A Senior Chair That Also Helps You Get up More Easily

In addition to helping you move around the house much better, the VELA Chair also provides extra support when you need to stand up while transferring to the bed, toilet, or couch. First, set the brake and rest both feet securely on the floor.

Next, press the button located under the armrest and the chair will start to rise. Once you’ve attained your desired position, you can then safely and securely stand up and move to another surface without having to strain or exert much energy.

Product Information:

  • What are the uses of VELA Chairs?

    VELA Chairs are designed for the home and workplace to help users get back to living and working more independently. Whether it’s cooking in the kitchen or getting back to projects so you can further your career, a VELA Chair helps you function where you need to.

  • Are there different models of the chair available?

    Yes, we offer four models: VELA Independence Chair, VELA Epic Chair, VELA Epic Plus Chair, and VELA Apex Chair. Compare them here.

  • What is the weight limit for the VELA Chair?

    The VELA Chair Finder asks the necessary information from you to evaluate which model is the right fit. Access the Chair Finder here. If you need further assistance, please contact us. We are here to help.

    Your VELA Chair arrives 95% assembled. You only need to attach the backrest, no tools required. Watch a demonstration video here.

    Unboxing and Assembling

  • Is the VELA Chair an approved medical device?

    Yes, the chair is a FDA-registered medical device.

  • Can VELA Chairs be used on various flooring types (carpet, wood, tile)?

    The VELA Chair can be used on all hard flooring like wood, tiles, and linoleum. It is also suitable for use on low-pile, wall-to-wall carpets. However, please note that it is not recommended for use on high-pile carpets, as the resistance of high-pile carpets hinders the chair’s smooth movement.

    Additionally, for your safety, avoid using the chair on loose rugs. Loose rugs can shift, fold, or slip, increasing the risk of accidents and falls. It’s essential to ensure a stable and secure surface when using the chair to maintain your safety and comfort. If you have any questions or concerns about using the chair on specific floor types, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our customer support team for guidance and assistance.

  • Are height-adjustable models available?

    Yes. All VELA Chair models have electric height adjustment. Find a VELA Chair that suits your height the best by answering this short quiz.

  • Can the chair fit through a doorway?

    Absolutely. Our chairs are usually no wider than 25.6 inches, fitting standard doorways.

  • Can I purchase a seat cover?

    Yes, we offer water-resistant covers for the chair seat. They are particularly useful if you experience incontinence or tend to spill frequently, like during meals.

  • Does the chair require daily charging?

    Charging frequency depends on usage. We recommend nightly charging to ensure sufficient power. Regular charging also prolongs the battery’s lifespan.

  • How do I charge the chair?

    Charging a VELA chair varies depending on the model. You can find out how to charge your VELA chair by clicking the button below.

    Charging the chair
  • What is the expected lifespan of a VELA Chair?

    With proper care, expect at least 10 years of service, potentially extending to 15 years or more with regular maintenance. Note that this requires you take good care of your chair (see user manual) and wear and tear parts are changed when necessary (for example: the batteries, which have an expected lifespan of 3–5 years under regular use).

  • Can I move the brake to the left side of the chair?

    Yes, on the Independence Chair, the brake is shiftable. Watch this video for a demonstration.
    If you have a VELA Epic Chair, please contact us for more information.
