Permobil Headrest w/Link Hardware

Find a Provider

Available in three widths, 7”, 10” and 14”, the new headrest pads feature a dual layer foam for exceptional comfort. The foam is covered in waterproof stretch fabric that is cut for a clean, tailored look. The sides of the headrest pads can be shaped for lateral support, and a series of holes along the outer back edge provide attachment points for future headrest controls and supports.

Positioning the headrest pad is easy with the new modular link hardware. The order, number and orientation is completely customizable to achieve just the right position. All adjustments can be made using the on-board tool in the backrest. Further adjustability is provided by the backrest receiver, which not only holds the headrest at a number of settable heights, but can be flipped to increase height range.

In addition to exceptional comfort and adjustability, the new modular link hardware is strong. Aluminum keys run the length of each link and interlock with those of the next link to maximize surface contact and ensure joint stability. The keys are contained within a molded High Density Polyethylene Shell that is ultrasonically welded along the seams. The result is a strong, though lightweight, headrest mounting system. Available on all Corpus, Corpus 3G, Corpus HD and Corpus VS configurations.

As we’ve been discussing the benefits of front wheel drive recently, we had an unsolicited story come our way. Joseph Maimone lives in NC and is a published author, radio contributor, and has a following on YouTube. He sustained a spinal cord injury from a skiing accident in 2004 and has been in a wheelchair ever since. This is his story of how standing has improved his health and lifestyle. Thanks to Todd Dewey, ATP with Numotion for connecting us with our friend Joseph to share his story.

Benefits of Front Wheel Drive Part 1

Part 1 in our two part series exploring the potential benefits and uses of front wheel drive power wheelchairs.

We at Permobil have over 50 years of redefining not just ability but also mobility. Today we are focusing on front wheel drive solutions and our story really starts with our founder, Dr. Per Udden who made the first Permobil power wheelchair in the basement of his hospital in Sweden. Dr. Udden believed in a better solution that allowed his clients and patients to get independent mobility, and with this idea in mind he created the first power wheelchair. Early on, Permobil has believed in the benefit of front wheel drive as an ideal platform for indoor and outdoor mobility.
So how do you know if a Front Wheel Drive power wheelchair is right for you?
