Everything you need to know about the Independence Chair™ Horizon

Notable features: This model is similar to the Independence Chair™ Active by VELA model. However, VELA engineered this model for easy lateral transfer between surfaces (ex: wheelchairs, beds, toilets, and other chairs). The features that enable this transfer are armrests that “flip” 90 degrees forwards, out of the way, and wheel locks on all four wheels (standard models lock into place with the back two wheels). This model includes Active seating.
