March 6, 2018 – Permobil is pleased to introduce the My Permobil consumer app as part of the Permobil Connect platform. My Permobil is a free app that provides enhanced performance and usage data to help consumers with connected chairs get the most out of their Permobil. Users can easily view critical information as to their chair’s status such as battery charge and status level, travel distance and seat function usage to provide overall peace of mind.
“Whether at home or out in the community, My Permobil app is always accessible to consumers. In a world where everything is connected, it just makes sense for our wheelchairs to be as well”, says Larry Jackson, President of Permobil Americas. “Our consumers want to be able to live their lives and not worry about things like battery levels, actuators or mechanical issues. We are proud to be leading the way in combining the latest wireless technology with our wheelchairs to help improve quality of life.”
My Permobil connects consumers with service technicians in an entirely new way – now both the consumer and service technician can receive vital information as to the chair’s overall health and condition. With data constantly being transmitted from the chair, Permobil Connect can enable remote diagnostics to potentially help diagnose an issue even before it occurs.
“I have been a quadriplegic since the age of eight and have enjoyed the Permobil ride for more than 25 years. Permobil has always been on the leading edge of innovation, with a variety of power mobility solutions from front and mid-wheel drive to vertical standing. It is solid to see Permobil leading the way once again,” says Todd Stabelfeldt, technology enthusiast and business owner. “I don’t want to be the disabled person, I want to be a husband, a father, a business owner and knowing that my chair is being cared for lets me focus on what matters most to me.”
Permobil will feature the Connect technology platform and My Permobil consumer app at the International Seating Symposium (ISS) in Vancouver on March 6th-9th.
