cushion.
The Posture Cushion can also be used as a training aid to help improve balance and coordination whilst standing. By standing on the Posture Cushion you can effectively work on your core as well as strengthen the muscles and joints in your knees and ankles.
1. HOW DOES THE POSTURE CUSHION WORK?
The Posture Cushion works by making your body perform continuous micro-movements to stay balanced. These movements engage your core muscles while you sit and strengthen your back muscles. With active sitting, you naturally sit more upright as you are more aware of your posture and therefore your posture over an extended period (2-3 weeks) will dramatically improve.
2. CAN I USE THE POSTURE CUSHION WHILST DRIVING?
We would recommend not to use the cushion whilst driving, the reason being is that you should not be unbalanced in the car. The Posture Cushion is perfect accessory for your office chair, at home on the sofa or even used as an exercise balance cushion for workouts.
3. HOW LONG SHOULD I USE THE POSTURE CUSHION FOR?
By using the Posture Cushion for even just a couple of weeks, you will soon begin to see a change in both your posture and core strength. We recommend that the Posture Cushion is initially used for short bursts of time (approximately 30 minutes).
