Vela Tango Independence Chair - A Unique Chair

More functional than a wheelchair or walker
for indoor tasks

Choice of electric lift or manual gas-lift

VELA chairs have the option of a powered Hi-Lo lift that helps you rise safely to a standing position at the touch of a button for easy exit from the chair.

A brake for greater safety

If you have difficulty balancing, you have peace of mind and extra safety when the chair’s central brake is activated. The chair will remain completely stationary when you stand up or sit down.

Highly versatile

You can ‘walk’ or push the chair around with your legs with minimal effort, due to its superior free-rolling castors. There is also plenty of foot room to give you space to move the chair.

A chair that fits your needs

Our team will help you find the chair model that fits your individual needs depending on your disability and challenges. We offer different accessories, seat and backrest options to give you the best possible support.

Improved sitting posture

You benefit from a comfortable, ergonomic sitting position with seat and backrest that can be adjusted independently to give maximum support.

Weight-bearing armrests

The armrests provide a safe and sturdy platform to help you get in and out of the chair. They lower down to seat height for easy transfers.

Tango 500 Award Winning Design

The Vela Tango 500 has a 2-part ALB backrest that supports the natural lumbar curve and promotes an ergonomic upright posture, resulting in less fatigue in the back. The chair won the prize for “Danish-manufactured aid of the year” at the Health & Rehab trade fair in 2016.

Sales Support South Island

Ian Wyllie

Based in Christchurch, and regularly in each of the Southern regions Ian is our direct link to assisting South Islanders. Clients & therapists across the South Island are welcome to make contact and enquire about Morton & Perry’s healthcare equipment solutions – seeking the possible.

“With a number of years involvement in utilising healthcare equipment, my aim is to provide high standards of service and to collaborate with others. I’ve worked with Aged Care providers, DHB Teams and for many people in the wider community.  The excitement going forward is to continue learning more about people, using the ever-improving equipment that exists and assisting with people’s journeys.

Morton & Perry is a versatile, enthusiastic and progressive co, which I’ve really enjoyed being part of and bringing that special capability to South Islanders.

With a busy wife, fast growing teenagers and a desire to be “out on the water” or out seeing the world – there’s often time pressure, but no better time than now, to be out trying to do good.

“Mum was right… she told me to go for it when I said at age ten that I wanted to be a Physiotherapist.

Otago trained and really privileged to have worked in many counties and many areas of Physiotherapy, it’s been a such a good choice for me. I feel like I’ve had many mini careers under the Physio banner.  Community PT, Rotational, MSK, Admission avoidance, Manual handling coordinator, Wheelchair and Posture therapist… the list really does go on. While in the UK I completed the post graduate qualification of “Complex postural assessment”. I officially became a wheelchair and posture geek at that point.

Of late I’ve been applying my skills and experience as a clinical rep for Morton & Perry. I love it. It’s the getting stuck in and helping that really has me love my current role. I get a buzz out of having solutions for people and therapists. I do my best to get things spot on for the clients, therapists and funders we work with.”


David Morton

“It seems like only yesterday Morton & Perry began, now it’s 20 years plus. Yes, I have turned grey, but it has been a lot of fun and many challenges along the way, but I wouldn’t swap it for the world. What gives me the buzz every day is seeing how we can significantly improve, and change people’s lives with improved technology solutions. And how our team are also so passionate in assisting our clients day to day. Then of course they are far more skilled than me. Then with downtime it is coping with teenagers and chasing fish in the Hauraki Gulf.”

Head of Technical Department

Ian Flemming

‘I have been with Morton and Perry for nearly 8 years, I started off doing Warehouse duties and building chairs, I am now the Technical and Service Manager and my day to day function is the setup and custom modification of Powerchairs, I love finding solutions to help the client get better mobility.

In the time I have been with Morton and Perry I have visited the TA Service Factory in Denmark twice so there is not much I do not know about the TA Powerchair range, I love the face-to-face contact with clients and Therapists and finding mobility solutions.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my 2 young boys who keep me busy, every Christmas Holiday we look forward to camping at the same spot in the far North we call it “Our Happy Place” Sunshine and no cell phone coverage what else can you ask for!!’
