Comfort Tension SeatingWHY BRODA?

BRODA’s proprietary Comfort Tension Seating® system conforms to the body, providing enhanced pressure redistribution and long term seating comfort. The CTS strapping technology aids in maintaining skin integrity as it creates improved air flow resulting in decreased heat and moisture build up.

Broda’s CTS strapping technology eliminates any chance for patient discomfort from “bottoming out” (hard pan chairs with a padded seat) or experiencing harmful pressure from a sling type seat.  Simply stated, BRODA’s innovative design helps reduce the cost and risk associated with skin breakdown.

 

Comfort Tension Seating provides:

  • Individualized fit for superior comfort
  • Conforming support for proper pelvic positioning 
  • Improved air flow, decreasing heat and moisture build up
  • Accommodation for conditions such as Kyphosis and Lordosis
  • Memory retention allows the straps to return to their original shape within seconds
  • Pressure redistribution that aids in maintaining skin integrity even when seated for extended periods of time
 

Comfort Tension Seating works in conjunction with tilt in space to maximize pressure redistribution

BRODA’s industry’s leading combination of tilt and recline with Comfort Tension Seating maximizes pressure redistribution. With models offering up to 45° of tilt and 90°of recline, BRODA provides unrivaled clinical and functional benefits for improved outcomes and enhanced quality of life.

 

Seat Cushions in conjunction with CTS strapping technology

BRODA offers one inch foam seat and back pad covers standard on most models. These cushions were designed to provide enhanced comfort as they work in conjunction with the Comfort Tension Strapping. For those individuals who require additional supportive positioning, BRODA offers the BRODA app (additional positioning package). Designed exclusively to work with BRODA chairs, the app seating system helps optimize individual immersion, alignment and pressure redistribution by working in harmony with our Comfort Tension Seating®.

 

Durable and Easy to Maintain

Comfort Tension Seating is manufactured exclusively for BRODA and will retain its firmness and resiliency over a long period of time.  The straps are fungicide and ultraviolet protected in order to enhance the length of their lifetime.

Straps are easy to wipe off and the chair can be disinfected with a bleach solution or common healthcare cleaners. Damage to the seating surface of traditional positioning or geri-chairs requires the purchase of expensive cushioning or a completely new chair. On BRODA chairs, individual straps that are damaged, can be cut and replaced on-site without taking the chair out of service for more than a few minutes.

Decreased Skin Integrity/Skin Breakdown

The Comfort Tension Seating® System prevents the bottoming out effect which occurs with standard
wheelchair seating surfaces. Each strap conforms individually to the person’s body, thus suspending
the weight of the person across multiple points. This distributes the individual’s weight more evenly    
and greatly reduces the amount of pressure being placed on any one area. The even distribution of the
patient’s weight allows for decreased pressure and improved blood flow allowing for greater retention
of tissue health which is vital for maintaining skin integrity. Our Comfort Tension Seating® system 
also allows for improved air flow which aids in decreasing the buildup of heat and moisture as well as
decreasing the development of yeast and bacteria while improving seating comfort.

Recommended: All Models

 

Falls

BRODA’s tilt in space seating options provide postural stability and support for those who cannot maintain an upright posture when seated. Tilting the seating surface in a posterior direction maximizes the body’s weight and gravity, allowing the patient to remain seated, upright and engaged for functional activities. Utilizing the length adjustable legrest and adjustable footrest angles can greatly decrease sliding, dragging of feet and injury of the lower extremities. The substantial seat depth and height adjustable armrests provide additional postural support promoting a midline posture.Tilting the patient in a posterior direction provides proper seating alignment, decreasing patient fatigue and postural deviations. With the decrease in postural deviations and improvement of postural support and stability falls can be greatly reduced.

Recommended: All Models

 

Falls (individuals who self-propel)

BRODA tilt in space mobility wheelchairs are designed to accommodate patients who self – propel and
require the benefits of tilt in space. With a shortened seat height and front pivot point our mobility chairs
provide proper foot to floor placement which enables individuals to be placed in an ergonomically correct
position for self-propulsion. Tilting the seating surface in a posterior direction maximizes the body’s
weight and gravity, allowing the patient to remain seated, upright and engaged for functional activities. By design, our mobility chairs allow for safe self-propulsion that aids in decreasing falls while providing a sense of independence for the user.

