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?
