How To Order

Broda’s proprietary Comfort Tension Seating® conforms to the body, providing enhanced pressure redistribution and long-term seating comfort. Each strap conforms individually to the patients’ body, thus suspending the weight of the patient across multiple points. Comfort Tension Seating® works in conjunction with tilt-in-space seating system to provide therapeutic pressure relief, enhance postural support and maintain skin integrity.

“We have not had any skin breakdown with our residents in the Broda Elite Tilt Recliner since we started using them four years ago” Jaclyn A.
OTR/L, Director of Occupational Therapy

The seating base used in this system is a heavy gauge polyvinyl chloride strapping installed under tension and riveted to the seating frame of the chair. With memory retention, the straps return to their original shape within seconds providing consistent seating comfort and pressure redistribution.

Benefits          

Comfort

Broda’s special seat strapping allows air circulation to help reduce heat and moisture build-up. The straps adjust to the size and weight of the individual, providing individualized fit and superior comfort. The system evenly distributes patient weight across multiple points, improving oxygenation and blood flow aiding in the maintenance of skin integrity

Long-Term Durability

The strapping used in Comfort Tension Seating® is manufactured exclusively for Broda and will retain its firmness and resiliency over an extended period. The straps are fungicide and ultraviolet protected for enhanced durability and extended lifetime.

Easy Maintenance

The straps are easy to clean off, and the chair is easily disinfected with a towel soaked in hot water and detergent. Damage to the seating surface of traditional Geri-chairs requires the purchase of expensive cushioning or whole new chairs. 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.

"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."

"We were at a loss with one of our residents who has frontal lobe dementia. He had trunk lean, stopped feeding himself and appeared to be in pain. We attempted to address the pain; however, any medication we used caused him to have increased behaviors. Since using Broda's Synthesis Tilt Recliner, he has been feeding himself, he smiles and laughs like he used to and is showing no signs of pain anymore. Thank you for producing a great product that brings the quality of life back to our residents!"

"Broda chairs and wheelchairs make it easier for caregivers to provide optimal care with less stress on the client and the caregiver. For example, easier transfers, easier re-positioning, less maintenance, and easier mobility."

Carole P., MS/OTR |Easton, MD

"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.
