The chair that grows with you.

Designed to grow with a child for years to come, the Koala Mini-flex is the ideal pediatric wheelchair for toddlers. While it is scaled to fit the needs of children, the Koala is built with the same rugged motor and front-wheel-drive technology as Permobil’s full-size adult chairs.

The low seat-to-floor height allows little users to interact at the same height as their peers, and the integrated elevation provides them with easy access to a variety of surface heights such as tables and desks. Plus, the tilt feature offers improved stability and rest, a necessity after a long day of play.

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.
