Frequently Asked Questions

Go to FAQ
  • What is a disability chair called?

    A disability chair, also known as an assistive chair, mobility chair, or adaptive chair, is specifically designed to aid individuals with physical disabilities. One such example is the VELA Chair, a high-quality assistive seating solution that promotes independence and comfort with its adjustable features and efficient mobility design.

  • What do you call a chair that helps you get up?

    A chair that aids users with disabilities in standing up is typically known as a lift chair or power lift recliner. However, another and more subtle and versatile solution is the VELA Chair, which, with its adjustable height feature, can help users safely transition from a sitting to a standing position, offering support and stability during the process.

  • What chairs are best for limited mobility?

    For individuals with disabilities resulting in limited mobility, chairs offering support, adaptability, and enhanced mobility are crucial. The VELA Chair stands out in this category, with its adjustable and secure design. The chair’s flexible features, secure brakes, and smooth-rolling wheels make it an excellent choice for individuals with limited mobility.

  • What is the best alternative to a wheelchair?

    While wheelchairs are a common solution for mobility challenges, alternatives like the VELA Chair can offer greater flexibility and comfort. The VELA Chair combines the mobility benefits of a wheelchair with the convenience and functionality of a standard chair. It’s adjustable, secure, and easy to maneuver, making it an exceptional alternative to traditional wheelchairs.

  • Can you use a wheelchair if you can walk?

    Yes, a wheelchair can be used even if a person can walk. Sometimes individuals with mobility issues can walk short distances but may need assistance for longer ones. Some people might need assistance at the end of the day due to fatigue. Chairs like the VELA Chair are perfect in such situations in the home, as they allow for secure mobility while also offering the option of walking when the user feels able. However, VELA Chairs are not suitable for trips outside.

  • Can you use a wheelchair if you’re not disabled?

    While wheelchairs are primarily designed for individuals with mobility impairments, they can also be used by those without disabilities in certain situations, such as recovering from surgery or injury. The VELA Chair, in particular, can be a practical choice for such temporary needs, providing comfort and mobility assistance while promoting recovery and regaining independence in daily activities.

  • Can you use a wheelchair without being disabled?

    Yes, wheelchairs can be used by people who are not permanently disabled but lack energy or strength to get through the day. They can also be used by people who require assistance with mobility for a certain period, such as during recovery from a surgery or an injury. For these temporary needs, the VELA Chair can be an excellent option. It provides the benefits of a wheelchair, like mobility assistance and comfort, while also facilitating an active lifestyle with its easy maneuverability and adjustable features.

  • What is a lift assist chair?

    A lift assist chair, also known as a power lift recliner, is a chair equipped with a mechanism that can tilt the chair forward and lift it to help the user move from a seated to a standing position. The VELA Chair, while not a lift chair in the traditional sense, offers adjustable height options that can aid in the process of standing up, providing a unique and adaptable alternative to typical lift assist chairs.

  • How to choose a wheelchair?

    Choosing a wheelchair involves considering several factors such as comfort, size, functionality, and the individual’s specific needs. It’s important to consider wheelchairs that offer good support, are easy to maneuver, and have adjustable features to suit the user’s preferences. One suitable option for the home is the VELA Chair. Its customizable features, including adjustable height, backrest, and armrests, coupled with its easy maneuverability, make it a great choice for regaining mobility at home.

  • How does a lift chair work?

    A lift chair works by using a power lifting mechanism that pushes the entire chair up from its base, assisting the user to move from a seated to a standing position. This can be particularly useful for the elderly who may have difficulty standing from a sitting position. The VELA Chair offers a similar feature, where the chair stays in place and the seat is raised and tilted, aiding users in safely transitioning from sitting to standing.
