Many electric wheelchair users have to sit in their chair for most of the day. An electric wheelchair from VELA gives you the possibility to combine good ergonomics with amazing driveability. All our electric wheelchairs are designed with a focus on a good ergonomic sitting posture and a good work environment for the carer.
The best solution for each user's situation is very personal, which is why VELA has a very extensive accessories catalogue and carries out a large number of customisations.
Finding the right chair
Since the beginning of the 1980s, VELA has been producing electric wheelchairs and giving advice on finding just the right chair. Our consultants have many years of experience of giving advice on which chair is most suitable for a specific user and the environments in which they will use the chair.
When choosing an electric wheelchair it is essential to consider whether the electric wheelchair will be used inside or outside, and how the user can best manoeuvre the chair.
In relation to achieving the best possible sitting position in an electric wheelchair, there are many types of accessories and customisations that can support and relieve people with disabilities.
VELA has a wide range of accessories such as seats, backs and leg rests which makes it possible to ensure the user has a comfortable sitting position – both during activity and rest. Electric wheelchairs from VELA can be adapted to users with special needs. This can be done, for example, with advanced control and environmental control.
