Providing Comfort for Huntington’s Disease
Broda is dedicated to serving families with Huntington’s disease by providing safe and comfortable seating designed especially for the condition. Our positioning wheelchairs and pedal wheelchairs may be a helpful tool for people with advancing HD that want to enhance their comfort and maintain mobility.
Huntington’s Special Padding Package
Our Huntington’s Special Padding package provides comfortable, stable, protective padding and positioning for patients with severe chorea and involuntary movement. Designed to support individuals with Huntington’s disease, this package enhances comfort and provides a safe sitting environment at home and on the go.
Built to Withstand Chorea Symptoms
Many HD families have trouble with wheelchairs frequently breaking or causing injury to their loved ones due to the movement symptoms that can accompany Huntington’s disease. Our wheelchairs are durable and constructed to withstand involuntary movements. The Huntington’s Special Padding also provides an extra layer of cushioning to protect the head, shoulders, arms, and legs.
Broda manufactures all wheelchairs 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 positioning wheelchair will last a long time, with minimal repairs. The frame is stable and can withstand movement without tipping or breaking.

Built-In Fall Prevention & Comfort
Broda wheelchairs include built-in fall protection to keep you or your loved one steady and safe. Our swing-away arm and leg supports can pivot to the side. As a result, caregivers can transfer the user to and from the chair with no obstacles. During use, our wheelchairs tilt and recline to help the occupant maintain 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
Our Revive Shower Commode offers a comfortable, dignified bathing experience. This shower commode chair tilts and reclines to provide a comfortable bathing experience, even in hard-to-reach areas. The Revive also features our Comfort Tension Seating® for a soft seating surface that molds to the user’s body. With the Revive, caregivers can help their patients with Huntington’s disease enjoy their hygiene routine.
Cleaning & Sanitation Made Easy
All Broda wheelchair cushions and components are fluid-resistant. Caregivers can easily wipe the cushion surface clean in the event of a spill or accident. This cleanability is also beneficial for mealtime messes, incontinence, contagious illnesses, and much more. Additionally, your user’s manual will even include cleaning tips for your specific wheelchair model.
