Permobil Tilite Active Wheelchairs

Permobil's Tilite range of active wheelchairs are considered the ultimate in vibration reducing titanium-manufactured wheelchairs.

This TiFit process ensures your wheelchair is bespoke made to you, and allows you the widest choice of configurations so the wheelchair is built around you.

Specialist Seating

Permobil make an extensive range of seating and positioning products, which we demonstrate and use in assessments.

Roho are renowned for their air cell technology, their cushions providing outstanding levels of skin protection and pressure relief. They have a range of options from foam air hybrids to complete air cushions, each configurable to find the right balance of pressure relief and stability needs for an individual. Roho also offer the Agility back, a popular choice that can fit to almost every wheelchair, manual or powered. It provides significant posterior and lateral trunk support, and uniquely includes lateral and lumbar adjustable air inserts.

Comfort Company backrests include the Acta range that uses a patented conforming aluminium, providing lightweight support and optimising postural positioning. Lateral support can be integrated into the backrest for a discrete finish or added as a swing away option for variable needs throughout the day. 

V-Trak backrests can be an alternative lightweight option. Their backrests offer discrete support with options for sleek, adjustable hardware. The V-trak range is  modular, allowing them to be adapted to support complex requirements. Their segmented backrests allow us to offer precision support in all three anatomical planes, even when the direction of support required differs from one end of the clients' back to the other. 

EvoShape custom moulded seating from Supportec is robotically manufactured specifically to the shape and contours of an individual body, to correct or accommodate anatomical asymmetry - in turn providing comfort and stability. A unique combination of pressure relieving materials are selected on an individual basis to maximise pressure relief and in high risk cases, completely offload bony prominences or concern areas. The digital production of these seating systems means that the shape match accuracy compared to the body is upwards of 98% and the unique build techniques from Supportec offer some of the slimmest laterals on the market. The digital nature of these systems mean that they can be reproduced at the push of a button for a second seating system or for other applications with different materials such as hygiene seats. The same techniques can be used to produce sleep systems and equipment to support a 24 hour postural management routine.
