Products and solutions

Hospital chairs

VELA has the largest choice of hospital chairs on the market. As a rule they are in use every day of the week, 24 hours a day often by different people, each with their preferred settings and functions. This means the chair must be able to withstand significant wear and tear. Our chairs meets these requirements while fulfilling the need for an ergonomic, functional and comfortable product. We take into consideration the duress on mechanical parts and use fabrics that are particularly wear-resistant so that they remain attractive and serviceable for many years. Furthermore, VELA chairs are developed to save effort for the healthcare worker and to contribute to the patient's own ability to cope. This provides greater satisfaction for the patient and frees time and effort for the healthcare worker. Learn more ›

Patient's Chair - Mammography

The Mammography Department is part of The Department of Radiology at the Sydvestjysk Hospital. The patients have been referred by their GP for mammography or biopsy. These patients all have mobility problems or use wheelchairs necessitating sitting during examinations.

Work routines at the mammography department
The patient's chair is locked, and the apparatus is prepared for the individual patient. Then the position of the patient is adjusted relative to the apparatus. It is crucial to the success of the examination that the patient's breast is positioned correctly so that the films show the desired tissue. During the examination, the patient needs to sit perfectly still. Learn more ›
