The base of the Ella is foldable for compact storage and transport. The upright column with all supports is easily lifted off the base and the folding mechanism requires only the loosening, not removing, of two screws.
With four locking castors with ball bearings, the Ella is easy to move along the floor and over obstacles up to 3cm high. Higher than that requires some help with lifting.
The tilt is operated either by foot pedal and hands (manual) or a handset (powered) and is stepless, meaning that you can set the angle to any desired position between 0° and 90°.
The height of the base is optimized for the foot rests to be as near to the floor as possible in upright position, while maintaining a low height for the column with supports when in horizontal position.
Access to the patient is made easy by making the front of the base frame open and having indented bends on the sides. The open front also allows the center column, and therefore the foot rests, to reach lower toward the floor.
