Best Wheelchairs for ALS
When it comes to finding the best wheelchair for ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease), there is no one-size-fits-all solution. However, a Broda wheelchair is often considered to be the ideal option for those diagnosed with ALS.
Broda wheelchairs provide maximum comfort and support for people with ALS. Our unique features include our one-of-a-kind Comfort Tension Seating®. Comfort Tension Seating® provides a large surface area that equally distributes pressure, decreasing the risk of pressure injuries. The adjustable leg rests allow you to customize your level of comfort. Additionally, Broda wheelchairs are easy to maneuver, and many have WC19 certified, crash-tested transportation packages. These options make Broda an ideal choice for people with ALS who need a wheelchair that is easy to transport.
Mobility for Lou Gehrig’s Disease
As the disease progresses, weakness can limit mobility. With the right wheelchair and support, you can continue to socialize and remain active and comfortable. So, if you or someone you love is living with ALS, consider investing in a Broda wheelchair for maximum comfort, support, and mobility.
Falls can also be a concern for those with Lou Gehrig’s disease. Broda wheelchairs have built-in fall prevention features to lower this risk. Our swing-away arm and leg supports can be gently placed to the side while the user is transferred to and from the chair, leaving a wide space for them to move. While the user is seated, the wheelchair can be tilted and reclined to help the occupant keep a comfortable and secure posture. Additionally, our unique Comfort Tension Seating® molds to each user’s body, creating a supportive, anti-slip seating surface.
Easy Hygiene Routines
Hygiene is an important part of care that can be challenging for those with ALS. Our Revive Shower Commode offers a comfortable, dignified bathing experience. The Revive features our Comfort Tension Seating® and the full spectrum of positioning features for bathing hard-to-reach areas. With the Revive, caregivers can help their patients with muscle weakness stay well-positioned and safe, which decreases stress during their hygiene routine. The Revive is also available for bariatric patients of up to 800 lbs.
Durable & High Quality
Broda manufactures each wheelchair in North America with premium materials. The frames are constructed with 16-gague, powder-coated tubular steel, built to outlast any other wheelchair. We also offer an industry-leading 10-year frame warranty and a 2-year warranty on all wheelchair parts. You can be confident that your Broda wheelchair will last for as long as you need it, with minimal repairs.
