Vela Chairs Most Common General Questions


What is the user weight limit for VELA chairs?

We have several types of chairs that can handle different weights. We make chairs for both children and adults. Our standard adult chairs are tested and approved for a 160 kg maximum weight load. We also have bariatric chairs with a 300 kg maximum weight load. You can see the maximum weight load and recommended user weight on a specific chair by looking at the product sheet of the chair or contacting a dealer for specific advice and guidance on which chair to choose.


Electric or manual height adjustment?

The primary functions of the VELA chairs are wheels (mobility), ergonomic chair with armrest (comfort and stability), brake (safety) and height adjustment (activity). You get the most out of your VELA chair when you change your sitting height accordingly to your activities. The height adjustment can either be activated by using electricity or by using a gas spring.


What is the difference between a chair with a gas lift and an electric lift?

One of the essential functions of our chairs is height adjustment. You get the most out of your VELA chair when you can change your sitting height according to your activities. Therefore, you must choose the height adjustment according to which type you can manage. Choose between:

Electric lift, if you lack the strength to use your legs whenever you need to change the seat height, or you can’t get up and sit down without assistance.

Gas lift, if you have the leg strength to change your seat height, every time you need to sit differently, and you don’t need help getting up or sitting down.


Can I use a VELA chair on my carpet?

The VELA Chair is suitable for use on low-pile, wall-to-wall carpets. However, please note that it is not recommended for use on high-pile carpets, as the resistance of high-pile carpets may hinder the chair’s smooth movement.

Additionally, for your safety, avoid using the chair on loose rugs. Loose rugs can shift, fold, or slip, increasing the risk of accidents and falls. It’s essential to ensure a stable and secure surface when using the chair to maintain your safety and comfort. If you have any questions or concerns about using the chair on specific floor types, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer support team for guidance and assistance.


Can I use the VELA chair on hard floors?

Yes, a VELA chair has rubber wheels that roll nicely and “soft” on hard floors.


What is the height of the seat from the floor at the lowest and highest positions?

The height from the floor to the seat varies from 38 cm to 51 cm, depending on the model. The height adjustment interval is 10, 15, 20 or 30 cm, depending on your need. 


How wide is a VELA chair? 

A standard VELA chair is only 65 cm wide, which means you can get the chair through a doorway and manoeuver it in a small kitchen.


Does the chair need charging every day?

It depends on how much you use the chair’s electrical functions. However, we recommend that you charge the chair every day. Daily charging extends the battery life as well as ensure adequate power for the entire day.


Can I buy a cover for the seat of the chair? 

Yes, we have water-repellent covers for the chair seat, which is especially good if you have incontinence or spill a lot, e.g. when eating.
