Permobil M5 Corpus Power Wheelchair

The Permobil M5 Power Wheelchair follows your natural body movement, giving you a best-in-class driving experience, so you can sit for longer, reach further and travel greater distances – especially when driving outdoors. With advanced FlexLink Pro suspension offering independent drive wheel suspension, it sets a new standard for mid-wheel drive comfort, providing stability and grip on slopes and uneven ground. That stability means you can drive while elevated with full suspension functionality, while the brighter LED lights offer enhanced visibility giving you the freedom to go further.

The Permobil M5’s fresh aesthetics and expanded colour choices mean you can give your wheelchair a personality to suit you.

Permobil have also introduced a new battery with a VoltPro charger that provides up to 25% greater driving distance, reduced charging times and a longer battery life, which can all be tracked using the MyPermobil App. The MyPermobil App also gives chair insights, including seat activity tracking, battery range estimates, and an integrated map, allowing you to plan your journey and get more from every adventure.

Permobil M5 suspension
Conquer more with FlexLink Pro Suspension
FlexLink Pro takes your ride comfort to the next level, with an additional drive wheel shock for even greater vibration reduction. Independent drive wheel suspension and unique swing-arm geometry balances stability, traction and comfort for the ultimate in mid-wheel drive performance. 
Permobil M5 - ActiveReach in use
Up to 20º of ActiveReach

ActiveReach™ forward tilt enables you to reach for more by creating up to 4.5″ of additional reach. This can be used for reaching beyond obstructions, into high cabinets, or even assist in transfers. Truly putting your world within reach. While functional reach and transfers are improved using a seat elevator, many functional tasks are still limited as the chair is positioned sideways to the task at hand or your knees are unable to remain under tabletops.

Permobil M5 - ActiveHeight in use
Up to 14″ of ActiveHeight
Rise above the status quo with 12″ ActiveHeight seat elevator options that help you reach new heights. Featuring three points of contact and a 3.5” rearward shift as the system elevates, experience maximum stability and a smaller footprint in elevation. ActiveHeight also does not lock out suspension at full elevation, so keep pace with a smooth ride at a top speed of 5.1 km/h.
