Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Broda gliders can help children, teens, and adults with ADHD focus at school, at work, and at home. The Aspire Pediatric Glider and the Tranquille Adult Glider are the perfect active seating for ADHD. They provide stimulation for increased attention, or calming movement that can be soothing when the user needs a break. The gliding motion can also be locked into a stationary mode, if necessary. Designed for dynamic or calming seating, the Aspire and Tranquille gliders provide stimulation when desired. Similarly, they can be used to soothe when the user needs a break. Research has shown that rocking may decrease stereotypical behavior.1
Active Seating for ADHD
Individuals with ADHD can substantially benefit from just the right balance of stimulation.2 Moderate activity, such as rocking back and forth in a behavioral glider chair from Broda, can help people with ADHD to regulate their energy into one focused activity. This is especially true for children with ADHD. A Broda glider can reduce psychological and physiological discomfort from boredom. As a result, users demonstrate reduced distractive and destructive behaviors.
Perfect for Educational Settings
The Broda Aspire children’s glider is perfect for schools, tutoring centers, home schooling, and any other educational environment. The calming, rhythmic motion helps children focus and reduces unwanted movement and distractions. Subsequently, users show improvement in concentration and learning success. The glider is also auto-locking, which makes it safe for children to use independently. With the Broda Aspire Pediatric Glider, parents, teachers, and caregivers can provide their child with a tool that will help them succeed.
Cleaning & Sanitation Made Easy
All Broda glider cushions and components are fluid-resistant. Because of this, they are easy to clean in case of an accident. It’s quick and simple to clean a glider after mealtime spillage, contagious illnesses, and any other mess. Furthermore, your user’s manual will even come with cleaning tips for your specific glider model.
Durable & High Quality Active Seating for ADHD
Each Broda wheelchair is made with strong, high-quality materials that can withstand destructive behaviors, such as scratching, hitting, or tearing. They also hold up well to everyday wear. The frames are constructed with 16-gague, powder-coated tubular steel, built to outlast any other active seating solution. Broda also offers an industry-leading 10-year frame warranty and a 2-year warranty on all glider parts. You can be confident that your Broda glider will last for as long as you need it with minimal repairs.
