A mobility device that doesn’t look like an aid

A VELA chair offers great mobility aid in the form of an office chair. You can choose between a variety of backrests and seats to make the chair fit your body and needs the best. With the right configuration, an aid for mobility can for example relieve and prevent back pain.

If e.g. your back problems demand that you sit with a specific type of support for your lower or upper back, we have different kinds of backrests, all of which can be adjusted during the day to give you the proper support for an ergonomic sitting posture.

Experience independent mobility with an independence aid that highly resembles an ordinary office chair – except the brake. The brake will become your best friend when using your mobility chair with wheels: when standing up, sitting down, or when working at a tabletop. Use the brake to provide yourself with a stable base that supports you in case you lose balance.
