    Cool Permobil C500

    I'm going to demo a Permobil C500 next week and I would like some feedback from anyone about it . It will have the Corpus seating system. I've never seen a Permobil wheelchair except in pictures and brochures.

    Some find the C500's STF height to be a little on the high side, and frontwheel drive can take a little getting used to, but IMO the Corpus seating system is the best out there. I really like the center mount legrests, lateral thigh supports, and lateral trunk supports.

    The standard speed package on the C500 may provide better real world performance than the "S" package (better torque). The Permobil's I have spec'd out for veterans have been very reliable and the Permobil reps for my area have been fantastic.

    Good luck with the demo.

    I got the C500 last fall with the speed package and I like it alot. If you can handle the speed, get it....it is well worth it. Also, get the seat elevator....very cool!
