An ordinary office chair and MS can be an unfortunate match
Until Allison got a disability work chair, she found it hard to move from her office chair to the scooter she uses to get around daily. But now, she is far more mobile and self-reliant, and that makes a world of difference in her job.
Allison has progressive secondary sclerosis. This means that she depends on her scooter to get around – both at her workplace as a nurse and in her home.
The scooter is a fine aid for Allison, but it is different when she needs to sit in a regular office chair to work. An office chair can roll away under her and be difficult to control.
It can require a lot of unnecessary strength that Allison should be using on what she’s good at.
That’s why an office chair with brake and electric lift from VELA is an excellent help in Allison’s life.
At the job with multiple sclerosis
Many different issues arise from having multiple sclerosis, but fortunately, there’s a lot of help available.
Allison has been in a situation where she needed daily help to manage the move from the scooter to the office chair. This took up a great deal of energy and time, away from the job that Allison is passionate about.
A VELA chair became the big turning point.