Recommended: Sashay Pedal Chair (Model 48), Latitude Pedal Rocker (Model 48R)

 

Agitation/Involuntary Movement

BRODA’s industry’s leading combination of tilt and recline provides exceptional comfort, safety and stability for the user. Built with durable 16 gauge tubular steel and recognized by the Huntington’s Disease Society of America, BRODA’s tilt and recline positioning chairs provide a safe supportive environment that is designed to withstand constant, vigorous, involuntary movements. The substantial seat depth, height adjustable arm rests and Comfort Tension Seating® come together to provide additional postural stability and safe supportive positioning decreasing the need for restraints. For additional safety, gas springs create shock absorption helping to prevent injury. BRODA’s proprietary Comfort Tension Seating System® and optional Huntington’s padding package provides enhanced safety and comfort for the user. 

 Recommended: Synthesis Tilt Recliner

 

Decreased Postural Control (trunk/head/neck)

Offering models with up to 45° of tilt and 90°of recline, BRODA chairs provide unsurpassed comfort and positioning abilities.  Combining the use of tilt and recline provides the most effective solution for treating those with decreased postural control. Tilting the seating surface in a posterior direction can reduce the effects of gravity on one’s trunk/upper body, which facilitates a more functional and proper upright posture while reclining the seating surface greatly reduces seating pressures overall. Obtaining and maintaining proper posture also assists with greater and more functional use of the upper extremities. For additional postural support, BRODA chairs provide adjustable armrests and adjustable upper lateral supports that aid in decreasing lateral lean and other postural deviations. The tilt in space feature facilitates positioning for comfort, pain management and pain relief. Posterior tilt effectively opens the diaphragm allowing for greater thoracic expansion resulting in improved oxygenation, blood flow and organ function. The clinical and functional benefits of tilt and recline can effectively aid in improving patient outcomes and quality of life.

Recommended: Synthesis Tilt Recliner or Midline Tilt Recliner (Model MID)

 

Bariatric Seating Needs

Bariatric care is elevated to a new level with the Vanguard Tilt Recliner. Designed specifically for the unique needs of bariatric individuals, the Vanguard Tilt Recliner offers of up to 30° of Posterior and 10° of Anterior foot pump activated tilt. Foot pump activated tilt allows for a safer more comfortable experience during transfers. For additional assistance with transfers, the Vanguard Tilt Recliner offers adjustable hand grips to assist with standing from the seated positon, swing away removable armrests for full access to the chair and the solid oversized leg rest with spring assists for smooth elevation.

Seating for Safe Patient Handling  Download pdf 


Established in 1981, BRODA manufactures high quality tilt in space positioning chairs that provide individuals with the highest level of comfort for the highest quality of care.

 

By combining BRODA’s Comfort Tension Seating® with infinitely adjustable tilt and recline, BRODA chairs provide safe, comfortable long term seating that can dramatically reduce the amount of falls that residents face.  BRODA chairs work well with “No-Lift” and “Fall Prevention” programs making them the ideal chair to integrate into your safe patient handling practices.

 

 

  • BRODA offers tilt, recline and legrest adjustments that are operated by gas cylinders. The cylinders help to reduce the amount of lifting force required by caregivers, thus helping to provide safe, frequent repositioning while reducing the risk of injury to the patient and caregiver.  

 

  • Both the Synthesis Tilt Recliner and Midline Tilt Recliner provide a full recline position which allows individuals to rest in the chair and allows caregivers to change incontinence products while the individual remains in the chair. This means less transfers!

 

  • The Synthesis Tilt Recliner and other Elite models have removable wings (upper supports) and swing away/removable arms, which allow for safe and effective slide transfers.  The footrest flips up accommodating safe stand pivot transfers as well as allowing the use of patient lifts.

 

  • The legrest extends independently with the recline function of the Synthesis Tilt Recliner. The independent elevating legrest helps the individual maintain position as they are being positioned and repositioned throughout the day.

