Permobil Adjustable Height Panel Bracket

Find a Provider

Permobil users have the right to be in complete control of their chair. To support that right, we offer joystick mounting hardware that can precisely position the joystick and allow it to be cleared from the front of the armrest without tools or trouble.

The Adjustable Height Panel Bracket is a 2-piece bracket assembly that mounts to the UniTrack rail and enables the drive control and ICS switchbox to be positioned at a lower height to better support your needs, while preserving all the functionality of the Retractable Joystick Mount. The Adjustable Height Panel Bracket provides 45 mm of height adjustment below the armrest, plus 25 degrees of rotation for precise positioning to help you maintain control and independence.

NOTE: The Adjustable Height Panel Bracket can be used to lower the height of standard joystick and the Compact Joystick Advanced (additional hardware is required to accommodate alternative drive controls).

Manual wheelchair frame materials: 6000 & 7000 series aluminum

Hi again. In our last Balanced Ride blog we discussed the importance of material science in the complex rehab technology industry. Frame material choice in ultra-lightweight manual wheelchairs (ULMWCs) plays a pivotal role for someone searching for a more Balanced Ride. Today we are going to dive a bit deeper how and why aluminum is used when manufacturing ULMWCs. Aluminum is the material used most often, though it is still surprising that it was only 50 years ago that people started to use it in the design and production of ULMWCs. Especially when you consider the fact that wheelchairs or similar devices have been used for over 2000 years.
