VELA Tango El Sit-stand Chair

VELA Tango El Sit-stand Chair

The VELA Tango Electric Sit-stand is a chair for individuals who need support and safety in a standing position, even in cases of reduced leg strength. The short seat with a raised pommel holds and supports the user and makes it easy to get close to furniture such as kitchen tables, worktops etc.

The electric height adjustment ensures that the user is supported regardless of whether they need to reach low-down or high-up places. The central brake makes the chair stable, which ensures that work in home areas, such as the kitchen, can be carried out safely and is ideal for:

  • Individuals with stiff hip joints, obesity or stability problems for whom a shallow seat with raised lip provides optimum support


  • Users who require support and safety while standing/sitting and also need electric height-adjustment to get into and out of the chair


  • The VELA Tango has a shallow seat with raised lip at the front as standard (B:46 x L:35 cm) and an ‘Ergo’ backrest (B:38 x L:22 cm)
