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

"My mother has osteoporosis and arthritis with muscle weakness and bone and joint discomfort- Since she received this new Latitude 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."

"The Broda Revive Tilt and Recline Shower Commode meets our patient's needs. He indicates he feels safe and his own care each morning. He is safe at all times while in the chair, and the caregivers are safe at all times while providing his care. All staff report being pleased with the commode and find it much easier to assist him."

Pam, Director of Nursing

“There are many excellent features on Broda’s chairs and the best way to start to help you clients is to begin building a relationship with this company. For the right client, Broda’s chairs are the perfect solution.”

Richard W., OTR/L, ATP |New York, USA

"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."

"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."
