Evolutionary Becomes Revolutionary

The Corpus Seating System features an ergonomic design that follows the contours of the body. The seat’s width and depth adjustments are indexed and clearly marked for a custom fit, and the adjustable backrest has a strong formed aluminum shell that accommodates virtually all after-market backrests. For added comfort, the seat cushion provides a space for a variety of Ischial inserts and the seat cover is available in both black mesh and leatherette.

    Go beyond typical seat elevation to maximize your function. Every F-series chair equipped with an elevator can also offer a programmable Anterior Tilt package of up to 30 or 45 degrees.

ActiveReach Technology

While functional reach and transfers are improved using a seat elevator, many functional tasks are still limited as the chair is positioned sideways to the task at hand or your knees are unable to remain under tabletops. Permobil’s ActiveReach Technology pairs 12″ and 14″ of seat elevation with functional reach packages so that you can face your objectives as well as a variety of possible transfer positions.


10º | Assists with stand pivot and lateral slide board transfers. Overcome fixed hip angles and maintain a functional line of sight.

20º – 45º | Programmable backrest and legrest angles ensure stability and function as you move into a fully tilted position. The removable knee block maintains positioning throughout.

30º – 45º | Position footplates to the ground negating the need to flip up footplates for safe transfers.

While Medicare does not recognize/pay for wheelchairs in the Group 4 category, it is important to at least briefly discuss this grouping as some private insurances, as well as the VA, will occasionally fund these bases. Also, some clients choose to pay the difference—out of pocket or through fundraising—to upgrade to this grouping of chair as it really is what best meets their needs.
