”My mother did all kitchen work from such a VELA chair for several years”
Supporting an independent lifestyle in your own home
At first glance, it looks like an office chair with a brake. That’s true! However, the VELA chair is much more than that: electric height adjustment, stable armrests, and 4 instead of 5 wheels make a big difference.More than an office chair

VELA Tango is a series of specialised activity chairs developed to enable you to keep your usual level of activity and independence at home and the workplace – despite your disability.
A unique central brake ensures that you have a stable workplace, which means that working in the kitchen with knives or boiling water is safe. Four smoothly running and direction-stable wheels make the activity chair easy to ‘walk’.
VELA 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 Chair is available with either a manual seat height adjustment, like on a regular office chair, or with electric 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 mobility 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.
VELA has developed a unique fold-up footrest for the VELA Chairs. It stabilises your sitting posture when you use it, e.g. to reach the top cupboard.
You can order all VELA 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.
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.
