Children's chairs

VELA Children's chairs is a range of safe chairs for activities, developed for children and young people with special needs.  The chair is perfect for use in school and at home since the central brake provides stability for working, and when the child has to get into and out of the chair. These children’s chairs have optional electric height adjustment, e.g. for assistance with getting into and out of the chair or to vary the seat height while the child is sitting in the chair.
VELA focuses on ergonomics, which is reflected in our many options for standard seat systems – all our back and seat cushions can be customised.

The VELA Children's chair use

VELA Children's chairs provide support and security for children and adolescents with movement and balance problems. The brake ensures easy entry and exit. VELA Children's chairs provide stability and security through a robust frame and VELA's well-known central brake function.

The ergonomic seat and back system is specifically designed for children and provides an optimal sitting comfort, as both the back and seat can be adjusted in many different ways to suit the individual child. The seat cushions on VELA Children's chairs can be divided into "zones" that can be individually customized. The seat has a basin with a soft and a hard side that can be turned - as needed.

VELA Children's chairs gives the child a unique opportunity to grow in the chair as the seat and back can easily be changed. At the VELA Tango 100 ES / S, the upper part of the chair can be replaced when the child becomes so large that there is a need for an adult chair. This also means that the chair can be used for both children and adults in recycling terms.

The central brake ensures safety and is a good way of directing the child’s attention during a particular task, e.g. with additional support from a shaped seat and supporting armrests. This helps the child to stay focused, for instance if the child is restless and easily distracted. Adjustment of the seat height, depth and tilt plus backrests and armrests ensures the optimum conditions for an ergonomic sitting position when performing tasks during the day.

VELA Children's chairs comes with manually adjusted seat height, or with electric height adjustment function, meaning the child is able to adjust the height themselves, e.g. during activities or when getting into or out of the chair.

Accessories and special solutions

VELA Children's Chairs allows to "securing" the chair's setup and adjustment options. This means that the child's classmates or younger siblings not get set the chair by accident and thereby get to create an inappropriate posture for the child.

All VELA children’s chairs can be ordered with a large selection of accessories and special solutions, enabling the chair to be adapted to the needs of the child, e.g. thigh supports, body supports and stabilising harness and ankle straps. VELA can also offer individual solutions within padding, comfort, support, handles and electric adjustment.

VELA Children’s chairs promotes a good work environment

Electric height adjustment improves the working posture for the child’s helpers, for example at mealtimes, during activities or when getting the child dressed. With height adjustment, the child can be placed high and easily placed in level with a particular activity. Push handle makes work easier, for example if the child needs to be moved over short distances.
