A different recliner chair for the elderly

Elderly is a word that usually refers to a time when you are no longer part of the labour market. Now you can relax and enjoy life. 

A recliner chair for the elderly is also a word for an armchair that invites you to relax, as the backrest can be reclined, and you can put your legs up on a footstool.

A VELA chair for the elderly: Variety and activity are important

The recliner chair is a stationary chair you can place in your TV room. It invites rest and breaks but does not invite any activity at home. For that, you need a VELA chair instead.

If you have one or more disabilities, it is essential to vary your sitting position throughout the day for optimal comfort and support. That is why we recommend that you use a VELA chair for your daily activities and a recliner chair for when you need to completely relax and recharge for the next activity. 

That way, you are giving yourself the very best conditions for managing a whole day without overexertion while at the same time ensuring an appropriate amount of activity that is good for your body and your health.

A recliner chair with wheels makes daily chores easy

As mentioned, a VELA chair is for everyday tasks. It is a recliner chair with smooth-running wheels that make it possible to get around the home while seated, and it is a chair with an electric lift.

With a central brake, the chair can be a safe base while you cook, complete minor tasks or see to your personal care routine in the bathroom. 

A VELA mobility chair is made for the individual and helps you to help yourself because, among other things, it is a chair that goes with you wherever you choose to “walk” it.

The stationary recliner chair

As mentioned, the standard recliner chair is a stationary armchair that you cannot use for domestic chores. It can be adjusted to support both your neck and head, e.g. when you lie back in it. 

You have limited adjustment options in a recliner chair, but that is simply because it is designed for total relaxation, not activity.

Do you need a longer rest?

A VELA chair can also be adjusted to a more reclined sitting position, allowing you to have a little rest.

If you need a longer rest between your activities, you can benefit from a standard recliner chair, as it invites more relaxation.

Comfort and assistance in standing up from both chairs

The recliner chair is soft and comfortable, making it an excellent chair for long breaks. The VELA chair is also very comfortable, but it is perfect for activities. 

Electric recliner chairs are available with an electric seat lift to help you stand up gently, and the same goes for VELA chairs. Just press the button, and the chair will help you up into a standing position. 

That way, you will not have to strain to get up if you need to rest in your recliner chair.

One chair does not exclude the other

A recliner chair and a VELA chair are not comparable because they cover different needs and offer two solutions.

It is always a good idea to change your seating position. Therefore, we recommend the two chairs as a complement to each other. The VELA chair for tasks and activity. The recliner chair for long, much-needed breaks. 

One chair does not exclude the other.
