    Permoble m400

    I just ordered a new Permoble M400 to replace my Q6000 from Pride.My Insurance company would not stick anymore money into my Q6000 they replaced all the wiring and computers twice. Was wondering if anyone has any problems with there Permoble.

    Permobils are mechanical devices. They break.
    However, they break a lot less than most others I work with.
    I haven't seen the M400 yet, but the M300s I've put out are all still running strong (Knock on wood.) Serviceability on these is light years ahead of older Permobil models and the updates to the Corpus seating system are terrific. As long as you set it up correctly, you ought to like it.

    I got an M300 last August. So far no problems other than a few screws that needed to be tightened.

    I have a M300 for 6 months now and it works great no problems. I also have a C500 that I have been using for 5 years and no problems or break downs.
