March 5, 2018 – Permobil Seating and Positioning introduces the new and improved line of BodiLink® accessories. BodiLink features a complete line of fully adjustable Head Supports, Lateral Trunk Supports and Lateral Pelvic and Thigh supports with a variety of pad sizes and fabric options.
“After years of gathering feedback from consumers, clinicians, and ATPs, we are excited to launch a family of accessories that sets a new standard in adjustability, comfort, and durability. The new BodiLink accessories have been engineered to an industry-best strength standard, which is supported by a lifetime guarantee against any manufacturer defect,” says Eric Murphy, Vice President of Product Marketing and Product Management for Permobil Seating and Positioning.
BodiLink accessories have been designed with the body’s shape in mind. With a combination of strong, low-profile hardware and moldable, supportive pads, each accessory is designed to be mounted on virtually any power or manual wheelchair. Glidewear®, an option available on all pads, enhances comfort and reduces shear forces by up to 88%.

“A major factor in Permobil’s decision to acquire Comfort Company last year was to add both Comfort’s existing product portfolio and expertise in hardware and accessories,” says Tom Borcherding, President of Permobil Seating and Positioning. “This launch of the BodiLink platform of hardware and accessories showcases the innovation for which Comfort Company is known, and raises the bar for the industry and the clients we serve in this important category of wheelchair seating and positioning products.”
