By sitting down in a VELA chair, you can perform your usual standing activities safely and comfortably without draining your energy.

Thanks to soft and large wheels, it is easy to walk the chair around safely and smoothly, even on tiles and uneven floors. In addition, the chair comes in various seat heights to make sure it fits your size perfectly.

An easily accessible handbrake provides safety when performing daily activities, so you don’t have to worry about the chair moving away from under you.

The VELA Tango 700E has an electric lift that moves up and down with a touch of a button. Because of that, you can reach things on the top shelf or low in the cupboard.

Chair Height Range

Low

This height range is recommended for users who need to reach from e.g. base cabinets and up to tables/kitchen tables and still be able to easily 'walk' the chair around while sitting down.

Standard

Suitable for users who need extra height, so they can reach from e.g. kitchen table and up to low wall cabinets. The sitting height can be difficult to 'walk' around if the user is low or has reduced strength in the legs. For a safe sitting position, a footrest should also be selected.

High

Perfect for users who need to be able to reach up to high, they can reach e.g. kitchen table and up to the top shelves in the refrigerator or wall cabinets. Only tall users can 'walk' this chair around. For a safe sitting position, a footrest should also be selected.

Height Adjustment Controls

Upholstery Options

VELA offer a vast array of textiles that fit daily use and can withstand the regular wear-and-tear that happens over time.

Main Line Plus

Main Line Plus is a popular textile of high quality from Camira made from 67% Wool, 20% Flame-Retardant Viscose and 13% Viscose. Wear resistance >50,000 Martindale. It is known for having a great resistance to wear, good comfort and high cleanability.

Cleaned by vacuuming, professional cleaning or wiping with a clean, wrung out cloth.

Comfort

Comfort is a high-quality, environmentally-friendly textile from Gabriel with 37% recycled fibres: 88% Polyester and 12% Polyurethane. Its wear resistance is 150,000 Martindale. Certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®.

It is excellent for intensive use and is dirt-resistant – water and oil repellent. 

It is easy to clean using a clean, wrung out cloth with a pH-neutral soap, if necessary. It can be disinfected with ethanol.

Compound

Compound is a durable, artificial leather from Kvadrat in 100% polyurethane. Its wear resistance is 100,000 Martindale. Compound has excellent breathability, ensuring that the seat does not feel warm when sitting on it for a longer time. Beyond this, it has good friction so that you don’t feel like you’re sliding on the textile. In addition, it is water and oil repellent as well as highly cleanable.

You clean it with warm water and a neutral cleaning agent (use a soft cloth). Disinfection is possible using 70-85% surgical alcohol and chlorine disinfectant (active chlorine at 1000-1200 ppm). After cleaning/disinfection, you must rinse it repeatedly, using cool, clean water, and lastly, it must be dried with a clean, wrung out cloth.

Note: Do not use solvent-based cleaning agents (such as turpentine).

Backrest Styles

A backrest shall provide support and stability at the lumbar and upper part of the pelvis so that the user receives support in the sitting position.

NameActiveContourALB (Active Lumber Backrest)Support
DescriptionOffers great comfort and light support. It comes in various sizes to fit your body and support needs.Offers excellent comfort and a high degree of support. The backrest has contours with side support that help to stabilise your sitting position. Comes in various sizes to fit your body and support needs.Is a unique backrest with a split up back and lumbar support.This backrest provides optimal support to the lumbar and pelvic regions, supporting the natural lumbar curve and promoting an upright posture, which can help prevent or ease back pain.

The lumbar support is moved easily and smoothly forwards and backwards using a handle, which provides variation and support in the lumbar region.

The upper part of the back meanwhile retains its angle in relation to the pelvis, so that the user is also guaranteed support for the upper part of the back.
Is well padded and has built-in side supports. The built-in side supports, support from the hip and up to under the armpit, provide support in the sitting position and guide the user to their midline.

The Support backrest can be adjusted in height, depth, and angle to obtain as much support as possible in the sitting position. We recommend this backrest if the user uses a lot of energy to stay upright or possibly gets tired during the day. If the user falls out to the side a lot, this type of support is not enough. You can also select body supports and harnesses for this backrest.

