Thread: Permobil wheelchair restraint systems

    Permobil wheelchair restraint systems

    I use the Permobil Corpus 500 and have the Permolock C fitted in my van. What restraint system does the Permobil M5 use? Not sure why Permobil have designed their chairs to work with different restraint systems, surely it would be much more beneficial to have the one working with all chairs? If the M5 uses a different restraint system to the Corpus 500 then that means I can only use the corpus of my van. Or, if I want to use the M5 I will have two fork out another ?2500 to buy a new restraint system and have it fitted. Then I am left in the situation where I can't use corpus in the van.
