Specialist mobility chairs for a wide variety of needs
Many illnesses, whether temporary or chronic, can cause disabilities that affect the individual’s level of activity, making it difficult to continue with everyday activities at home and in the workplace.
This applies, for example, to people with arthritis, spinal diseases or multiple sclerosis, and can cause varying disabilities such as balance problems, reduced strength in the legs, arms or hands, reduced mobility of the joints or pain.
It is well known that you recover faster if you keep yourself going. The same applies to chronic disease, when you have to cope with various disabilities. Aids and changes in your environment can help you continue with daily activities and chores.View the VELA Range
