How To Order

For individuals at risk of skin breakdown Broda’s 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 dramatically 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.

 

Recommendation: Synthesis Tilt Recliner,  Synthesis Transport Chair or Vanguard® Tilt Recliner for bariatrics.

"My mother has osteoporosis and arthritis with muscle weakness and bone and joint discomfort- Since she received this new Latitude Pedal Rocker she has total comfort and less anxiety with increased mobility with the hopes of muscle and bone strengthening as she lost her ability to ambulate more than a few steps on her good days these last few months. She is legally blind seeing only light and dark these last 2 years. She just celebrated her 96th birthday and lived alone until age 93-This chair has met her very important needs of comfort, safety, strengthening, mobility."

“What a difference now that Mom is safe and comfortable. It gives me peace of mind to know that she is sitting in one of Broda's chairs. My only regret is that I did not get this chair sooner for her.”

"We were at a loss with one of our residents who has frontal lobe dementia. He had trunk lean, stopped feeding himself and appeared to be in pain. We attempted to address the pain; however, any medication we used caused him to have increased behaviors. Since using Broda's Synthesis Tilt Recliner, he has been feeding himself, he smiles and laughs like he used to and is showing no signs of pain anymore. Thank you for producing a great product that brings the quality of life back to our residents!"

We have not had any skin breakdown with our residents in Broda's Elite Tilt Recliners since we started using them four years ago. We attribute this to the design of the straps allowing for moisture wicking as well as the ability to easily position recline position for pressure relief.
