Parkinson’s Aid for Daily Routines around the Home

Nearly one million people in the United States are living with Parkinson’s disease, a brain disorder that causes unintended or uncontrollable movements like shaking and stiffness, as well as balance and coordination issues. For those diagnosed with the disease, symptoms begin gradually and worsen over time. At some point, most Parkinson’s patients cannot perform activities of daily living without caregiver assistance.

Thankfully, many assistive tools for Parkinson’s disease are available, making it somewhat easier for those living with the disease to manage their symptoms. At VELA, we believe our multi-functional chair could be the best chair for Parkinson’s patients.

An All-in-One Speciality Chair for Parkinson’s Patients

With a VELA Chair, you can rest easier as a Parkinson’s patient knowing it will support your daily routine by offering you these benefits:

  • Greater mobility
  • Improved stability
  • Additional security
  • Enhanced comfort and safety
  • Safer transfers

Because Parkinson’s initially presents through involuntary movements and balance issues, performing normal, everyday activities – like dressing, eating, and cooking – may become increasingly more challenging.

A Chair for Parkinson’s Patients

Parkinson’s also affects the brain’s motor cortex by disrupting sensory initiation signals, which may cause the patient to fall when trying to walk. As their nervous system gets slower and slower the risk of falling increases; a factor that makes sitting down essential for their safety and well-being.

As one of the best walking aids for Parkinson’s patients – one that also helps prevent falls – a VELA Chair promotes self-reliance by allowing users to safely move around while sitting down.

Make Mealtimes More Enjoyable with a VELA Chair

Some Parkinson’s aids and equipment are hard to use while sitting at the dinner table. Body tremors can make mealtimes a frustrating experience for those living with the disease and their loved ones.

Parkinson’s patients who develop dementia often have difficulty understanding what’s going on and may get confused, frustrated, or agitated due in part to their involuntary movements.

Our Experts Are Here to Help

Relax and Enjoy Each Other’s Company

When used at the table, a VELA Chair can provide stability and support while making mealtimes more enjoyable for everyone. As Parkinson’s mobility aids, the four, smooth-running wheels on our chairs allow you to gently transport yourself or your loved one to the table. Once you’re there, simply activate the chair’s brake to hold it firmly in place.

The padded seat, backrest, and armrests combine to form a healthy boundary that gently and securely coddles the user while alleviating their concerns. These built-in features support the body and promote a proper posture, reducing the likelihood for slouching or a choking accident.

A Parkinson’s Lift Chair with Locking Wheels

Is your illness affecting your balance or leg strength? As a dependable Parkinson’s getting out of a chair aid, a VELA Chair has a robust central brake that can quickly be used to transform the chair into a stable base. Once the wheels are locked, you can safely sit or transfer from your chair to a bed, couch, toilet, or different chair.

Enjoy peace of mind knowing your chair won’t roll away when involuntary movements occur or you need to stand up or sit down. Once you’ve set the brake, you can use the sturdy armrest for additional sit-to-stand support.

A VELA Chair is also an electric lift chair that allows you to adjust the seat height up or down at the touch of a button while transferring to or from other surfaces. Because our chair helps you gently stand up, just like a sit-to-stand lift, you’ll be able to conserve energy that can then be used to socialize with loved ones or do your favorite hobbies.

As multi-functional Parkinson’s aids, our chairs help users overcome daily challenges and manage their disease so they can live with a heightened sense of dignity and self-esteem.
