Short Description

Vela Twist is an adjustable, self propelled chair that is a hybrid between the Vela work chair and a rigid frame manual wheelchair. It is designed for indoor use and has adjustment of the seat height, depth and tilt including the backrest and armrests. All functions can be adjusted with the user sitting in the chair. The folding armrests allow the user to laterally transfer, such as to a bed or another chair. Available in one standard configuration but the supplier can customise the seat width and depth and backrest. Optional accessories are available.
