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.
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.
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.

“My background in special needs teaching and then 7 years at St John is proving invaluable in my role at Morton and Perry. I love meeting lots of different people and changing their lives for the better – with often just one piece of equipment.
I’m Looking forward to the new technology that’s coming in the near future to make a difference even more.”
“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.”
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.
In my role as Sales and Customer Service Administrator I’m your first port of call in the main office. I have worked at Morton & Perry for 3 years and enjoy the diversity of the role. We have a great team who I really enjoy working with and I am looking forward to on-going changes in the company and industry.
In the past I have worked in many different industries – nursing, retail, admin – all customer service related. I have obtained many transferable skills that have assisted me in my current role. I have also obtained medical knowledge from my nursing days and natural health knowledge from my role as manager of a health shop and personal interest.
“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.”
