Workplace with special needs

Office work and other sedentary work can be ideal for people with disabilities that affect balance and walking. With sedentary work, e.g. in an office, it is often possible to achieve a good sitting position by adjusting the chair and desk to the work situation.

VELA has several different models of customised chairs and sit-stand chairs with brakes, which are particularly well suited to office work and can be adapted to suit people with special needs.

An ordinary office chair may be unsuitable for people with walking difficulties and reduced balance, since the chair can easily roll away when the user tries to get up or sit down. A VELA work or sit-stand chair, however, has a brake, and you can get up or sit down without the chair rolling away. This increases the user’s stability and provides security. Using the chair’s brake while sitting and working achieves stability, and less strength is therefore required to maintain a good sitting position.

Finding the right chair

VELA has many years of experience of finding just the right chair so that people with disabilities can continue to actively participate in the labour market. 

nWhen selecting a chair for sedentary work for people with disabilities, it is important to focus on: a stable underframe and a central brake for security and balance, as well as other special needs that must be met to create a good workplace.

Workplace with special wide

 

 

If the user has reduced strength in their legs or, for example, stiff joints, it can be beneficial to choose a chair with electric height-adjustment. It is also possible to get around the office while sitting down, since all our chairs with central brakes have large wheels, which make it possible to “walk” the chair forward. All chairs in this series also have adjustable seats, backs and armrests so the user can achieve a good, active, ergonomic sitting position regardless of the work situation, and switch between different tasks.

We recommend the following chairs for special needs jobs:
