Contoured Cushion Components

In our last blog focused on seating and positioning, we took a look at cushion geometry. Today we're continuing the conversation about cushion geometry with a focus on the different components of contoured cushions.
The five components are:

Adductors: Tapered or Straight
Medial Abductor
Posterior Pelvic Well
Anti-Thrust
Wedge

Straight Adductors

Can be rear, front, or entire length of cushion