 

  • BRODA chairs work well with most mechanical lifts. When using the deep wedge infinitely adjustable seat tilt, you can accommodate various positioning needs. The combination of tilt and recline accommodates most flexion limitations and postural deviations such as but not limited to, slumping, sliding, falling forward, lateral lean and head drop.

 

  • BRODA chairs provide supportive positioning through a combination of tilt, recline, adjustable legrest angle, wings with shoulder bolsters and height adjustable arms. Supportive positioning decreases postural deviations enhancing patient safety while facilitating safe frequent repositioning throughout the day.

 

  • The Synthesis Transport Chair allows for safe occupant transport in an accessible vehicle with the ability to keep the individual in the same chair for care and transport.

                  Seat Tilt

Seat Tilt

Seat tilt or “tilt-in-space” allows individuals to change their seat angle orientation in relation to the ground while maintaining a constant seat to back angle and seat to legrest angle.

 

Broda chairs provide up to 45° of infinitely adjustable seat tilt, allowing for safe effective positioning. Our infinitely adjustable seat tilt makes obtaining the individuals desired position possible decreasing the need for restraints. Seat tilt allows for safe, frequent repositioning throughout the range of tilt provided.

 

Seat tilt provides postural stability and support for those who cannot maintain an upright posture when seated. Tilting the seating surface in a posterior direction maximizes the body’s weight and gravity, allowing the patient to remain seated, upright and engaged for functional activities. Posterior tilt of the seating surface shifts the weight and pressure away from critical areas under the pelvis. Tilting the patient in a posterior direction provides proper seating alignment, decreasing patient fatigue and postural deviations. Posterior tilt effectively opens the diaphragm allowing for greater thoracic expansion resulting in improved oxygenation, blood flow and organ function. The tilt in space feature facilitates positioning for comfort, pain management and pain relief. With the decrease in postural deviations and improvement of postural support and stability falls can be greatly reduced.

 

 The seat tilt is operated by the caregiver. To use the seat tilt, it is best to have at least 75 lbs in the chair, as this makes it easier to tilt the chair. It may also be helpful to recline the chair slightly, before tilting it, as this lowers the back giving the caregiver more leverage for tilting. It is also important to adjust the seat tilt at a minimum of every 2 hours or as often as needed, to help relieve and redistribute pressure. (For additional Seat Tilt instructions, see User Manual.)

 

 

 

          Back Recline

Back recline

 Back recline allows individuals to change seat to back angle while maintaining constant seat angle with respect to the ground.

 

 Broda chairs provide up to 90° of infinitely adjustable seat tilt, allowing for safe effective positioning. Our infinitely adjustable back recline makes obtaining the individuals desired position possible decreasing the need for restraints.  Back recline allows for safe, frequent repositioning throughout the range of recline provided.

 

 Combining the use of tilt and recline provides the most effective solution for treating those with decreased postural control. Tilting the seating surface in a posterior direction can reduce the effects of gravity on one’s trunk/upper body,  which facilitates a more functional and proper upright posture while reclining the seating surface greatly reduces seating pressures overall. With infinite adjustability throughout the range of recline, most hip flexion limitations can be  accommodated.

 

 The back recline is operated by the caregiver.  When reclining the chair, it may be recommended to have the seat tilted to prevent the resident from sliding out of position. It is important to adjust the back recline at a minimum of every 2  hours and as often as needed to help relieve and redistribute pressure. (For additional instructions, see User Manual)

Medical Justification Letter - Broda CS 385 Commode Shower Chair

Resident with Multiple Sclerosis

AuthorTamara Reynolds, OTR/L
Published03 September 2008

Paul was a 54 year-old male who had been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis for about 20 years. He had been institutionalized in a long-term care facility for about 10 years, and had declined to the point of near-immobility. Paul had short-term memory loss but was very social. At on time, he had been the hallway “ambassador” for his unit, greeting people as they entered. He had attended almost every social activity and outing. 

Paul’s condition declined to the point where he required a mechanical lift for transfers. He was unable to propel his wheelchair. His skin integrity was so fragile that the decision was made by nursing that he could only get out of bed for one meal every other day: any more time spent in his wheelchair would result in a pressure sore. 

