Permobil has once again changed lifestyle expectations with the New M5 Corpus. The M5 mid-wheel drive power wheelchair is in a class by itself, with the ability to travel at speeds up to 3.2 miles per hour from an elevated seat height of up to 14 inches. It’s also the latest chair to feature Permobil’s trademark ActiveReach technology with 20º of forward tilt. There is now nothing you can’t reach, and no road you can’t travel.


This is the mobility device for the intrepid, even if the adventure is in your own home or backyard. Permobil’s FlexLink Pro™ dynamic suspension offers unsurpassed stability and comfort, coupled with advanced vibration reduction. The M5 offers different tire options for both casters and drive wheels, giving you the choice to customize your ride and go where you want to go.


Larry Jackson, President of Permobil North America, says, “Permobil is proud to continue our tradition of innovation. When our founder invented the first power wheelchair fifty years ago, he paved the way for the M5 Corpus.  As groundbreaking as the M5 is, we will continue to innovate, because we believe that independence is a basic human right for all people.”


Pilot a New Adventure

In the tradition of high-performance motors and gearboxes, the M5 Corpus takes control with a 7.5 mph motor package and superior torque. This coupled with a 14″ seat elevator that maintains full suspension at any seating position and drive speed, will help you take adventure to a new level.
