How To Order
PRESSURE RELIEF
Skin Breakdown & Decreased Skin Integrity
  • Facilitates position changes associated with pressure relief for individuals with limited range of motion
  • Provides a change in position for those who cannot independently shift their weight
  • Tilting the seating surface allows for repositioning which moves the weight and pressure away from the critical areas under the pelvis
  • Proper repositioning improves blood flow, oxygenation, and retention of the skin tissue which is vital for maintaining skin integrity
POSITIONING
Decreased Postural Control & Decreased Head/Neck Control
  • Posterior tilt can reduce the effects of gravity on the trunk and upper body, which provides a more functional and proper upright posture
  • Facilitates more practical use of the upper extremities
  • Facilitates safe, effective positioning of the patient following transfer allowing adjustment of posture from the tilted position
  • Eliminates shear displacement (sliding out of place) during position changes
  • Posterior tilt efficiently opens the diaphragm allowing for more significant expansion of the lungs resulting in improved oxygenation, blood flow, and organ function
  • Facilitates positioning for comfort, pain management and/or pain relief
ENDURANCE
Function Mobility Related Activities of Daily Living
  • Proper positioning and weight distribution increases sitting tolerance throughout the day
  • Positioning the patient in an activity ready position improving the patient’s ability to socialize and engage with their surroundings
  • Increase endurance for completion of activities of daily living by placing the patient in an action ready position
  • Provides proper seating alignment decreasing patient fatigue and postural deviations
  • Posterior tilt enhances visual orientation, speech, alertness, and arousal
MEDICAL FUNCTIONS
Respiratory Digestive Physiological
  • Obtaining adequate posture through the use of tilt allows for improved function of the respiratory system
  • Posterior tilt facilitates proper digestion and decreases the risk of aspiration and other complications of the GI Tract
  • Improves physiological processes such as orthostatic hypotension, respiration, and bowel and bladder function
  • Manages symptoms related to *edema (swelling) of the extremities
CAREGIVER BENEFITS
  • Aids in the completion of activities of daily living; feeding, bathing, and toileting needs
  • Allows for frequent repositioning of individuals throughout the day
  • Improved seating comfort allows for fewer transfers during the day

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.
