    Product Features

    Your Indoor & Outdoor Hybrid

    The Permobil F5 Corpus Electric Wheelchair with agile suspension stands out as an ideal choice for those seeking enhanced mobility for a more dynamic lifestyle, as it is a great hybrid for indoor and outdoor use. It can be easily driven on many difference surfaces and for long distances, whilst maintaining the highest levels of comfort and stability.  Its exceptional manoeuvrability with a tight turning circle (74cm radius) allows the user to navigate tight spaces too.

    The F5 Corpus provides versatility with alternative driving controls for those not using a joystick, along with dedicated controls for assistants or caregivers. Additionally, for transport convenience, the removal of the upper backrest reduces the wheelchair’s overall size.

    Included in the package, the Permobil VoltPro charger and battery deliver 25% more capacity, extending the wheelchair’s range, and contributing to a 50% improvement in battery lifespan.

    This comprehensive list of features not only ensures enhanced mobility but also has the potential to bring about a positive shift in the user’s lifestyle, fostering greater independence and accessibility in daily activities.


    Beyond conventional features, the F5 boasts the ground-breaking ActiveHeight powered seat lift, enabling users to travel at speeds of up to 5 km/h while fully elevated.


    This seamlessly integrates with the ActiveReach function, offering a distinctive advantage in accessing surroundings. With a forward tilt of up to 45° and increased elevation, the ActiveReach function significantly aids in transfers and day-to-day activities, such as reaching a book on the shelf or grabbing the TV remote from on top of the chest.
