BRODA products are known for meeting difficult seating needs and challenges such as slumping, sliding and poor lateral support.
For individuals at risk for skin breakdown the BRODA Comfort Tension Seating® system, is the key to providing a comfortable, functional chair.
Each strap of the system conforms individually to the person's body, thus suspending weight across multiple points and greatly reduces the amount of pressure on a person's body (especially peak pressures).
The straps are firm enough to provide necessary support for hours of sitting comfort, and the memory retention system enables the straps to return to their original shape within seconds.
This strapping system prevents the "bottoming out" effect, which occurs with standard wheelchair seating surfaces. It also allows for superior airflow and circulation, reducing and dispersing heat and moisture buildup that often leads to skin breakdown.
