Vela Tango 300 Chair (Heavy Duty Teenager & Adult Manual Chair)

  • £1,99900 Exc VAT


The Vela Tango 300 Manual Chair is our largest office chair with a brake, specifically designed for larger children, teenagers and adults who weigh up to 200kgs. The brake function can assist users with standing out of the chair and sitting back into it, whilst the strolling frame and large wheels make it easy to cross thresholds and move to different areas. In the home, the chair is commonly used in the home office, kitchen, dining room and bedroom

Key Features: 

Activity: The most popular feature is the brake because it allows users to feel safe when transferring. Because the brake is highly adaptable it can be used by 95% of people.

Safety: Whilst we strive to promote movement and independence, we don’t do it at the cost of safety. A core design principle embedded within every feature of the chair is safety. The best known safety features include the extra low weighted base which gives the chair exceptional stability. The chair can be fitted with a four point belt and the extra-large rubberised wheels are designed to hold position on slippery surfaces. The height adjustable arms have an anti-slip function, whilst the footplates allow users to always get their feet on a firm surface during sitting.

Flexibility: We understand that each adult has unique abilities and so a key part of the Vela Tango modular design is the facility to adapt the chair to match the users' requirements. Some of the most popular adaptations include: trunk guides, thigh guides, pommels, electric brakes, foot brakes, 4 wheel brakes, incontinence covers etc.  To see a full list of the accessories please see the tabs section.

Is it worth getting a strolling bar? Whilst not absolutely vital, strolling bars can be very helpful for moving the chair around at school or college or even at home.

The user can't reach a standard height hand brake can you adapt it? Yes, we can extend the hand brake so that is will be more accessible. If this is still not accessible we can offer a foot brake or an electric brake.

Will the chair go over thresholds? Yes, the chair will go over nearly all internal thresholds. To ensure you won’t have any problems during the assessment, we will assess how the chair moves about the user's environment.

Will the chair slip if my client pushes on it when standing up or sitting down? The chair has been designed with an extra low stable base and a hand brake to ensure that it is secure when children are standing up or sitting down. If you have a particularly slippery floor we can also supply a 4 wheel brake which offers extra stability during sit stand/stand sit transitions.

Can you provide a seat belt? Yes, we can supply a standard seat belt on a Vela Tango 300 manual chair. One of the most popular features of our 4 point seat belt is the dynamic fastening system which allows us to reposition the belt so that it can be optimally fitted to each individual adult.

Our Vela Tango chairs are modular and can be fully adapted to each users needs. We have listed a range of the adaptations that are available under four categories below. If you require an adaptation that is not shown below please contact us.


T-Bar brake system: As the name suggests the T-Bar is an extension that sits on top of the brake lever to make the handle more accessible.

Hand brake extension bar: The extension lever is add on feature that extends the height of the hand brake for people who have more limited reaching.


The Footbrake:
The footbrake is a simple to use plantar pressure operated system that can be used as an alternative to a handbrake.

4 Wheel brake system: Some tiled and wooden floors can be slightly slippery for chairs and for these environments we can use a 4 wheel extra stable braking system.

Support & Posture

Lateral supports for the trunk:
Using a highly engineered smart positioning system, lateral trunk supports can be strategically placed in a wide range of positions to provide extra support or guidance for the user. The supports can also be adjusted in depth and width to truly personalise the level of support given.

Soft Pommel: The soft pommel can be used in conjunction with the seat pan to help optimise hip and leg position.

Armrests with gutter support:
the gutter armrest provides all the benefits of a standard armrest with the facility to provide an extra layer of forearm support for those who need it.

Seat belt:
Our standard seat belt has a 4 point mounting mechanism designed to ergonomically support the thighs and hips and reduce sacral sitting.

An alternative to a footrest is the footring. The footring does not offer the same level of support as a foot rest, but is more compact and discreet.

The footrest is our most popular foot support for adults. It offers a large stable surface for feet when sitting at a higher level and can be folded out of the way when not being used.

The head rest can be used to offer an extra layer of support for the head and neck during sitting. The support has a 3 point pivot for extra positional flexibility and offers a soft but supportive padding.

Trunk Harness:
The trunk support can provide extra trunk support if required.

Thigh guides:
Thigh guides offer an extra lateral support that can be positioned at different parts of the upper leg to help maintain optimal lower limb alignment.

Abduction block:
An abduction block provides medial thigh support for correct alignment of the femur.


Covers for seat pans and backrests:
These covers are fluid resistant and washable.