Paul’s social interactions were extremely limited, and he resorted to hollering out at people as they walked by his room or pushing his call button frequently to attain social contact. He was unable to feed himself while semi-reclined in bed, and had begun to choke on his food. In one episode his choking was so severe that he became cyanotic and was sent to the emergency room. The nursing staff obtained an OT consult, specifically requesting a Broda chair. Although Paul had been unable to propel a standard wheelchair, it was felt that he would be able to propel a Broda chair, which moves with less effort. Therefore, the chair was ordered with big wheels as well as a basic padding package. Paul got his “Cadillac”, as he called it. 

The result of having this chair was that Paul was able to be out of bed for meals every day without skin breakdown. He was able to sit in the hallway and socialize, rather than be confined to his bed, sometimes facing away from the door. He was able to resume feeding himself because he had the strength to do so while sitting upright, and he was able to go off of his unit for social activities. Paul’s breathing improved, outlook improved, and the staff was less frustrated. Paul was even able to propel his wheelchair about 50 feet, using airline tubing wrapped around the push rims to improve his grip function.

 

Broda Tilt Recliner for Residents with Pressure Sores

AuthorTamara Reynolds, OTR/L
Published03 September 2008

Jane P. was a 64 year old woman who had COPD, claustrophobia, and decreased mobility. Because of her COPD and claustrophobia, she refused to sleep in her bed, and instead, insisted on staying up in a wheelchair all day and night. The nursing staff repeatedly documented her non-compliance for not returning to bed to relieve the pressure from her bottom. The physical therapist spent several weeks adjusting her pressure relief cushion, and adjusting other aspects of her positioning in an attempt to diminish the pressure areas that were developing on her buttock. She had limited mobility and sweated profusely. In addition, the amount of time she spent in an upright position was nearly 24 hours a day.

The physical therapist approached me and told me his dilemma of trying this particular pressure relief without good success, and asked for my input. My recommendation was to try a Broda chair. Initially, the staff refused because she was cognitively intact and able to ambulate several steps, and they felt that she was too “high level” for a Broda. Additionally, they were concerned that she may attempt to stand unassisted from the chair, and because of the case in chair rolling, she might fall to the floor. However, eventually her bottom became so inflamed that any suggestion was attempted. 

The OT evaluation included a skin inspection. Her bottom was by far the worst case of pressure I had ever seen. She had a reddened area that was approximately a square foot in area, non-blanchable. The center of this was a six inch wide, deep purple area that contained multiple open areas. Her skin was too warm, and moisture was obviously an issue. In an effort to be objective and demonstrate what worked and what did not have any effect, the red area was outlined with a black marker. A Broda chair with both tilt and recline was provided as a trial chair, and adjusted to fit her short leg length. The next day, I went in to check her comfort and her skin. The reddened area had diminished by approximately 2 inches all the way around. Some of the red perimeter, now much smaller, was blanchable. The deep purple area had all faded to red. All of this happened in just one day of proper positioning. Best of all, she reported that she was much more comfortable.

 

Resident with Pressure Sores

AuthorTamara Reynolds, OTR/L
Published03 September 2008

Mrs. M. was one of my first experiences with a Broda chair. She had a Broda chair that was about 6 years old, and a cable needed replacing. Mrs. M. was in the intermediate stages of dementia, and had very limited mobility. She required a mechanical lift for transfers, and was unable to independently reposition her weight while sitting. She was incontinent and wore a plastic-coated incontinence product. She had a history of skin breakdown, and about every six months developed a pressure area on her buttocks which required her to limit her time out of bed.

I called the Broda representative and he was happy to come fix the cable for me. While he was there, I told him about the problem with her skin breakdown. His response was that she should not be using the pressure relief cushion that was in her chair. I was reluctant about removing the cushion, with the thought that this particular cushion was the “golden standard” in pressure reduction. However, he insisted that if I trusted the chair and removed the cushion, she would stop breaking down. I took the cushion away, and kept track of her for the next 2 years (after which I moved from the area, and no longer worked in that facility.) During the time that I continued to track her, she never had another issue with skin breakdown.

