Anti-thrust cushions are specialized cushions designed to address pelvic positioning and stability issues, particularly for individuals who use wheelchairs or who spend extended periods sitting. These cushions are specifically engineered to prevent forward sliding or “thrusting” of the pelvis, which can lead to poor posture, discomfort, and pressure ulcers.

Key features of anti-thrust cushions include:

Contoured Shape: The cushion is often contoured to match the natural curvature of the pelvis, providing support and promoting proper alignment.

Pelvic Stability: Anti-thrust cushions typically have firm or semi-firm foam materials to support the pelvis and prevent it from sliding forward.

Raised Front Edge: The front edge of the cushion is often raised to provide a barrier that helps to resist forward movement of the pelvis.

Pressure Redistribution: Like other wheelchair cushions, anti-thrust cushions may also feature pressure redistribution properties to reduce the risk of pressure sores and promote comfort during prolonged sitting.


Proper Fit: Ensure that the anti-thrust cushion is the correct size and shape for the individual using it. A properly fitting cushion will provide optimal support and comfort.

Regular Monitoring: Regularly check the positioning and condition of the cushion to ensure that it continues to provide adequate support and stability. Make adjustments as needed to maintain proper alignment.

Trial Period: It might take time to adjust to using the anti-thrust cushion, especially if you are transitioning from a different type of seating support. Monitor your comfort and make any necessary adjustments during this trial period.
