All Broda chairs (excluding Acute Care Chair, 587 and Auto Locking Glider, due to padding on back) can be used for Kyphosis.
Kyphosis can be accommodated by reversing specific straps along the back of the chair, as this allows for approx an extra 1.5” space for the curvature to help bring the resident back in the chair.
If the kyphosis is more severe, specific straps can be removed on the back to accommodate the curvature. The area where the straps have been removed can be covered with a pad around the back of the chair to maintain the resident’s dignity.
By accommodating kyphosis, this enables the resident to sit back comfortably in the chair, which helps improve overall positioning, head support and comfort.
