After a resident is transferred into a chair assess the amount of tilt required We recommend that the chair s seat be. tilted sufficiently to prevent the resident from sliding or falling forward off the chair The amount of seat tilt used. should be determined by the resident s caregiver who is responsible for seating. We recommend that the resident s feet be correctly positioned on the footrests and slightly to fully elevated to. prevent the resident from sliding or falling forward off the chair The amount of elevation used should be determined. by the resident s caregiver who is responsible for seating. 2 5 2 Position of Seat Tilt Danger of Tipping, We recommend that the chair s seat be tilted sufficiently to prevent an agitated resident from tipping the chair.
forward or backward or from slumping and sliding in the chair The amount of seat tilt used should be determined. by the resident s caregiver who is responsible for seating Always ensure that the resident is properly positioned. before operating the seat tilt, 2 5 3 Location of Chair Danger of Tipping or Falling Objects. We recommend that when a resident has been moved to their destination the chair is placed where the resident. cannot reach handrails or other objects fixed or movable This is to prevent the resident from pulling the chair over. or pulling themselves off the seating surface and to prevent the resident from pulling movable objects onto the chair. and themselves, We recommend that the chair be used in a supervised area to prevent untrained residents caregivers or third parties. from unauthorized operation movement or unsafe actions such as sitting or leaning on the reclined back elevated. footrest or the armrests These actions if not prevented put the chair at risk of tipping or damage to the chair. We recommend that a chair only be located on a level surface to minimize the risk of tipping over. 2 5 4 Total Lock Wheel Brakes Danger of Falling, The special casters found on the BRODA chair have total lock brakes which prevent the wheels from turning and. swiveling The brakes must always be applied when,1 the chair is not in use. 2 a resident is being transferred moved into or out of the chair and. 3 the chair is not being moved by a caregiver, It is important to note that if the wheel locks are applied while the patient is in the chair that the caregiver does not.
leave the patient unattended especially those patients who have the capability or tendency to move the chair and or. those who may be agitated This could cause harm to the patient if they attempt to move the chair while the wheel. locks are applied, Note that removing and attaching the footrest may be easier for the caregiver with the brakes applied. Failure to follow these instructions will unnecessarily increase the risk of serious falls by residents caregivers or. third parties caused by the chair unintentionally moving. 2 5 5 Re Positioning of Resident Danger of Clamping. BRODA chairs offer the benefits of seat tilt back recline leg rest footrest elevation and moveable arms During the. movement of any of these functions the following safety measures must be observed. 1 The resident s arms must be positioned on the armrests or inside the chair frame with their hands. on their body or on, 2 The resident s feet must be correctly positioned on the footrest. 3 All of the chair s brakes have been applied, 4 Only one caregiver at a time attempts to operate the chair s functions. 5 Only one chair function is operated at a time, 6 The rear wheels are in the trailing position behind the chair frame. 7 The residents and caregivers body are clear of all pinch points before operating the chair s. Failure to follow these safety measures can put the residents or caregivers limbs at risk of injury Residents who. may be unaware of their body position or unable to maintain a safe body position are at the most risk of the danger. from clamping and caregivers should be more cautious with these residents A second caregiver may be required to. ensure the safety of these residents during these operations. 2 5 6 Unintended Movement Danger of Falling or Collision.
