Lessons learned in our many years of developing Standing Power Wheelchairs

It is easy to look at the F5 Corpus VS and be in awe of its ability to transition someone from sitting to standing with smoothness and grace. While the flagship chair of the Permobil line is amazing in all capacities we cannot overlook the lessons we have learned in the last 43 years of manufacturing standing power wheelchairs. What you all know as the F5 Corpus VS was a lifelong journey of love, dedication, and the drive to give our end users the same technological advantages that we all use in our everyday lives

Lesson #1: End users need a full range of power seat functions
While the first Permobil standing power wheelchair in 1977 was innovative, we quickly discovered that compromising other power seat functions to achieve our goal was not ideal. From only utilizing recline and power leg movements, to limiting tilt to 25 degrees in the 1980’s and 90’s, we learned that asking our end users to give up key components of their seating system would not best meet their needs. In 2004, with the introduction of the Permobil Combi, we accomplished our goal of giving our power wheelchair end users full power seat functions and did away with the “either/or” option. Our standing wheelchair has continued to evolve into what we know today as the F5 Corpus VS.

Maintaining Your Ride: Manual Wheelchair Maintenance

This is 4th blog in the series Maintaining Your Ride. Check outblog 1,blog 2, and blog 3.

Manual wheelchair users are not excluded from the need to perform regular wheelchair maintenance. The adverse effects of not maintaining a manual wheelchair include wheelchair breakdown and being without mobility.
Steps for Maintaining a Manual Wheelchair

Clean manual wheelchairs often and we recommend every 2-3 weeks
Inspect for wear & tear
Tighten hardware such as seating components such as caster/forks. Listen for sounds your wheelchair doesn’t normally make as this is a good indicator a part is loose.
Inspect seating components such as cushion, seat sling, and back support
Adjust as needed such as wheel locks and tire pressure adjustments
Proactive replacement such as tires, casters, and upholstery
