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.

"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."

"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."

"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."

We have not had any skin breakdown with our residents in the 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.

"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."
