Children's Chairs

VELA children’s chairs assist individuals with disability, to help them achieve an optimum level of independence at home and at school. These chairs are developed so that children and young adults with disabilities can maintain independence and stay active.

With a VELA Children’s chair, it is possible to ’grow’ with the chair and get special adaptions - for a perfect fit for children and adolescents.

VELA Children’s chairs will truly grow with the user. The unique back adjustment allows the seat depth to increase as the child grows. Should the user grow out of the existing seat then simply replace the seat pad for the next size up - same applies with our backrests. Our modular system allows for accessories/supports to be added retrospectively should the need occur.

The easy reach Central Brake promotes user independence and safety. The contoured seating system with memory foam helps prevent sacral sitting & the 4-point belt helps with hip alignment. A selection of supportive backrests and adjustable armrests help the child stay focused and supported whilst in class or at home.

The ergonomic seat and backrest systems from VELA are specifically designed for children and provides an optimal sitting comfort, as both the backrest and seat can be adjusted to suit the individual child.

Advice on ergonomics

Good ergonomics is important for children with disabilities, since many activities take place while sitting. It is also important for carers and therapists in relation to work environment, e.g. for support, school or training.

1. Good ergonomics is not one specific sitting posture, but variation in switching between sitting positions for different tasks during the day.

2. Use the chair’s seat and backrest adjustment options to vary the child’s sitting posture – move and change position in relation to the activity.

3. Move the chair close to the task and avoid postures where the child have to stoop and strain back or neck.

4. Use the height adjustment and seat tilt to ensure a good sitting height. The height adjustment also facilitates the helper’s work during transfers.

An adult should always help the child to adjust the chair so that the chair is set appropriate for the child in relation to the activity.
