Adjust the height according to your needs
A manual wheelchair is typically a more “passive” aid than a VELA chair, as a VELA chair supports your activities in everyday life. For example, you can adjust the seat height of a VELA chair using the electric lift.
This means that with the touch of a button, you can get down to empty the dishwasher or get up high to put things away in cupboards – all while sitting safely and securely in your chair. Manual wheelchairs typically have a fixed seat height that cannot be raised or lowered.
VELA chairs also let you find the optimal seat height. While it can be helpful to adjust this to the length of your legs, it can also be advantageous to change the seat height to suit the table you are sitting at or the task you are performing.
In addition, the electric lift can be a great help when standing up, or if you need to move between a chair and a bed.
