Using the VELA Tango chair
VELA Tango chairs are particularly well suited for people with disabilities because the chair provides extra safety and stability during everyday activities at home, at the workplace or in rehabilitation and training.
The VELA Tango chair is available with either a manual seat height adjustment, like on a regular office chair, or with electrical height adjustment, enabling you, despite reduced strength or movability, to get up and sit down and avoid painful bumps.
The central brake and the stable armrests make it easier to get into and out of the chair. You can put your weight on the armrest as the chair will not move. The brake and armrests are indeed a benefit to people who have problems regarding mobility or balance.
The chair has smoothly running wheels and plenty of room for the feet. Because of that, you can easily ‘walk’ the chair while sitting down and move around without assistance pat education, at work or home.
Adjustment of the seat height, depth and tilt plus backrests and armrests ensures the optimum conditions for an ergonomic sitting position.
Accessories and special solutions
VELA has developed a unique fold-up footrest for the VELA Tango chairs. It stabilises your sitting posture when you use it, e.g. to reach the top cupboard.
You can order all VELA Tango chairs with a large selection of accessories and customisations for the chair to fit your needs. For instance, we have handles developed for people with arthritis in hands and fingers. We offer individual solutions within padding, support, handles and electrical adjustment.
VELA chairs improve the work environment
Height adjustment of the seat improves the work position for assistants, e.g., when you need assistance at meals or when getting dressed. The height adjustment means that you can sit high up or easily adjust the seat height to the same level as a bed or a chair for an easy and safer transfer. The height-adjustable push handle eases the work if you need assistance to move from A to B.
