Daily challenges for the assisting nurse:

During surgery, it is often difficult to get close to the patient without compromising ergonomics and maintaining a good sitting position.

When you assist during surgery, you sit in different work positions, for example when you are assisting with surgical tools or operate the microscope. A good chair must be able to support the different seating positions.

What the nurse says about VELA Samba 400

During surgery, I move around between several different instruments and locations. I need to be close to the microscope and ready to assist the eye doctor while also being close to the patient. The smooth-running wheels and the easy rotation make this possible without causing any unnecessary twisting in my back or shoulders.

My VELA Samba 400 provides a good working position and allows me to easily change the work height due to the foot-operated height adjustment.

During surgery, I switch a lot between sitting and standing. The small size of the chair means that it is not in the way when I’m not using it.
