Permobil – F5 Front Wheel Drive Powerchair


It features an array of advancements to help increase the stability of the chair for a smooth, comfortable ride, including: a smaller footprint with an improved center of gravity, a more rigid chassis, fully independent oil-dampened suspension and a lower seat-to-floor height.

The new three-point tilt and elevator system provides solid stability and performance. The standard 7.5 mph motor package with improved torque allows users to easily navigate obstacles at any speed.


We retained all of the things that you have come to expect from the legendary Corpus seating system like the arc legrests, the open armrest design and the Uni-Track System. Then, we took the Corpus seating system to the next level with advanced features such as: the 14” seat elevator and the A/P tilt function, which allows for optional 5°, 10°, 20° and 45° of anterior tilt, while maintaining 50° of posterior tilt. The A/P tilt helps our users with transfers, added reach, and allows them to get closer to a table or workspace.
