VELA independent seating for juniors

Back to - VELA | VELA Chairs


Does your child want to become more independent and feel included in activities with their classmates and relatives?

Many children with mobility issues can feel isolated from their peers. The VELA Tango 600ES has a discreet design which blends into the home or school environment whilst providing additional support and functionality that a child needs to help them be independent and remain included.

Increasing independence
The VELA Tango 600ES is an activity chair for children and young people which increases the independence and mobility of the user whilst providing maximum comfort and support at school and home. The user can apply the brake and raise the height of the chair independently to safely get in and out of the chair.

Aiding concentration
The supportive paediatric seating and backrest helps the user sit in the optimum sitting position with minimal effort. This helps support learning and increases concentration as the user has more energy to focus.

Ergonomic support
The seat height can be adjusted to fit any table or desk height. The chair’s footplate is raised and lowered simultaneously with the seat ensuring feet are fully supported at all times. Various additional accessories are available such as lap belts, lateral supports and headrests to further increase support and comfort.

Key Features:

Easily accessible brakes ensure stability when transferring in and out of the chair.

Wheels are positioned on all four corners of the base, enabling the chair to be moved easily around the home or classroom.

With many different seat and back sizes available, the chair truly grows with the child. Accessories are retrofittable enabling the chair to adapt to ever changing requirements.

Electric ‘hi/lo’
The chair rises at the touch of a button allowing the user to access work surfaces of different heights such as science benches, breakfast bars and dining room tables independently.

With it's small footprint, this model is ideal for tight spaces in the classroom or at home.

  • Accessing higher surfaces (science benches, breakfast bars, dining room table)
