Improve your breathing with the right support
Being heavy-duty can prevent the diaphragm from working optimally. This means that breathing becomes difficult, which is disabling for everyone.
That’s why our VELA chairs come with support for both the back and arms. The support helps ensure that your diaphragm is given the space and help it needs to keep you breathing properly. Breathing also worsens if you suffer from pain in your muscles and joints – so a good, upright and relaxed posture is essential.
The chair is strong enough for you too
Many heavy-duty people feel insecure sitting in an unfamiliar chair – will it hold? Our bariatric chairs are very robust and reinforced in every way, so you don’t have to worry about whether your VELA chair will hold. It will.
Get around while sitting down
You can ‘walk’ or push yourself around thanks to the chair’s wheels. This means you can get around your home or office and be on the move more. It enables you to perform light cleaning or prepare a meal yourself.
Safety and support when standing up and sitting down
Bariatric chairs from VELA are reinforced to hold your weight. This means that you can engage the brake on the chair and safely push off on the armrests when you need to get up, without having to worry about whether the chair will stay in place or not.
You sit up instead of lying down
Many heavy-duty people lie down for much of the day, as it can be challenging for the body to walk and stand for a whole day – and that helps neither weight nor energy levels. The VELA heavy-duty chair supports and relieves you while sitting down – and your lungs work much better when you sit compared to when you lie down.
