How To Order

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.

Recommendation: Synthesis Tilt Recliner with Huntington’s Special Padding (HSP) package

"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.

"Broda chairs and wheelchairs make it easier for caregivers to provide optimal care with less stress on the client and the caregiver. For example, easier transfers, easier re-positioning, less maintenance, and easier mobility."

Carole P., MS/OTR |Easton, MD

"Prior to the Broda chair [Synthesis Tilt Recliner], we had tried numerous positioning devices for the resident, which were ineffective. She had a tendency to lean forward and to one side. Once using the Broda chair [Synthesis Tilt Recliner], the resident's posture immediately improved. She, herself, was very thankful because she was "so comfortable". The staff couldn't believe the result. Besides this resident sitting in proper alignment, she could still self-propel with her feet."
