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.

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.
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
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.
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.
