    Product Features

    Enabling You To Stand, Anywhere!

    The F5 Corpus VS power wheelchair is built to revolutionise lives: consider someone who has been confined to a seated position for a long period of time, and can now stand confidently and safely — the ability to stand and drive at any point during the standing sequence not only facilitates face-to-face communication but also rejuvenates social interactions, fostering a renewed sense of connection to family and friends.

    Practically, the Permobil F5 Corpus VS facilitates seamless transitions from sitting to standing, making daily activities much more accessible — reaching high shelves, engaging in eye-level conversations, and navigating different environments (both indoor and outdoor). This power wheelchair is not just a means of mobility; it empowers users to lead more dynamic, engaged, and fulfilling lives.

    Ergonomic Design

    The ergonomic design of the F5 Corpus VS brings numerous benefits to the user, ranging from improved social interactions and enabling face-to-face conversations, to better health outcomes such as enhanced pressure care and improved circulatory, gastrointestinal, and respiratory systems.  With built-in stable and durable front-wheel drive, the F5 VS can handle practically any terrain without sacrificing the user’s comfort.

    This electric wheelchair boasts fully independent agile suspension and automatic, self-adjusting support wheels, ensuring unprecedented comfort and stability, particularly during standing and driving. Various alternative driving controls cater to non-joystick users, and separate controls for assistants/caregivers are available. For transportation convenience, the upper part of the backrest can be removed to reduce the wheelchair’s overall size.

    With the Permobil F5 Corpus VS, users have the flexibility to stand and drive at any point during the standing sequence. The redesigned chest bar enhances both comfort and stability.

    Permobil’s ActiveHeight powered seat lift offers full suspension at any seat height, while the ActiveReach function combines seat height with seat tilt, enabling users to reach higher and farther.

    The included Permobil VoltPro charger and Permobil battery provide 25% more capacity and enhance battery lifespan by 50%.

    Permobil Corpus Seating System

    Incorporating the customisable Permobil Corpus Seating system, the F5 Corpus VS adapts to the body’s natural form, reducing the risk of pressure injuries. Featuring five power seating functions and three programmable seat memories, this system ensures the user’s comfort and well-being.  The seat’s 180° rotation also facilitates easy mounting and dismounting.

    Tailored To Your Needs

    A huge range of additional features and customisation options can be explored with your Vivid Care assessor and Permobil expert, ensuring your powerchair is fully tailored to meet your needs.  We will meet you at your place of residence, or at our showroom (whatever you prefer), to conduct a thorough consultation/assessment.  This will be to take all the key measurements needed to guarantee a mobility solution that fits your needs exactly, and enables complete support, care, and independence.
