    Product Features

    Functional and Manoeuvrable
    The VELA X-Ray provides quick and smooth manoeuvrability to each X-ray equipment location. The chair can easily be adjusted and the patient rotated in the chair.

    The central brake is instantly activated using the foot pedal located at the rear of the chair providing stability for the patient and confidence in the end result for the radiologist.

    Height adjustment is powered using an electrical motor controlled with the use of a switch under the armrest.

    “The chair is easy to use in the fluoroscopy suite. It allows easy movement of patients when in position. It is a comfortable chair for patients and improves the workflow when performing swallow tests in a fluoroscopy room for patients who are unable to stand”.

    Ben Pinnington, Superintendent Radiographer Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust London,

    The ergonomics of the chair and the padded seat ensure the patient is comfortable and stable. The small adjustable backrest in the lowest setting provides clearance to perform examination of the lungs on a seated patient. The armrests adjust easily to provide a clear view of the entire body. This X-Ray chair has all the angles covered to the extent that patients with scoliosis can sit comfortably during examinations, with the support of the staff if necessary.
