Manually Operated Height Adjustable Mobility Chair


VELA Tango 500 is a new, upgraded design of the popular Vela Tango range designed for active people for use at home, at the workplace, and in rehabilitation or training facilities to secure an optimal sitting position as well as optimal ergonomics, safety and comfort for all persons with disabilities or limited mobility. The large handled brake system gives a fixed position when needed, or when unlocked the four large-diameter wheels provide easy manoeuvring.

The new 500, and 510, all come with a seat recline function, as well as the usual seat incline that allows ease of exit from the seat. But the 500 and 500E also comes with the unique ALB backrest system that allows for very easy adjustment of the lumbar support.

The lumbar support is moved easily and smoothly forwards and backwards using a handle, which provides variation and support in the lumbar region. The upper part of the back meanwhile retains its angle in relation to the pelvis, so that the user is also guaranteed support for the upper part of the back.

The new potential for movement in the lumbar region is a benefit to people with mobility problems so they have the opportunity to activate their body while sitting in the chair.

VELA Tango 500 has all the benefits of a work chair, such as good stability, large castors, central brake, adjustment of seat height, seat rotation, seat angle, foldable adjustable armrests and a wide range of accessories to choose from.

Sitting heights are between 42cm and 65cm with the 150mm Lift. This can be set at intervals according to the needs of the user and is set as standard at interval 1 with a height range of 42-57cm. Alternatively a 200mm lift can take the chair between 47cm and 75cm at intervals.

TRIED & TESTED 4-Wheeled Braking System

The central braking system is easy to lock with one handle and incredibly stable providing the confidence to be able to get in and out of the chair without fear of the chair slipping away from you  Added to this the stable armrests make it easier to get into and out of the chair: the user can lean their full weight onto the armrest as the chair will not move. This is a benefit to users who have problems regarding mobility or balance

The chair has smoothly running wheels and plenty of room for the feet. This means that when unlocked, the user can easily ‘walk’ the chair while sitting down and move around without assistance - promoting independent living/working.

VELA has an extensive range of accessories (Please inquire by phone or email): Seats, Backrests and Covers, Armrests, Leg Rests and Footrests, Foot Ring, Headrest and Body Supports, Seat Belts,  Table Tray, Brake Pedal, and Strolling Bracket.

In designing the VELA Tango range, focus has been on ergonomics, safety and VELA's high-reputed quality standards. Moreover, the chairs have been developed to comply with all relevant requirements and standards.

The chairs in the VELA Tango range have been developed to ensure a high level of comfort and ergonomics.

The unique lumbar support helps the back assume the correct position (a gentle S-shaped spine as seen from the side), thereby ensuring the least possible strain on the lumbar vertebrae.

The seats in the VELA Tango range are upholstered with a solid cushion which, thanks to the specially developed foam zones, ensures optimum sitting comfort for the user.
Sitting comfort is therefore good, even when the seat is in a tilted, active position.


  • Arched steel frame made from profile tubing ensures that all the wheels remain in contact with the floor, even on uneven surfaces

  • Each wheel is secured with a wheel spindle in a tower

  • Seat mechanism is fully mechanical.
