Exceptional Growth with Broda Transport Wheelchairs

Kevin Hedrington knows what it’s like to experience accessibility challenges. As a disabled veteran, Kevin decided to start a business offering friendly, reliable non-emergency medical transportation for the people of his home city, Battle Creek, Michigan. For his business, he uses the Synthesis Transport Wheelchair. “It fits the need for a travel wheelchair at a quality much higher than other WC19 certified wheelchairs.”

Much Better Than a Geri Chair

Mike McAdams, ATP has over 24 years of experience in skilled nursing and long-term care. “Skilled nursing has too many basic, generic solutions, like geri chairs, that do more harm than good. If you had chairs like Broda offers with infinite adjustability and positioning pads, you’d be able to alter them from patient to patient and meet each person’s specific needs. Each Broda wheelchair lasts for so many years and can be repurposed for multiple patients.”

Saving 75% on NEMT Costs

When it comes to non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) in long-term care, many facility administrators find themselves paying an arm and a leg. This was certainly the case for Brian Murphy during his time as the Executive Director of Mountain View Care Center, a skilled nursing facility (SNF) in Tuscon, AZ. His costs were high and his residents were being transported via gurney rather than in a comfortable transport wheelchair. With Broda, he helped his facility save 75% on NEMT.

Improving Seating Tolerance Like No Other

“With the design of the Comfort Tension Seating® system of the Broda line of wheelchairs, the patient experience and quality of life in our facility has improved with the tolerance of being able to sit for longer periods to enjoy getting rehab care and doing activities away from the bedside. Broda’s Synthesis Positioning Wheelchair with the adjustable seat tilt and back recline features helped these patients develop a tolerance for sitting, a feature unavailable in a standard bedside geriatric or reclining chair.

Broda Kept My Wife Comfortable

My wife was in a nursing home for more than 5 years battling with Alzheimer’s. During her last years, she couldn’t move or get in/out of bed…As a result of her condition, she needed a very comfortable wheelchair. I checked with Medicare and they only covered stiff, straight-up, non-padded wheelchairs. My wife’s caring facility got her a Broda…which I paid a monthly fee for rental. After less than a year, I decided to purchase the wheelchair for my wife to keep her comfortable. During her last year, she was very comfortable in her padded Broda Midline Chair. I would highly recommend this Broda product to anyone who is in need of a very comfortable wheelchair in a nursing home, senior care facility, or even at home.

Easy to Use & Durable

We have two Broda chairs- one for a resident with Huntington’s Disease, and one for a resident with Parkinson’s Disease. The Huntington’s resident is severely spastic with uncontrolled movements. We have tried multiple chairs with lap restraints and lap belts with no avail. The resident had severe, injurious falls and has had no falls since the Broda placement. The chair for the Parkinson’s resident is used for comfort and he has had no discomfort since using the Broda chair. The staff really likes the Broda chairs. They are easy to use, adjust, roll, etc. They are excellent, durable chairs and we are very satisfied.

Pain Reversed & Comfort Achieved

We had an elderly resident with dementia who experienced a painful fall. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, her family was unable to visit. She refused to eat or drink and was not compliant with her care. I could tell that her health was declining FAST and we needed to find a way to keep her comfortable enough to eat. We put her in a Broda Midline at first and she improved. Next, we rented a Broda pedal wheelchair with a pelvic positioning belt and she was comfortable enough to move around, eat, and regain energy. Broda wheelchairs are ideal for residents in her situation for comfort and pain relief.

Our Patients Love the Bariatric Options

We’ve experienced a recent demand for bariatric care products. The Broda Revive Bariatric Shower Chair is exactly what we needed for our patients. It is a safe and comfortable seating system that is able to accommodate a weight of up to 800 lbs. The transition from bed to chair allows for ease in transfers due to the tilt in space/recline feature. The shower chair also doubles as a commode, so pts. don’t have to make two separate transfers. The strapping material and frame of the model makes for ease in cleaning also. Our patients love the chair!

Solving the Unsolvable

Our facility had a gentleman with severe contractures in his legs and he had not been out of bed for a very long time. We tried various other seating options with no success. Finally, as a last resort, our Rehab Manager suggested we call Broda. After discussing his needs, we arranged a trial of an Elite Positioning Wheelchair for this resident. For the first time in a very long time, the resident was able to be out of bed, comfortable, and social again. We want to thank Broda for solving an issue that we thought was unsolvable.

No Problems with Skin Integrity After Broda

We have not had any skin breakdown with our residents in the Broda Tilt Recliner chairs since we started using them four years ago. We attribute this to the design of the straps allowing for moisture wicking as well as the ability to easily position the chair in a tilt and/or recline position for pressure relief.
