VELA Better use of assistive devices at home

Children's VELA chairs

VELA Children's chairs is a range of safe chairs for activities, developed for children and young people with special needs. The chair is perfect for use in school and at home since the central brake provides stability for working, and when the child has to get into and out of the chair. These children’s chairs have optional electric height adjustment, e.g. for assistance with getting into and out of the chair or to vary the seat height while the child is sitting in the chair.
VELA focuses on ergonomics, which is reflected in our many options for standard seat systems – all our back and seat cushions can be customised.

VELA Children's chairs provide support and security for children and adolescents with movement and balance problems. The brake ensures easy entry and exit. VELA Children's chairs provide stability and security through a robust frame and VELA's well-known central brake function.

The ergonomic seat and back system is specifically designed for children and provides an optimal sitting comfort, as both the back and seat can be adjusted in many different ways to suit the individual child. The seat cushions on VELA Children's chairs can be divided into "zones" that can be individually customized. The seat has a basin with a soft and a hard side that can be turned - as needed.

VELA Children's chairs gives the child a unique opportunity to grow in the chair as the seat and back can easily be changed. At the VELA Tango 100 ES / S, the upper part of the chair can be replaced when the child becomes so large that there is a need for an adult chair. This also means that the chair can be used for both children and adults in recycling terms.

The central brake ensures safety and is a good way of directing the child’s attention during a particular task, e.g. with additional support from a shaped seat and supporting armrests. This helps the child to stay focused, for instance if the child is restless and easily distracted. Adjustment of the seat height, depth and tilt plus backrests and armrests ensures the optimum conditions for an ergonomic sitting position when performing tasks during the day.

VELA Children's chairs comes with manually adjusted seat height, or with electric height adjustment function, meaning the child is able to adjust the height themselves, e.g. during activities or when getting into or out of the chair.
