Permobil F5 Corpus power wheelchair is an addition of many small, smart improvements that makes the new F5 Corpus an ideal wheelchair for users with varied requirements. F5 Corpus helps to maintain and improve user mobility, independence and health by enabling users to reach a little bit further, stand a few minutes longer, endure even tougher challenges and get more out of everyday life.
F5 Comfort Ride™ Chassis
The finely tuned power base, along with proper seating and positioning, contributes greatly to the user’s comfort, saving their energy for the important tasks. The F5 features fully independent 4-wheel suspension which absorbs bumps and minimizes vibration, navigating smoothly over uneven ground while obstacles like curbs and door thresholds, are also managed with ease. Leading to less tone, less pain, less fatigue and longer sitting tolerance for the user.
The new suspension design ensures the user can confidently drive over a wide variety of challenging terrains, or up and down ramps, stopping at a moment’s notice under full control.
F5 assists the user with its outstanding maneuverability in tight indoor spaces and superior outdoor mobility. The innovative F5 chassis features a lower seat-to-floor height that contributes directly to better access, like getting close in to tables, behind the wheel of a car or when transferring.
The new motor design provides the user with enough power and speed to handle almost any situation outdoors, while care has been taken to maintain low-end torque so the F5 can be driven slowly and smoothly over indoor obstacles, like thresholds. Combined with ESP (Enhanced Steering Performance), this gives the freedom of movement. Also, the F5 is even quieter than previous models.
Corpus™ Seating System
Positioning and shear reduction
Corpus provides 175° of power recline with 110 mm of sliding movement (anti-shear) in the backrest. When reclining, the unique biomechanical backrest maintains the user’s body position in relation to the backrest, headrest, upper-body supports and alternative steering devices, like chin-control. This greatly helps repositioning for anti-decubitus and relaxation, and makes catheterization easier. The anti-shear backrest particularly helps users with skin breakdown issues. In addition, the adjustable backrest angle helps those with reduced hip flexion to adjust their sitting position, which increases sitting comfort, tolerance and reduces pain – even while driving and over longer periods of time.
Pressure relief and functional seating
Posterior tilting is a major factor in counteracting pressures sores. With up to 50° of rearward tilt, especially when used in combination with the power recline, the user can achieve a number of comfortable, functional positions – or combine them to maximize pressure relief.
Helping to treat lower extremity edema
The power leg rest angle adjustment is crucial for treating lower extremity edema, when used with tilt and/or recline, facilitating a draining position with the legs above the level of the heart. Adjustable leg rests can also help reduce or even prevent contractures in the knees.
|Reducing Contractures and Spasticity :-||Extension of the upper body and alignment of the hip assists in delaying skeletal deformities, provides knee range of motion and reduces spasticity, which can contribute to safer transfers and improved positioning in the wheelchair.|
|Enhancing Blood Flow :-||Standing upright, changing position in chair, removes constrictions to circulation created when sitting, also helps in reducing edema.|
|Breathing Easier :-||When standing, the chest cavity is expanded, making diaphragmatic movements and breathing easier. In turn, improved breathing often helps a person’s ability to communicate by making speaking easier.|
|Stronger and Straighter Bones :-||Weight bearing from standing has shown to be effective in improving bone mineral density.|
|Improving Bladder/Bowel Function :-||Risk of bladder infection is decreased as it makes it easier to empty the bladder completely.|
|Enabling Participation :-|
Seat elevating helps the user make eye contact while the anterior tilt function helps the user reach further forward for objects. Small improvements like these make participating easier, improving self-confidence and further increasing the desire to take part in daily life as much as possible.
Reducing Risk of Pressure Ulcers :-
|Offers regular pressure relief and improves sitting tolerance for those areas active when sitting or lying down.|
|Safer Transfer :-||Enables safe transfers – and functional access forward – with the help of seat elevating and anterior tilt.|
|Functional Benefits :-|
Maintains flexibility and allows for functional benefits in activities of daily living, such as better functional reach, seeing over obstacles, getting dressed and catheterization.
