Permobil – F3 Front Wheel Drive Powerchair

THE F3 BASE offers the smallest footprint of Permobil’s redesigned series of front-wheel drive power wheelchairs. Its size and agility let users move quickly in and out of tight spaces like busy city streets and crowded areas like malls…or even parties.

The platform has a lower, repositioned center of gravity, which greatly improves stability while traversing inclines or declines. With its fully independent suspension, the F3 provides a comfortable ride and allows users to navigate the obstacles of life.


The F3 Corpus comes standard with all of the ergonomic and technological advances of the Corpus seating system from its sleek and stylish design that fits the contours of the wheelchair user’s body to its revolutionary tilt and recline features. Unique to the F3 Corpus are the 12” seat elevator and the A/P tilt, which allows for optional 30° of anterior tilt and 50° of posterior tilt. There’s no need to comprise comfort with a smaller chair, and the F3 is proof of that.
