Broda’s Encore Rehab Wheelchair is a new level of seating customization with a universal seating system now shipping on-chair with the Matrx® Seating Series. The Encore Rehab allows clinicians to customize this Broda wheelchair to meet the seating and positioning needs of each client.
The Encore enables users to still self-propel via pedaling with their feet increasing their mobility and independence. A Hemi style low floor-to-seat height combined with ergonomic front pivot tilt provides ergonomic proper foot-on-floor placement. The Encore Rehab enables individuals for efficient movement and allows them to continue to socialize and engage with their surroundings, maintaining their quality of life.
The Encore Rehab comes standard with a dynamic rocking feature that has been seen to reduce depression, anxiety, and even reduction in pain specifically for those with Dementia or Alzheimer’s conditions (source). The dynamic rocking feature is caregiver activated and the tension adjustable for patient safety.
Broda’s up to 33˚ of infinitely adjustable tilt-in-space combined with a proper seating provides therapeutic pressure redistribution aiding in the treatment of pressure ulcers, and pain management enhancing a user’s comfort and quality of life.
