VELA chairs are mobility aids for the elderly and disabled
One benefit of using a VELA chair as a mobility aid for the elderly or disabled is that it can protect you from falling. You can sit down and walk/push yourself around wherever you want. You can lower the seat height of your chair, so that you can reach the floor with your feet.
This means you can walk the mobility chair around your home. Walk from your kitchen and into your living room, bedroom or bathroom while sitting down. If you want to move from your chair to the sofa, lock the brake on the chair, tilt the armrest to the side and just slide off the chair.
The Vela chair is basically a disability chairs with wheels. It looks like any other chair but can assist you to do daily tasks without much effort.
It’s easy to move around at home, as the chair has smooth-running wheels, so you can ‘walk’/push yourself forward while sitting down in the chair.
Specialist chairs for the elderly: Reach high and low with an electric lift
If you’re looking for specialist chairs for the elderly, this is where you’ll find them.
A specialist chair with an electric lift is for those who are quickly drained of energy. The chair moves up and down at the touch of a button, so you can reach things on the top shelf or at the bottom of the cupboard. It also makes it easier to get the right working height by the oven, and you can sit safely and securely and use both hands.
An aid that helps you get up easily
The specialist chair helps you with extra support when you need to get up. Simply press the button, and the chair rises so that you can get up safely and securely without straining.
Use a VELA chair as disability equipment for standing up. Simply press the button on the electric disability chair, and the seat rises gently. When the chair brake is engaged, you will feel completely safe and secure while the seat moves up. Let yourself slide forward and end up standing upright in front of the chair. This means the chair helps you to stand up fully – without any effort.
Sit down instead of standing
Fill and empty the dishwasher while sitting down – it’s easy to adjust the seat to a low height and just as easy to readjust it to a normal height.
Save your energy by sitting down rather than standing up.
The Vela chair brings independence to people’s lives because it helps the individual glide from room to room, task to task, without the physical effort of getting up. The ability to be able to push the chair with the legs instead of the arms gives the user the freedom to perform tasks that before couldn’t due to the arms having to do the work to get from one point to the other.
