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.

The benefits of a solid back for everyday wheelchair users

Benefits of the right back support:
For a person who uses a wheelchair most of the time, the back support plays a key role in optimizing function and independence. A solid back support for an individual, especially one who utilizes a rigid manual wheelchair, may accomplish some or all the benefits below:

Provide trunk stability and balance by supporting the natural curves of the spine
Enhance the cushion in promoting pelvic stability and pressure redistribution to minimize peak pressures
Decrease the likelihood of/or progression of postural abnormalities
Decrease pain and increase sitting tolerance
Promote optimal function, safety, and independence by increasing the connection and responsiveness of the manual wheelchair
