Daily challenges in an X-ray department:

Examining many elderly patients who have difficulty in walking or other mobility problems.

Moving the patient to a device for examination.

Positioning the patient properly in relation to the device.

Keeping the patient still while the examination is carried out.

What the radiographer says about VELA X-Ray Chair

The patient lift chair saves time with the patient. It can be made ready before the patient enters and is easily and quickly moved and placed by the machine.

The patient sits comfortably in a stable position because the chair has an ergonomic seat and back, which are heavily padded.

The seat height can be easily adjusted by means of electric controls so that the patient is correctly positioned in relation to the machine. If the patient needs to be closer or sit in a better position, the backrest can be removed and the armrests can be moved up or down to become level with the seat.

The chair is fixed in place using the brake, which ensures the patient is sitting comfortably and completely still during the examination. The large wheels and central brake provide maximum safety and stability for both patient and radiographer.

The armrest of the chair can be used by the patient to get into and up from the chair. It speeds up the process and means that we, the staff, do not overstrain ourselves by assisting with the many daily transfers.
