CASE STUDY James, a 57 year old man with late stage HD [Huntington’s Disease], has been using a standard manual wheelchair in the facility where he resides but due to multiple falls he required a new device for safety and to provide functional mobility. A Broda wheelchair was recommended to help James remain upright and allow him continued independence with functional mobility rather than risk propulsion from a standard chair.

Recommendation: Synthesis Tilt Recliner with Huntington’s Special Padding (HSP) package

For individuals at risk of skin breakdown Broda’s Comfort Tension Seating® system, is the key to providing a comfortable, functional chair.

Each strap of the system conforms individually to the person’s body, thus suspending weight across multiple points and dramatically reduces the amount of pressure on a person’s body (especially peak pressures).

 

Fall Risks

The straps are firm enough to provide the necessary support for hours of sitting comfort, and the memory retention system enables the straps to return to their original shape within seconds.

This strapping system prevents the “bottoming out” effect, which occurs with standard wheelchair seating surfaces. It also allows for superior airflow and circulation, reducing and dispersing heat and moisture buildup that often leads to skin breakdown.

Recommendation: Synthesis Tilt Recliner,  Synthesis Transport Chair or Vanguard® Tilt Recliner for bariatrics.
