    Differences between Permobil F3 and F5

    Hi, besides price and insurance coverage (3 is categorized Group 3, the 5 a Group 4), does anyone know what the differences between the two are?

    Smile Anterior Tilt and Seat Elevation is the main difference

    The f3 has an anterior tilt maximum of 30 degrees and the f5 has a max of 45 degrees. The anterior tilt allows you to lift and transfer and to reach objects on shelves without having to "approach " the item from the side. The f3 seat elevatiion max is 12" and the f5 is 14". Also speed, the f3 max speed is 6.0 mph and the f5 is 7.5. Sorry if I sound like I am reading from a brochure but I am, in fact, reading from the brochures. I downloaded them for my own research just before logging in.

    My problem makes being able to tilt forward an important problem that I am trying to solve, so when I found out about the Permobil f series, I read everything on their site.
