Permobil Original Elbow & Armrest Side Supports

Find a Provider

The Elbow Support and Armrest Side Support are adjustable supports that help prevent your arms from sliding off the side and back of the armrest, particularly during tilt and recline and while repositioning. By preventing the arms from sliding off the armrest, the Elbow Support and Armrest Side Support allow those with reduced arm function to reposition themselves independently, drive on bumpy terrain and maintain control of their wheelchair. These are the best arm supports for Permobil users because they are easy to adapt to whatever positioning you need, they fit well on chair and they work well with all of our other armrest options.

To be as active and independent as possible, you need to feel confident using all aspects of their chair, in all environments. For those with reduced arm function, performing tilt and recline maneuvers or traversing uneven terrain increases the risk that their arm may slide off the armrest. This can lead to injury and cause them to lose control of their chair. The new Elbow Supports and Armrest Side Supports keep the arm well-positioned on the armrest, thus helping to restore confidence and independance. The adjustable hardware allows the supports to easily adapt to your positioning needs. And since they’re designed for the Corpus Armrest, they fit great on chair and work well with other armrest accessories for a clean, cohesive solution.

Rolling Wisely: How To Mindfully Move With A Spinal Cord Injury

When describing how I manage and live with a spinal cord injury, I often use the term "mindful movement." I have come to understand that I must be aware and precise with how I move and treat my body to prevent further injury that would most certainly compound the difficulty I already live with. These are strategies that work for me and are not meant to take the place of guidance provided by a medical health professional.
Here are a few things to keep in mind while living an active, healthy lifestyle.

Is your client’s skin protected outside of the wheelchair? Examining short-term seating surfaces and when to use them

In the world of seating and mobility, pressure injuries are a big deal. It is our job as clinicians and therapists to prevent peak pressure through the use of seating and positioning products, to minimize risk of pressure injuries.

Exploring The PushTracker E2 with Aaron Baker

Four years ago my friend let me demo her SmartDrive & PushTracker, and within 10 minutes of using it, I knew it would change my life. Fast forward to today, and I have explored over 40 cities in the United States, discovered 3 countries, and traveled independently for business all because of the original Smart Drive and Pushtracker.
That is why when I discovered the new Pushtracker E2 I was a bit skeptical of changing a good thing. To be honest I am partial to the original MX2+ Pushtracker because it has literally changed my life. My thought was, if it’s not broken, why fix it?
