The recommended chairs require the addition of Broda’s Huntington’s Special Padding (HSP) package. Broda’s unique features and functionality combined with our Comfort Tension Seating® system provides safe, stable positioning for the patient, enhancing patient safety, comfort, and quality of life. Optimum safety and functionality withstand severe agitation and involuntary movements.
The Elite Tilt Recliner and other Broda chairs are recognized by the Huntington’s Disease Society of America. See more information in the HDSA’s Caregiver Guide to Mid to Late Stage Huntington’s Disease.
CASE STUDY James, a 57 year old man with late stage HD [Huntington’s Disease], has been using a standard manual wheelchair in the facility where he resides but due to multiple falls he required a new device for safety and to provide functional mobility. A Broda wheelchair was recommended to help James remain upright and allow him continued independence with functional mobility rather than risk propulsion from a standard chair.
