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.

"The Broda Revive Tilt and Recline Shower Commode meets our patient's needs. He indicates he feels safe and his own care each morning. He is safe at all times while in the chair, and the caregivers are safe at all times while providing his care. All staff report being pleased with the commode and find it much easier to assist him."

Pam, Director of Nursing

"As a Social Worker in a long term care setting I want to ensure my residents have the ultimate in comfort. Upon actually getting to test one myself, I realize Broda is the ultimate in comfort for any geriatric population including ours. As the number of Broda's chairs grow, so does the comfort and improved skin integrity of our residents."

“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.”

"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."
