Permobil Original Elbow & Armrest Side Supports

Find a dealer

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.

Power Wheelchairs: Where is my drive wheel and why does it matter? Part 2

The drive wheel on a power wheelchair is the larger wheel if you are looking at your wheelchair or client’s wheelchair. The location of this drive wheel can have a large impact on how the power wheelchair drives and maneuvers in different environments.
There are three main types of drive wheel configurations on power wheelchairs:front-wheel drive, mid-wheel drive, and rear-wheel drive. In this blog today, we will focus on mid-wheel drive.

We’re continuing to look at common misconceptions of seating and wheeled mobility in the home health setting. Last week we took a look at the misconception that someone else will deal with seating and wheeled mobility in the home health setting. This week we will discuss whether home health therapists are seeing clients who would benefit from appropriate seating and wheeled mobility services. This will help us determine whether this area of practice is relevant to the home health setting.
