The target becomes weightless
- "Harry heard the cart smash into pieces against the passage wall, heard Hermione shriek something and felt himself glide back towards the ground as though weightless, landing painlessly on the rock floor."
The Cushioning Charm (incantation unknown) is a charm that makes the target weightless; therefore, it could be used on an individual to cushion their fall, hence the spell's name.
