Why Use Our Office Chair with Locking Wheels?

Locking office chair wheels

Our easy to use handbrake lets you lock and unlock the wheels in seconds, quickly transforming your electric lift chair into a safe and secure base. 

Enhanced mobility

Notably beneficial for those with balance issues or limited mobility, our office chair with brakes delivers precision stability and control so you can move about freely with peace of mind. 

Adjustable seat height

Thanks to its built-in seat height adjustment function, our chair minimizes back strain and breathing issues by promoting a proper sitting posture. As a result, you’ll enjoy a more relaxing seated experience all day long. 

Supportive armrests

Supportive armrests: The armrests on a VELA Chair provide reliable stability and comfort even while sitting for prolonged periods. Once you’ve set the brake, they provide assistance as you gently transition from chair to other surfaces – supporting ease of movement and a heightened sense of independence. 

Comfort and support

Comfort and support: Ergonomically designed using top-quality materials, our office chair with locking wheels offers adjustable whole-body support, greatly reducing fatigue while enhancing overall user comfort. 

An Activity-Supporting Office Chair with Locking Wheels

At VELA, our office chairs for seniors and disabled adults have four, smooth-running wheels that allow users to “walk” or push the chair around while seated. This feature can be a welcomed relief for anyone with leg weakness, low energy, or back discomfort.

When not in motion, simply set the sturdy handbrake and resume your activities.

By enhancing your movement, our chair allows you to perform most daily activities yourself, which can also significantly boost self-awareness and self-esteem.

Attain New Heights with Our Wheel Lock Office Chair

Once the wheels are locked, our chair’s easy-to-use height adjustment feature is ideal for those with balance issues who get anxious when leaning forward or reaching for items. At the touch of a button, you can adjust the seat height with precision accuracy as you safely reach higher surfaces with renewed confidence.

Gently raise or lower the seat height for tasks like paying household bills, working on that big job presentation, or meeting with clients in the office.
