We’ve completely reimagined front-wheel drive.

The F5 Corpus features an array of advancements to help increase the stability of the chair for a smooth, comfortable ride, including: a smaller footprint with an improved center of gravity, a more rigid chassis, fully independent oil-dampened suspension and a lower seat-to-floor height. The new three-point tilt and elevator system provides solid stability and performance. The standard 7.5 mph motor package with improved torque allows users to easily navigate obstacles at any speed. Options include: black tires with more aggressive tread patterns, chrome accents and two additional color options.

  • Fully Independent Suspension

    A true fully independent suspension allows the F5 Corpus to absorb everyday terrain and obstacles with minimal translation to the end user. Our updated shocks are fully adjustable with an included 4mm tool all while the user remains in the chair. The ride quality is like nothing you’ve experienced in a power wheelchair before.

  • 14″ Seat Elevator

    The new seat elevator utilizes 3 points of contact and shifts the seat rearward as it elevates to maintain an unimaginable level of stability even at full elevation. This allows individuals to get closer to tasks while providing almost twice as much elevation twice as fast.

  • Lower Seat-to-Floor Height

    The lower Seat-to-Floor height on the new F-Series means an improved accessibility to your world.

The Corpus® Seating System.

We retained all of the things that you have come to expect from the legendary Corpus seating system like the arc legrests, the open armrest design and the UniTrack System. Then, we took the Corpus seating system to the next level with advanced features such as: the 14” seat elevator and the A/P tilt function, which allows for optional 10°, 20° and 45° of anterior tilt, while maintaining 50° of posterior tilt. The A/P tilt helps our users with transfers, added reach, and allows them to get closer to a table or workspace.

Enhanced tilt functionality.

With optional 10º, 20º, and 45º anterior tilt, while maintaining 50º posterior tilt.

We build for you.

Look around Permobil, and you’ll see people who not only understand the challenges you face, they live them every day. And they know how to use design, technology and creativity to solve these challenges.

What in the construction of an offloading wheelchair cushion allows for pressure redistribution?

Part 5 in our Wound Care Guide series.SeePart 1,Part 2,Part 3, and Part 4.Check out our comprehensive, digital Wound Care Guidehere.

Through the built-in contours of an offloading style cushion, the therapist can help align and stabilize the spine, pelvis, and LEs to allow the pressure and shear forces to be transferred from a smaller surface area to a greater surface area. The contours needed for offloading pressure are:

Offloading vs Immersion: Wheelchair Cushions for Pressure Injuries

Part 4 in our Wound Care Guide series.SeePart 1,Part 2, Part 3.Check out our comprehensive, digital Wound Care Guidehere.

The rule of thumb to minimize peak pressures with the goal of reducing the risk of or healing an existing pressure injury is: remove pressure from a small surface area that cannot withstand constant pressure or shear forces and REDISTRIBUTE it across areas of greater surface area. For example, we can redistribute pressure from the ITs to the femur and as much of the gluteal surface as possible. And we achieve this through either offloading or immersion.
One method is not necessarily better than the other; a therapist must understand what the benefits and considerations are of all methods and choose the best option for each patient. Utilize cushions that through their construction offload or immerse, or combine the principles.
Let’s review in detail the principle of offloading.

The Benefits of Standing for a Wheelchair User

Part 2 in our series focusing on wheelchair solutions for Veterans. See Part 1 here.

If you work in an office setting, you’ll notice that there is an increased push towards standing desks and even treadmill desks. It has been well documented that prolonged sitting affects your health. So, if this is true for able-bodied individuals, it is certainly true for a wheelchair user.

1 This represents the theoretical driving range when testing the wheelchair according to RESNA WC-2, Section 4. This test is performed under ideal conditions and actual range will vary depending on battery and driving conditions. These specifications are dependent on the configuration of the wheelchair. For further information not mentioned in this sheet, please refer to the user manual which can be downloaded from the Permobil web site, or contact your local Permobil office. *The range may be reduced if the wheelchair is used frequently on slopes, rough ground or to climb curbs often.
