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).