 

The Right Equipment, The Right Environment: An independent assessment improves Mr W's care

Author: Rehab and Community Care Medicine Spring 2008
Published: 15 October 2008

Mr. W. is a 43-year-old male who was in a serious motor vehicle collision in 2004. He sustained severe traumatic brain injury, costal and lower extremity fractures, and internal injuries. He remained in a coma for two months and was not expected to survive.


Mr. W. in WheelchairTwo months post collision, he was transferred from a large trauma centre to a 25-bed complex continuing care unit in a hospital closer to his family in order to facilitate family visits. Within a month of his transfer, he began to make unexpected progress; he began to breathe independently, was extubated and began attempting to speak. He demonstrated limited active movement in his right upper extremity and hand and was capable of self-feeding and of limited washing and dressing his upper body. However, Mr. W. continued to present with severe cognitive limitations, difficulty with receptive and expressive language, hemispatial visual neglect, and paresis involving all four limbs. He also had flexion contractures of the left upper extremity, hips, knees and spine.

To address Mr. W’s mobility needs, the hospital occupational therapist (OT) and physiotherapist (PT) provided Mr. W. with a wheelchair that enabled him to leave his room and access his hospital floor. However, given that the impairments from his brain injury included impulsivity, impaired judgment, erratic movements, disrupted sleep/wake cycle and a voracious appetite, it was not safe for him to be left unsupervised. Mr. W. was found in potentially unsafe circumstances, including approaching hot meal carts, grabbing medication trays and entering other patient rooms.

Limited by restraints

Due to the staff’s perceptions of Mr. W’s behaviour as agitated and dangerous, chemical and physical restraints were frequently used to manage his activity level. As a result, he was routinely sedated to the point of being unable to communicate or swallow safely. Nursing staff frequently tied his wheelchair to a wall or his bed to impede his mobility. Mr. W. became very frustrated by these restraints and began striking out. Staff were unable to identify the connection between their approach and his behaviour; as a result, they further limited his mobility and independence.

A new assessment

Given that Mr. W’s mobility had created significant difficulty for the unit, his case manager arranged for a thorough seating and mobility assessment.
is family was concerned that he appeared to be very uncomfortable while seated in his current wheelchair.In addition, his family was distressed that he was being tied in his chair, which was tied to the hallway railings or his bed. Given the lack of seating expertise on the unit, an OT from the community was brought in to complete this assessment.

As a result of a thorough assessment, a wheelchair was recommended.
During the second visit, Mr. W. was observed sitting in the prescribed wheelchair in an ideal position and independently propelling in a purposeful manner. However, the nursing staff was very dissatisfied as he had returned to moving about the unit freely. As such, they had returned to using restraints.

During the third visit, Mr. W. was soHeavily sedated that he was unable to sit upright or communicate. Review of his medical chart by the unit staff demonstrated that since the delivery of the new wheelchair, medication prescribed for Mr. W. was routinely administered to manage his “aggression.”

Detailed recommendations

A detailed report was submitted highlighting the challenges on the unit that were affecting Mr. W’s needs.It identified that the main concern was not Mr. W’s seating and mobility needs, but rather that his needs in general could not be addressed appropriately in his current environment.

Fifteen recommendations were made which included provision of a wheelchair and provision of a support worker. In recognition of the unit on which Mr. W. resided and the challenges of the nursing staff, a Broda wheelchair was recommended to enable him to be positioned properly and comfortably without independent mobility. It was anticipated that the Broda chair would eliminate the need to physically or chemically restrain him when he did not have a support worker with him. Training related to Mr. W’s needs was strongly recommended for all unit staff to improve his overall care.

Other recommendations addressed the implementation of services to address his ongoing physical and cognitive limitations and to improve his communication to increase his independence and access to rehabilitation programming. The final recommendation was to transfer Mr. W. to an environment that would support his overall needs.

A change in environment

Upon receipt of the report, funding approval was provided to Mr. W. for a manual wheelchair and a Broda chair when he did not have individual supervision. Funding was also provided for the services of a support worker for several hours, four days per week.

A plan is currently being devised to arrange for Mr. W’s discharge to his family home with the implementation of environmental modifications. Prior to discharge, training for the family and any involved support workers will be needed to ensure a positive provision of care that addresses all areas of his daily living and enables him to achieve maximum independence.
