New VELA Tango 500 chair with ALB-backrest

VELA introduces a completely new model in the series of VELA Tango chairs, featuring the latest development within customised chairs

VELA Tango 500 has the revolutionary, two-part, ALB backrest, which is an ergonomically shaped backrest consisting of a lumbar support section and back support section, each of which can be adjusted separately.


This backrest provides optimal support to the lumbar and pelvic regions, supporting the natural lumbar curve and promoting an upright posture in a new, pioneering way which is unique compared to other backrests currently on the market.

Now, with the VELA Tango 500 people with disabilities can achieve an even better sitting position, contributing to better mobility, activity and participation in everyday activities or in the workplace.

The ALB backrest also provides varying support around the stomach, lumbar and pelvis, resulting in less fatigue in the back and preventing slouching while sitting.

VELA developed the customised chair in 1970 in close cooperation with occupational therapists and physiotherapists, and since then the VELA chair has helped hundreds of thousands of people to manage daily tasks and, not least, to live independently. 


Tango 500 med ALBThe VELA Tango 500 with ALB backrest also has: 

  • The familiar stable underframe

  • Large wheels so it is easy to move the chair around
