How To Order

For individuals at risk of skin breakdown the 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 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.

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

"Our gliders [Tranquille Auto-Locking Gliders] are always disappearing out of our common areas and end up in our patients' rooms We don't know how they get there, but they love them and prefer sitting in them more than anything else. One patient with a back injury told us this was the only chair he could sit comfortably in. He wanted to take it home with him after his rehabilitation was complete."

"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."

"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

“There are many excellent features on Broda’s chairs and the best way to start to help your clients is to begin building a relationship with this company. For the right client, Broda’s chairs are the perfect solution.”

"Prior to using Broda's Elite Tilt Recliner, there were issues with safety for getting the resident out of the chair, safety for staff lifting her in, either manual/mechanical; comfort, keeping her in the chair, inability to get her body over the sides.

The chair sides raise to prevent her from throwing her legs/body over the sides; same with the extra padding along her leg area that is raised. The tilt puts her buttock in a comfortable position, but also makes it extremely difficult to push out. The chair sides also swing out to assist with ease of the mechanical tilt.

Broda's chair has given her a reason to want to get up and she enjoys her chair now. When we are using the mechanical lift she remains calm because she wants to get in it and will stay longer safely and comfortably! Staff can safely lift and position her without worrying about injuring themselves."
