Standing work

Quality of life for people with disabilities may be linked to being able to do a job, e.g. with reduced hours or a flex job. Quality of life can also mean being able to perform everyday activities independently.

VELA chair for standing work at the job

Standing work, either in the workplace or at home, can be very challenging for people with disabilities due to pain, reduced strength in the legs or poor balance.

For this reason, it is important to find alleviating work postures so that you will be able to carry out your tasks as well as possible.

Therefore, it is important to look at the type of tasks to be performed, the nature of the work environment and the specific disability. For example, does the workplace require switching between standing and sitting work postures or is it a workplace with standing work only?

Finding the right chair

VELA has many years of experience of finding just the right chair so that people with disabilities can continue to work – even when the work primarily involves standing. VELA has a wide range of work chairs which can be adapted to the individual user’s needs. When using a chair for standing work – at the workplace or in the home – it is important to consider whether the chair needs a brake. An office chair with brake and electric lift is an advantage for users with poor balance, for example.

VELA work chairs can be height-adjusted using a gas spring or electrically. This means the chair can be adapted to a number of different users. In addition, height adjustment can be used to ensure good ergonomics at varying work heights. 

You should also take account of whether the user requires armrests, which can provide relief for the arms and make it easier to get into and out of the chair.

The seat, back and armrests can be adjusted so that the user can achieve a good, active, ergonomic work posture, and be able to carry out their tasks.
