She loves the chair!!! Review by Nina
I just spoke with the Therapist at the facility. She loves the chair!!! I asked if the patient is still rearing back and she said not as much. She said he used to do it every day after breakfast and dinner. She just checked on him and he is sleeping comfortably in his chair. I also asked what the differences were between the first and the second chair. Her response was "The mag wheels and having it come to them already adjusted to the patient’s needs."

Thank you,
Nina Miller

..the resident has now been walking again Review by Kelly
We were at a loss with one of our residents who has frontal lobe dementia. OT was unable to adjust his wheelchair properly to accommodate for his trunk lean he had been exhibiting. He had stopped walking and was discharged from restorative. He also had stopped feeding himself. He appeared to be in pain. We attempted to address the pain however any medication we used caused him to have increased behaviors. We knew this was all caused by the positioning in the wheelchair he was in. OT finally called a Broda rep and they came up to fit the resident with a new wheelchair. Since then, the resident has now been walking again. He is feeding himself. He smiles and laughs like he used to. He is showing no signs of pain anymore. Thank you for producing a great product that brings quality of life back to our residents!

Since she received this new Broda Pedal Rocker she has total comfort and less anxiety Review by Elaine
My mother has osteoporosis and arthritis with muscle weakness and bone and joint discomfort- Since she received this new Broda 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.
