The VELA Mammography Chair is quick and secure delivering optimal patient positioning for the examination. The chair features smooth-running wheels, push bar adjustment and foot brake.
The VELA Mammography Chair takes the strain aiding staff to avoid back, shoulder and muscle injuries when having to adopt awkward positions to achieve effective screening. E.g. When tall patients are sitting the Mammography Chair allows staff to adopt a more relaxed working posture.
Positioning the patient is simple given the chair’s smooth running wheels and once in position the foot brake locks the wheels with the patient stable for the examination. The chair features electric height adjustment to easily control the patient’s position in front of the device for the best working position.
“I find the chair very user-friendly, easy to manoeuvre, and comfortable for ladies who cannot stand. In addition, we have found that the Vela Mammography Chair has helped improve patient flow with these patients.”
The chair’s various features are extremely useful, e.g. the side arms, lifting, tilting position, and it makes our job easier, assisting women who are unsteady on their feet.”
