Living with chronic illness
Fortunately, some aids can make getting through the day much more manageable. A VELA chair will help you on the good days, especially in situations where your body fails.
A VELA tango chair cannot remove the disability, but it can relieve the body from CRPS or fibromyalgia. It can minimise pain, breathing difficulties, palpitations, decreased concentration and headaches that often occur or are exacerbated by the constant pressure to which your body is exposed.
A hallmark of chronic illness is that there are good and bad days, and the disability can suddenly overwhelm you and drain all of your energy.
VELA chairs’ design supports you in your everyday life and compensates for your lack of energy when you feel completely drained. Therefore, our chairs can be adjusted to your needs and have the following functions that can help you in everyday life.
Save your energy
As daily life can be associated with a lot of pain, CRPS often means getting tired quickly. Therefore, it can be difficult for you to do basic things, as they may require a level of strength and energy that you simply do not have.
Our office chairs for disabled adults can offer relief and save you a lot of energy. At the same time, it provides a good level of comfort because both the seat and backrest support you in a good and active sitting position. In addition, the chair has a raising/lowering function, so you do not have to use your energy to get up into a standing position.
Instead, you can save your strength for things that improve your quality of life.
Become more mobile with a VELA chair
VELA chairs have four smooth-running wheels that allow you to walk the chair around at home or work – while you are seated.
In that way, you can save your energy on the bad days, and it means you may be able to do without or minimise your need for outside help.
Use the chair in the kitchen while you cook, or move around your home effortlessly. The chair does not require much space for you to get around while sitting down, and you can also move from room to room while seated.
A raising/lowering function is therefore helpful for people with a disability due to fibromyalgia
An electric lift function can help people with CRPS and a disability due to fibromyalgia. Electric height adjustment avoids unnecessary bumps when you change your seat height – and this reduces the risk of feeling pain and discomfort.
In addition, the electric raising/lowering function can help you in many different situations. For example, raise your seat height so you can reach a cup in the top cupboard, or lower your seat height to put plates in the dishwasher.
An electric lift for raising/lowering can have a considerable impact on your sense of independence, which makes a big difference in your quality of life.
