Live Better with a Lift Chair from VELA

Most adults can effortlessly reach upper cabinet or closet shelves without worrying about falling. For those with a disability, poor balance, or leg weakness, reaching items on higher surfaces can be challenging and dangerous. At VELA, our lift chairs empower those with limited mobility by helping them enjoy a higher quality of life.

User-friendly and versatile, our electric lift chair allows you to efficiently move around even when you are elderly or have physical limitations that affect balance, strength, or coordination.

Clever Lift Function

With its built-in electronic height adjustment feature and sturdy brake, our chair with lift safely supports your body until you achieve a stable standing position. At the press of a button, our ergonomic electric lifting chair will rise slowly as you lean on the armrests, minimizing the likelihood for posture-related issues like dizziness, falling, or back pain.

As an added benefit, the VELA Chair’s easy-to-use lift function lets you reach high and low surfaces while seated.

An Electric Lift Chair that Adapts to Your Needs

In addition to providing assistance when standing up, our electric lifting chair has leading- edge technology that “raises the bar” when it comes to your comfort and convenience. With its ergonomic design and advanced features, a VELA Chair can be used throughout your home while adapting to your daily needs.

Enjoy Endless Mobility

Many seniors and disabled adults still experience pain while sitting in a mobility chair. Unlike similar mobility chairs with wheels and armrests, the built-in lift function on a VELA Chair minimizes the effort required to use the chair.

Once you’ve engaged the handbrake, our chair’s electric height adjustment comfortably supports your body, while the sturdy armrests help you maintain your balance. Those features allow you to conserve energy and strength while seated, even when rising up.

Enhanced Freedom Throughout Your Home

Our electric lifting chair comes with four, smooth-running wheels and plenty of foot room, making it highly mobile when used in most any space in your home, including the kitchen, dining room, bedroom, and bathroom. Once you’ve released the brake and lowered the seat, you can comfortably remain seated while “walking” your VELA Chair from Point A to Point B.

Ideal for most floor surfaces, the wheels stay out of your way while minimizing your risk for falling. The chair’s large wheels also make it easy to move from room to room while navigating through doorways and around your home as you go about your daily routine and enjoy a newfound sense of freedom and independence.

A Mobile Chair Lift that Won’t Roll Away

Stability is essential for those with balance and coordination issues. You can adjust the seat height on a VELA Chair based on your specific task, whether it’s unloading a lower dishwasher drawer or accessing items on an upper closet shelf, without worrying about losing your balance. Simply set the sturdy handbrake before starting your activity to keep the chair from rolling away.

Enjoy the Ultimate Seating Experience with an Electric Chair Lift Recliner

Because our power lift chair for some elderly and disabled adults also doubles as a recliner, we’ve designed it to be ergonomic and comfortable. The electric lift feature lets you adjust the chair to the ideal position for sitting or smoothly transitioning from one activity to another throughout the day. Whether you prefer to do chores, socialize with loved ones, or just relax and watch TV, our chair’s electric lift and reclining features ensure maximum comfort and individualized support.

With one of the electric recliner lift chairs from VELA, you’ll be able to minimize pain and strain as you effortlessly attain the perfect height for every daily activity. Using this function will allow you to customize your seating experience and achieve a superior level of comfort as you seamlessly complete your daily routine.

How Our Electric Lift Chair Benefits You

Enjoy peace of mind as the VELA Chair’s electric lift gently helps you rise to your feet. As our ergonomic chair securely supports your body, you’ll feel a heightened sense of stability, strength, and freedom – even while using both hands.

Because our electric lift recliner chair combines three features in one, you’ll be able to live independently and manage routine tasks all by yourself. A VELA Chair empowers you in the following ways:

Providing rising and sitting assistance

Promoting fluid movement while seated

Ergonomically supporting a comfortable and proper posture

Adults with physical limitations are all too familiar with the daily challenges they face. That’s where the VELA Chair comes in. The raising function on our electric lift recliner chair greatly minimizes those challenges, relieving stress on the body and conserving energy that can be used on pleasurable activities. 

Cast Your Worries Aside with a VELA Chair

Thanks to the electric lift function on your VELA Chair, you’ll experience a newfound sense of comfort, freedom, and independence as you kiss limitations goodbye around the home. Use our mobility and transitioning aid to embark on an amazing journey as you discover a more fulfilling and self-reliant life filled with endless possibilities.
