Evolutionary Becomes Revolutionary

The Corpus seating system features an ergonomic design that follows the contours of the body. Seat width and depth adjustments are indexed and clearly marked for a custom fit and future adaptability. The height adjustable Corpus Ergo backrest features a strong formed aluminum shell tapered to provide support and maximize upper body function. The sliding backrest assembly can also accommodate virtually any after-market backrest.

Industry leading Corpus power seat functions perform like no other with biomechanically optimized pivot points, seamless shear reduction and enhanced legrest articulation to maximize positioning throughout full range of movement. Power positioning is further enhanced with programmable memory seat positions and the exclusive Independent Repositioning Mode (IRM). IRM enables automatic sequencing of tilt, leg elevation and recline promoting maximum benefit of pressure relief protocols without loss of positioning.

Challenges of a Home Health Therapist

Home health care is on the rise as a viable option for therapy especially as the health model shifts from fee-for-service to value based care. Inpatient rehab stays are getting shorter and therapy is increasingly being provided at home due to the significant cost-savings 1,2). Permobil understands that home health is a unique setting, and we want to address the specific challenges to providing seating and wheeled mobility interventions in the home. In today’s blog, we’re discussing why home health therapists may feel ill-equipped to providing these services when asked to do wheelchair or seating evaluations.

Power Wheelchair Suspension: What You Need to Know and What to Look For

Today's blog is written by Rachel Fabiniek, our clinical educator in Australia. Rachel has been offering a blog series on drive wheel configuration which has led to this blog on the importance of power wheelchair suspension for the end user. Although all power wheelchairs have some sort of suspension, it’s important to understand that they are not all equal. Read Rachel’s blog to better understand what you should look for when comparing power wheelchair suspension.

How high can your wheelchair take you?

Power seat elevation is a seat function available on power wheelchairs that may allow a person using this wheelchair to perform tasks and reach things that they might not otherwise be able to do from a typical seated height. Permobil has continued to improve the functional use of power seat elevation. Not only do we offer power seat elevation, called Active Height™, we offer anterior tilt called ActiveReach™. ActiveReach™ can create different experiences and interactions for wheelchair users as it brings them into a more functional position for daily tasks and allows the person to interact with their environment in a whole new capacity. This blog will highlight the tremendous advantages of ActiveHeight™ with ActiveReach™ and why this function should always be a consideration for appropriate power wheelchair users.