Belt Options

A belt can be used for several purposes but is typically used if the person tends to slide forward in the seat or otherwise has difficulty sitting by themself.

A belt can help position the pelvis to make it easier for the person to maintain their sitting position and support the lumbar and pelvis. A belt can also ensure that the person does not get up from the chair and thereby fall.

H - Chest Strap Belt

The H-belt only fits Contour large and X-large backrests.

The H-belt helps to maintain a good, sitting position despite spasticity or fatigue.

The H-belt ensures that the user does not slip forward in the seat.

Not compatible for use with Active Backrest S, M and All ALB Backrests.

Y - Hip Strap Belt

Brake Selections

A reliable brake is an essential feature on the VELA chair, the brake creates the necessary stability and safety that makes activity, learning and independence possible.

The central brake provides a stable and safe seat for the day’s many different chores. The central brake also makes it safe to get up and sit down in the chair.

The brake must be easily accessible to the person who is going to use it. Therefore it is important to know who will use the chair’s brake.

It may be that the chair user is the only one that needs to use the brake, that only a helper must use the brake, or that everybody must have the possibility to brake the chair’s wheels.

If the floor is uneven or the person has involuntary movements, the chair may need brakes on all four wheels to have a completely safe chair.

This chair is, as standard, equipped with a combined foot brake/brake lever on the right side.

NameBrakerodAdjustable BrakerodAdjustable Brakerod with T-Brake LeverElectric Brake
DescriptionThis is the chairs standard brake. We recommend it if the person has no additional needs, and the chair is at standard height.The extension handle extends the brake lever, making it easier to reach, compared to a standard brake. We recommend an extension handle if the person is mainly up high. An extension handle also makes it easier to brake the chair, as it requires less force than a standard brake handle.The T-handle extends the brake level, and at the same time, makes it wider and easier to reach. We recommend this handle for people who have reduced mobility in the shoulders, arms or upper back. The T-handle makes it easier to brake the chair, as it requires less force than a standard brake handle. We recommend an electric brake for people who cannot operate a standard brake lever but want to use the brake independently.
The electric brake can ensure that the person is as self-sufficient as possible despite a physical disability - and is an advantage for both caregivers and the person.

Footrest Options

A footrest is often essential for the user to have an optimal sitting position. The feet must be supported when the user is sitting in the chair, so if the user cannot reach the floor while sitting, a footrest must be used.

The right footrest provides stability and security in the sitting position and reduces strain on the legs and body muscles while the user can maintain a good sitting position.

NameFold-up FootrestSingle FootrestS-FootrestAmputation SupportLegrest type ELegrest type E elevating
DescriptionIs located at the bottom of the frame and does not follow the seat height. It provides good support in all sitting positions where the user cannot reach the floor with its feet. The fold-up footrest does not support the whole foot but can be used as a step board when the person gets up and sits down.Provides support in the sitting position. The footrest is located above the right and/or left front wheel. The footrest can be rotated with the foot and provide support for a varied sitting position. The footrest can be rotated away when the user has to walk the chair forward.Has a folding footplate and is mounted on the underside of the seat. In this way, the footrest accompanies the seat when adjusted in height, and the user gets good support for the feet regardless of seat height.Can be a great advantage if the user has a leg amputation. The amputation support has a padded cushion that can be angled and adjusted in height and length (distance to the seat), so it can be used as a knee pad or to support the residual limb below the knee.Has a fixed 67° angle. Mounted on one side under the front of the seat and can be swung away when the user gets up and sits down. The E legrest can be removed if needed and can be adjusted in length and footplate angle.

Can provide relief and support if the person has impaired function in one side of the body, e.g. in the case of hemiplegia.
Has an adjustable 0-67° angle. Mounted on one side under the front of the seat and can be swung away when the user gets up and sits down. The angle is set via a release button at the top of the legrest.

The legrest can be removed if needed and can be adjusted in length and footplate angle. Note: can only be mounted on one side.

Anti-Tip Bar                                                                             

We recommend an anti-tip bar on all chairs for users who have involuntary movements or uses the chair with a pedal exerciser. A 4-wheel brake is a benefit in those cases.
