Permobil Introduces the M3 Corpus!


Permobil introduces the M3 a revolutionary new mid-wheel drive power wheelchair. With a standard speed of 6 mph, the M3 is unlike any other mid-wheel drive power chair; the M3 can cruise at over 3 mph with full suspension from any position or seat elevation. The M3 ushers in an era of performance and sophistication never before seen in a mid-wheel drive chair, completely redefining ability and what users can do with mid-wheel drive.

“The M3 represents the most comprehensive launch Permobil has ever done. With the focus on creating the best customer experience.” said Richard Foshee, Creative Manager at Permobil North America. “We already have a massive amount of demos being shipped into the field and we are prepared to take, build, and ship M3 orders starting February 20!” said Andrew Kwarciak, Product Manager at Permobil North America.

“Permobil is a company built on innovation,” said Larry Jackson, President of Permobil North America. “50 years ago our founder Dr. Per Uddén invented our first power wheelchair and 37 years ago Permobil invented the first seat elevator. Today we continue that tradition of innovation with the launch of the M3, the first mid-wheel drive chair to incorporate FlexLink™ full suspension while driving from any position or seat elevation. The M3 also utilizes ActiveReach technology, another Permobil innovation that combines the highest seat elevator in its class 12” with up to 20º of anterior tilt, allowing people to access more within their environment than ever before. Why, because we believe that an independent life, without compromise, is a basic human

right for all people.”


Conquer your day with a suspension meticulously engineered to help you maintain better positioning, feel more secure, and reduce driving fatigue. The unique suspension geometry and linear spring design of the M3 Corpus provides a more stable chassis while the vibration damping FlexLink™ ensures a smoother ride over a variety of surfaces.


This innovative combination of swing arms, linear spring design and FlexLink™ suspension enables the M3 to achieve full suspension at ANY elevation, seating position or driving speed so that you never have to sacrifice comfort for function.

For even more stability in elevation, the seating system moves rearward 3.5″ and maintains three points of contact with the chassis at all times.


Your world isn’t one-dimensional. Your seat elevator shouldn’t be either. ActiveReach™ technology is the ultimate advantage in accessing your environment. By combining 12” of seat elevation and up to 20º of forward tilt, Permobil’s ActiveReach™ technology enables you to reach beyond obstructions, into high cabinets, and can even assist in transfers. Truly putting your world within reach.


Our focus on end-user performance is evident even in the smallest details. An improved 7” caster design and adjustment-free flutter dampening device means you will move more confidently at low speeds, in tight areas, or even while using a variety of alternative drive controls. You can now turn the way you want with full caster clearance even at a 90º leg rest position. This level of precision engineering helps ensure improved drive performance and a more consistent driving experience for all users.
