We have found the Pedal Chair beneficial in reducing the need to use added restraints and even more it has improved out of bed positioning for our residents. The chair enables a resident’s position to be changed by tilting instead of reclining. This is beneficial in that changing position with tilting instead of reclining reduces the sheering forces in the areas of the sacrum, coccyx, and ischial tuberosities thus reducing the potential for skin integrity problems. The Pedal Chair also enables residents, with the ability, to be independently mobile while in a tilted position which decreases the fatigue of the trunk musculature by not having to support their upper body in a fully upright position all day.

We are currently using a Broda 785 for a Huntingtons resident. We were very concerned about the safety and the comfort of the resident until we tried him in the Broda chair. Now, he is happier and more comfortable than we have ever seen him.
We are very pleased at how much the Broda chairs help. We also recently purchased a Broda Pedal Chair and a Glider. Both of these have also helped improve the quality of life for our residents.
