Permobil, the power wheelchair specialist, has announced it has joined the Motability Scheme.
The business has extended its range of wheelchair options for people on the scheme, which helps those with a disability exchange their mobility allowance for a new car, mobility scooter or electric wheelchair.
Permobil UK country manager Gordon Cunningham: “Providing our innovative power wheelchairs on the Motability Scheme allows us to pursue our shared mission with Motability, to provide greater independence for every individual. We completely support the idea behind the Motability Scheme and are proud to be a selected partner.”
Permobil will start by offering three power wheelchair models – the M1, M3 Corpus and the M5 Corpus – designed to meet the needs of various conditions.
Product manager Linda Nilsson said: “As a product manager I feel very passionate about the impact we are able to create for each individual. By offering our well-designed power wheelchairs on the Motability Scheme we are able to aid more people to increase their freedom and independence. For me that is a true driving force.”
Permobil power wheelchairs will be available for order on the Motability Scheme from July 1, 2021.
