Permobil has always provided innovative power wheelchair products while incorporating stylish design. Many of our Hummelstown area customers and clinicians that we work with have been extremely pleased with the Permobil brand. Earlier this year, Permobil launched their new power wheelchair called the Permobil F3 Corpus which we had a chance to first observe at the International Seating Symposium. We have since had a chance to deliver our first F3 Corpus and believe that consumers and therapists in our area are going to be extremely excited about the new product.
Permobil F3 Corpus is an exceptional power wheelchair, which offers one of the smallest footprints of the completely designed series of power wheelchair. This front-wheel drive wheelchair is considered to be one of the best choices for people with disabilities. The F3 Corpus power wheelchair comes with agility and size to allow users to easily move in and out of small, confined places, such as crowded areas, parties, city streets and more.

It is worth mentioning that Permobil has offered the platform with a repositioned, lower center of gravity. It enhances stability, while ensuring easy declines and inclines. With the independent suspension, the Permobil F3 Corpus wheelchair provides users with a comfortable ride. It also allows users to navigate various obstacles without experiencing any problems.
Seating System – The power seating system of this power wheelchair comes with an open armrest design, arc legrests and UniTrack system. It also comes with high end features, including the A/P tilt function, 12 inches seat elevator, anterior tilt, posterior tilt and more. With such features, users are able to enjoy comfortable seating positions. In addition to this, these features also help users with transfers and allow them to sit closer to a workspace or table. In simple terms, users enjoy additional reach.
Compact Stability – Permobil has designed a very powerful wheelchair. Though it has a compact design, it is still extremely powerful. This provides users with better maneuverability with the option to easily remove anti-tippers.
12 inches Seat Elevator – The advanced and upgraded seat elevator features 3 different points of contact. Thus, it easily shifts your position, and elevates quickly to maintain an exceptional level of stability at full elevation. Due to this, users are able to get closer to various tasks, while enjoying higher and faster elevation.
Superior Suspension – This power wheelchair comes with an independent suspension. Due to this, it is able to deliver a very comfortable ride for the consumer. While using this wheelchair, users do not experience any major problems.
While coming up with the design for this wheelchair, engineers working at Permobil had to face a lot of challenges. Besides the primary objective of providing users with more features, they also had to handle some specific requests. For instance, they had to find a definitive way to eliminate anti-tippers. In order to provide users with more stability, engineers had to specifically relocate the wheelchair’s batteries back in the chassis. This made it difficult to allow a conventional single-center-post seating model. When batteries were placed at the back of the chassis, engineers had to come up with a new and innovative way to elevate and tilt. Thus, they experimented with the posterior/anterior tilt module. They soon realized that this experiment could open a door to new possibilities.
The company believes that it is Permobil’s responsibility to maximize the freedom and independence of people using its products. Permobil F3 Corpus is a wheelchair that allows a user to be independent. It makes sure that the user does not experience any problems, and uses the chair in the most convenient and best possible manner.
