Mobility aids: VELA chairs for elderly and disabled

We are getting older than ever before, and that’s nothing short of amazing. For many of us, however, there comes the point in life when our bodies can’t do the same things as when we were younger. And that’s when mobility aids come in handy.

Regain your mobility with a VELA Chair

A VELA chair for the elderly and disabled helps with:

Better balance makes you want to do more

When you feel tired, it’s worth sitting down on a safe chair with a brake. This means you can continue your activity without losing your balance.

Safety and security

You get a chair that you can walk/push around while sitting down. This means increased mobility where you can move around safely at home without fear of falling – and you have two free hands for your task.

Increased independence

A safe, stable and mobile chair make it easier to get started with, for example, light cleaning and cooking. Getting dressed and visiting the toilet is also more accessible, as the chair supports you, so you can save your strength and make your energy last longer.

Help for standing up

The chair helps you get up into a standing position. It has an electric lift so that you can get up with minimal effort.


VELA chairs are mobility aids for the elderly and disabled

One benefit of using a VELA chair as a mobility aid for the elderly or disabled is that it can protect you from falling. You can sit down and walk/push yourself around wherever you want. You can lower the seat height of your chair, so that you can reach the floor with your feet. 

This means you can walk the mobility chair around your home. Walk from your kitchen and into your living room, bedroom or bathroom while sitting down. If you want to move from your chair to the sofa, lock the brake on the chair, tilt the armrest to the side and just slide off the chair.

Specialist chairs for the elderly: Reach high and low with an electric lift

If you’re looking for specialist chairs for the elderly, this is where you’ll find them. 

A specialist chair with an electric lift is for those who are quickly drained of energy. The chair moves up and down at the touch of a button, so you can reach things on the top shelf or at the bottom of the cupboard. 

It also makes it easier to get the right working height by the oven, and you can sit safely and securely and use both hands.

An aid that helps you get up easily

The specialist chair helps you with extra support when you need to get up. Simply press the button, and the chair rises so that you can get up safely and securely without straining.

Reach high and low surfaces with the raising/lowering function

The chair has an electric raising/lowering function, which allows you to reach the bottom drawers and top shelves in the cupboards at the touch of a button. You never compromise on safety, as the chair has a safe central brake that is easy to use.

When your legs fail you

Walking difficulties become a more significant issue the older we get. Our legs have carried us through a long life, and now they’re getting tired. Therefore, the right mobility aid for the elderly and disabled can provide excellent relief and help in everyday life. 

Our chairs have an excellent brake that keeps you safe when adjusting the height of the chair. Lock the chair and raise the seat to the desired height. The chair is also great support while you get dressed, brush your teeth or while cooking. 

A chair from VELA gives your legs a well-deserved break while you attend to other chores with your hands.

Independence with aid for the elderly and disabled

Even though our bodies age, it doesn’t mean our minds have to. It can therefore be hard to accept that your body no longer obeys your every command. This is especially hard if you get to a point in life when you need daily help. 

An aid for the elderly may mean that you don’t need outside help to the same extent. You get your independence back.
