TAMPA/ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Oct. 4, 2023) – Danish healthcare manufacturing company VELA Chairs has acquired longtime Tampa/ private company Enable Me LLC® and named it the exclusive North American distributor for its VELA Mammography Chair, which provides safety, security, and wellbeing for mammography patients.
“Seated mammography is growing in popularity for its many benefits to the patient, including reducing the stress of standing during the procedure and the incidence of unsteadiness and even falls,” said Mike Laky, founder and CEO of Enable Me. “The electric height-adjustable chair, with a push bar and lockable wheels, is also crafted to provide the most optimal working conditions for the mammographer while contributing to higher image quality.”
